No. It's not compatible.

Even if you could find an adapter that lets you mount it (which is doubtful), you wouldn't have metering. So, you'd be shooting "blind" (you'd have to estimate the aperture, shutter speed and iso speed needed for proper exposure without using a separate light meter).

Yes, you can use any Nikkor Autofocus lens on your D80.
