Hey.............and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Just wanna make 1000% (reality check) sure that an older Sigma 170-500 AF can fit my D70. Kinda like hooking up an old blind horse to a Ferrari, but I'm cheap. What can I say?

Thanks in advance for any advice you can give.

Are you in the wrong forum?

The short answer is yes... if it's a Nikon mount
This is an older lens with no HSM, and the Nikon's uses a mechanical 'Philips' screw drive instead of the electronic serial protocol a' la Canon or Nikon's AF-Silent drive which is in the lens

FYI - http://www.sigmaphoto.com/html/lenschart.htm
(D) Also means it'll transfer the proper distance info for the Nikon i_TTL flash system.
