Default D100 Lens

I emailed Nikon but they seem not to want to answer me, so maybe someone here will know.

Will the lenses from my Nikon FG fit the D100; yes I know I would have to manual focus.

Default lens compatibility

Yes, if they are AI, AI-S,AI-modified or Series E lenses they will physically fit the camera. You can manual focus but you also need a seperate light meter as the camera's meter system will be disabled. Non AI and certain specific older lenses can not be used.
Personaly I won't use mine.

Only took them a week to answer me. But here is what they said:



Dear Donald:

The D100 supports the following lenses:

1) D-type/G-type AF Nikkor: All functions possible
2) D-type Manual-Focus Nikkor: All functions except autofocus possible
3) AF Nikkor other than D-type/G-type: All functions possible except 3D
Matrix Metering
4) AI-P Nikkor: All functions except 3D Matrix Metering and autofocus
possible
5) Non-CPU: Usable in [M] mode (camera's built-in exposure meter does
not work)
Electronic Rangefinder usable with lens with maximum aperture of f/5.6
or faster; IX-Nikkors cannot be used.


Please reference case number K25XXXX if you have any further email
questions on this issue.

Thank you for contacting Nikon, Inc.

Sincerely,
Heather
