Nikkor AF Lenses
 
I have inherited 3 Nikkor AF lenses along with 2 Nikon N8008S bodies. I am looking to get a digital body which will work with these 3 lenses. The lenses are: Nikkor AF 35-135mm F3.5/4.5, Nikor AF 70-210mm F4, and Nikkor AF 35-70mm F3.3/4.5. I also have a fully manual 50mm F8 parabolic mirror lens with the same mount and a Nikon Speedlight 24. Advice is greatly appreciated.

First, none of them has their own autofocus motor, so they won't autofocus on the entry level D5000/D3100/D3000/D60/D40X/D40 bodies that don't have their own autofocus motor either.

Second, to be absolutely certain of a lens' compatibility, we might need the complete information that's engraved on the lens, but I think that, if they are compatible with the N8008S bodies you've got, they'll also be compatible with Nikon's other dSLR bodies.

In addition TC's response, your flash will only work in manual mode with all current Nikon DSLR's.
