    D40 and legacy / film Nikkor lenses ??

    Greetings -
    Am looking to buy a Digital SLR.
    I've got some older Nikkor single focal length lenses (used with my old Nikon FE), as well as some bigger (i.e. - heavy) Auto-Focus zooms on my N90.

    As a rule, will the older lenses work with a D40?
    Any caveats / gotcha's?

    Thanks

    - Richard

    They will not auto focus on the D40. Do yourself a favor and get a D300 for your Galapagos trip...or, at the very least, a D80...
