    I want to switch from the Nikon F65 I have to the Nikon D70, can anyone tell me if the lenses I have for my 35mm will fit on the D70?

    One person I have asked in a local camera shop says 'yes' but I'd like someone else to confirm it.

    Cheers,

    Bryan

    I know my Nikon AI or AIS lenses will work with a D70. You would need to manually set the aperture and shutter speed with each photo thoughÂ…

    You could always take one of your lenses into a camera shop and see if it fits...

    I don't know if this is similar to your point railman, but for one of my lenses you have to set the aperture to its smallest setting then the camera (Nikon F65) handles the exposure, could this be the same case for fitting it onto a digital slr.

    On another note, a review i read of the D70 this morning said its compatible with all Nikkor lenses so things are looking good.
