I am an amateur photographer and I am currently using a Nikon D5100 with the Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G lens.
I have been thinking of getting an old manual focus lens like a 50mm or an 85mm, because they sell pretty cheap on eBay and I do not have a lot of budget to play around with.
Since I have never used a manual lens before, I wanted to know a couple of things:
What kind of manual lens should i get for my D5100? AI or AI-S?
Is there a way for me to control the aperture through the camera itself? I have heard something about setting the aperture ring to f/22 before attaching the lens to the body and it should sync but I am not too sure about it. I have tried searching on youtube to find a related video on this but so far haven't found one.
So I was wondering if someone could kindly advise me on how to go about this
