    Would this lens work on my D3300?

    I don't understand some of the terminology (like Q) . I know the lens is manual focus but will it work on my 33oo? Paul

    It will mount to your D3300 but it will not auto-focus nor will it meter for exposure.

    I believe the Q version have less glass elements in the lens than an AI version.

    That lens can potentially damage your camera if the mount hasn't been modified.

    Well I watched utube angry photographer and he said if I don't get one, I'm an asshole. I have the Nikkor 35mm F/2,8 as a portrait lens and I really like it. Guess I will stick with it!! Instead of more lenses, I need more practice. Paul THANKS GUYS

    There's the real problem.

    My advice: Get yourself a nice little 85mm if you want to focus (ha... photography pun!!) on portraiture.

    Old non-AI lenses are considered bad news on modern DSLR camera bodies. One story is that damage can be done to the camera electrical contacts. Many of the old lenses can be modified to be AI, but even then, the result is still 40 years old technology, manual focus, and you also have to set them manually for the exposure.

    Here is Nikon's assessment (note this one is a Nikkor Q lens):

    No, it cannot.

    It might damage some higher models, that have an AI coupling tab, but the D3300 doesn't have that.

    Nikon claims that only the DF model can use the old non-AI lenses. My D3200, my three old non-AI lenses, and I disagree.

    As far as I know, the only potential damage issue is with bodies that have a mechanical AI linkage. Non-AI lenses can damage that linkage.

    The D3x00 and D5x00 models do not have this linage, and are therefore not at risk of being damaged by a non-AI lens.
