    The speedlight will be 'quasi-compatible'. It will trigger, but won't have TTL capability. It will work just fine in manual however. Can't comment on the lens.

    My first autofocus lens ever was the 35 to 70 that you are looking at. It will work fine on any Nikon that has an in-body Focus motor. This is not a great lens, so you should not pay more than $45 or so.

    I personally would rather have an autofocus lens. The Nikon 43-86 Zoom has earned a bad reputation, largely based upon how bad the first version was,but there is one forum member here who has a later production model, which he likes.
    I would not buy a lens which is listed as AI, since it could be 40 years old or older. I would instead by a lens which is listed as AI-S, which would make it post 1977 in most cases, and much more likely to be a 1980s model or newer. If I had my druthers I would stick to AF or AF-D lenses. I do not mean to scare you away from the 35 to 70 f / 3.3... it was the original kit lens for early Nikon film autofocus cameras in the late 1980s and in the early 1990s. It is small and simple

    I am the one Derrel is referring to on the the 43-86. Mine is the later model but I got it for next to nothing and was very surprised it was not as awful as everyone said. I use it on my manual film bodies. It will CA on a digital body, no doubt, and I don't recommend one because getting lucky will probably not happen. I know its tempting to buy cheap lenses but often times it will serve more as a paper weight. Find yourself a good deal on a Nikon series E, AI-S 100mm f2.8 if your looking for a cheap but under rated manual lens. The lens is a strong performer. Flash is not a big deal. I use an even older one on my D610, no ttl. If you save up, get a godox 685N ttl and a x1 trigger. That way you could use ttl if you want or even HSS if your body has that feature.

    I am so glad I asked.. !!
    thanks for the great tips ..I am going to look into this lens you mentioned.. that's what I needed to know.. a cheap lens that performs well.. not a cheap lens that I will use as a paperweight.. right now going to buy a new pc.. but I wish it were a new lens.. but I will be very thrilled to find some reasonably priced lenses that teach me and give me some fun while I am learning.. thanks again

    It's inexpensive , yet decent. If you are looking for reviews of older equipment Ken Rockwell's website has lots of lens reviews. The price of an older lens play get big part in what time might think of it. For example the lens you list--if it's $50 or $75 I think pretty highly of it, however if it is $200 to $300 I don't think it's nearly worth that...
