    A friend posted this question on a model railroading forum..

    "Ideally, I'd like to be able to use my old Nikon lenses. I've looked on-line at Nikons, some of which I can afford. What I can't find out is if the digital cameras will work with the old Nikon non-AI lenses."

    and since I'm not up on the older lenses I thought I'd ask you guys.

    Non-AI lenses can easily damage your digital SLR. Advised not to try.
