I have put several Nikon lenses on my APS camera and on my D70. Some of the lenses protrude too deeply into the APS body cavity and inhibit the motion of the mirror. When I try APS lenses or my D70 lenses on my 2020 or other Nikons, there is severe vignetting. as in the photo in post #10.
Not all auto modes work, but most do. My best choice is my Micro Nikkor which works on all 3 camera series, APS, 35mm and digital.
