It *is* good-looking - and it's been working flawlessly too Have you missed it much?
In a word: .... YES!

While I've owned many cameras thru the years, the only one I really miss is the D. But I'm glad to see you're getting good use from her....

Thanks again for all the help guys!
You convinced me to keep the lens until the adapter comes in the mail. I know it's not always a good idea to use adapters but we'll see how it goes!
I paid 30$ for the lens which is a bit too much from what I've read but I'll keep it as a reminder to do more research before buying lenses!

Hey guys, I just received the adapter (after one long month!) and for some reason, I can only take macro pictures? I thought it also took great landscapes but everything is always blurry in the back. Mmm... it might be the adapter's fault?
Can anyone clear this up for me?

Thanks!

Does the adapter have glass in it?

Then you'll only be able to do macro, you'd need a optically corrected adapter to reach infinity.
