    It called a CPU emulator and I have written it up recently in the D7000 section of this site ....go have a look ....I use it with my D3200 on a 35mm lens for exteeme Bokeh.
    Great way to void warranty and camera and lens...

    Drive = auto focus, does it not?

    In that respect, he's right. You could spend the time and money to chip a lens if you've got a couple, but if you have a large selection I'm not sure it's worth it - just get the better body.

    when I mean drive ,,, its the focus I am referring too, sure, can manual focus, but for some that large loss of function.

    I use some of my older AF D lenses (from F4 days) on my D3000 (not the 5100 or 5200, I know). So, big deal, one has to focus. According to everything I have read on Nikon's Web site, there is no indication that using one of these older autofocus lenses will void any warranty on any DSLR. Where did that idea come from? ... Just asking.

    yeah,, that would not make a lot of sense,,, I mean same contacts as the G,, so,, no way it oculd damage the camera, at least to my knowledge, maybe its a NIKON Myth.

    Re: D5200 vs D7000

    Dang, I just got a D5200 and now I'm wishing I bought the D7k instead. I have noticed something a little strange with the D5200. If I'm taking photo's of planes in the auto or sports mode the quality is very poor, to say the least. The good part is it has pushed me into using the manual mode and I'm learning more about the camera and as a direct result. I can still sell the D5200 and get a D7k... suggestions?
