To sum it up...

You can use any Nikon bayonet F lens on your old F body, except for the "G" lenses which do not have a focus ring. You could use them, but would not be able to adjust focus.

It is possible to damage some late model Nikon bodies by mounting older, non-AI lenses on them. That is not a problem you will have with an "F" chassis.

My F does not have the Photomic finder. I enjoy the sports finder and the waist-level finder. I can use almost any Nikon bayonet lens ever made on my old Vietnam-era bodies.
