D3s compatible with 3rd party lenses?

Nov 10, 2009

I have the opportunity to acquire a D3s for reasonable money: of course I can test all my 3rd party lenses with it, but would be happier to receive your expert opinions on compatibility or otherwise with the following lenses:

Tokina 10-17 (worked ok on a D700)

Tamron 17-50 (probably not? though D700 automatically selected crop mode when this was mounted)

Samyang 24mm F1.4 - should be fine?

Sigma 14mm F2.8 HSM

Sigma 85mm F1.4 (my mainstay lens. it HAS to work with this)

Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 HSM II

oh and I have a couple of mf Nikkors just to prove my allegiance...55mm F3.5, 400mm F3.5. Of course I can expect some flak for using 3rd party glass but am hocking myself already to get the D3.....

If the lenses you listed worked on a D700, they will function EXACTLY the same way on a D3S.

Hope this helps...JL
