    Main reason I switched to Nikon. My old lenses are still usable in a D700.
    The old Nikon fairy tale. True, you can still use them, but the often-heard total compatibility within the Nikon system is only partly true. Especially when you want to use modern AF lenses on old cameras.

    Indeed, Pentax is the one with real backwards compatibility, since they sell an M42 adapter that allows use of any M42 lens back to 1948. Nikon's compatibility is pretty much AI/AI-converted & newer only unless you have one of the few low-end DSLR's which can also mount many pre-AI lenses (but not meter with them).
