    I have a N70 camera body & Nikon lenses for it... my grand daughter is really interested in learning photography, and I have an offer for a free Nikon D70 body from an old friend. Are the old lenses from my N70 compatable with the Nikon D70???

    I hope so, as I would love to see her pursue photography as a hobby, but need to know if this match-up will work.

    Thank you... Bob

    Free is good! What lenses do you have? They should all work...

    Yup, no worries, they will all meter and AF on the D70.... Going forward (just so you know) some of the smaller bodies do not have a focus motor built in so they all would be manual focus. I say get that free D70 and have fun teaching your grand daughter about photography!!!

    If I'm not mistaken, just about every lens from 1959 to present should work on every body since 1959 (or so). I forget where I read that...and that would be only for Nikon.

    Bad info. Nikon Non AI (auto-indexing) 59-77 can actually damage most modern Nikons. I'm not a KR fan, but here is a chart with some info about lenses...

    You're a tool. Somebody wants to do something nice for his granddaughter and you have to be a smartass.

    Bob,
    The D70s is a nice camera. I started with one. Your Grand daughter will love it.
