Can I use my old Nikon lenses on a digital SLR?
Nikon uses the name “Nikkor” for its lenses.
However, entry-level digital SLRs (DSLRs) such as the D3xxx and D5xxx series can mount these lenses just fine, although those cameras then operate without their light meter.
These lenses also work with many non-Nikon cameras through an adapter..
Are Nikon lenses universal?
No, they’re not. That’s the fast and simplest answer to this question. Not all Nikon lenses can be used with all Nikon cameras.
Can any lens fit any camera?

Does lens diameter make a difference?
From a pure optics perspective, lens diameter is crucial. Larger diameter accounts for larger light “intake”, and with more light ending up on the sensor, you can make the same image quality with shorter exposure.
Does 52mm filter fit on 50mm lens?
50mm is the focal length of the lens. … By coincidence, in this case the focal length and filter size are about the same. The filter size is a separate number on the front of the lens. And yes, the 52mm filter size will fit it.
What cameras do Nikon lenses fit?
You can use most older Nikon lenses on Canon bodies, for instance, with the right adapter. Most of the mirrorless cameras (Olympus and Panasonic m4/3, Samsung NX, and Sony E/FE) can use Nikon lenses with the right adapter, as well.
How do I know what size filter I need for my lens?
The filter size is usually printed on the lens. If you look at the front of it, it’s usually either just inside the edge before the glass (which I think is the case for your lens) or just along the outside of it. I suspect it’s 67mm, but you should confirm it.
Do all Nikon lenses fit all cameras?
Originally Answered: Do all nikon lenses work on all nikon cameras? Yes, except for very old models before 1959. It will “fit” because Nikon has the same bayonet mount called the Nikon-F mount which hasn’t changed since 1959! So all the lenses are interchangeable with film SLR and DX and FX bodies.
Are all Canon lens interchangeable?
This was the start of the single biggest native lens system for an interchangeable lens camera. If you bought a Canon EOS camera, you knew that any of the EF lens range would fit your camera. That stayed the same for 16 years. In fact, it’s still true – all EF lenses fit all EOS cameras, one way or another.
Should I use lens filters?
The filter provides protection for the lens Secondly, protection against dust, dirt, smears and scratches on the front element of the lens – The presence of a filter on the lens certainly protects the front element, as the dust, dirt, smears and scratches get on the filter instead.
