All non ai, ai, ais, AF, AF-d and some AFS lenses will mount on the Nikon F. Lenses made for DX (crop digitals), and APS film bodies won't work. The DX lenses will mount, but won't cover the whole frame. The APS lenses can damage the body. AF lenses designated G series won't work either - no aperture ring. Depending on whether you camera has the metering prism or not, only non-ai, ai, and AIS lenses will meter with the prism. All others have to be modified with a pair of "ears" to attach to the meter.
