in the camera’s bayonet mount and rotate the lens in the 
direction shown until it clicks into place.
If the lens is equipped with an A-M or M/A-M switch, select 
A (autofocus) or M/A (autofocus with manual priority).
Autofocus is available with AF-S lenses—one included in 
the lens kit option—and AF-I lenses. For information on 
lenses that can be used with the D60, see the User’s Manual.

reduce the effects of camera shake when shooting.
