    I just got Nikon D3100. The only camera I have used in the last 13 years is the one in my phone. I used do photography for a living but just got burnt out. I have quite a few older non AF lens Nikkor lens.

    From what I can find on the Nikon page is they may work but I won't have all the auto features. That is fine, I can live without that. I read I also I will have to sync the flash at a speed lower than 1/200th, not sure what speed?

    Anybody using a newer digital camera with older lens?

    Since Nikon has maintained the same lens mount over the years, the older lenses do work, but without autofocus capability. Good luck.
