What lenses can I use with a Nikon D80?

My gpa has an older Minolta300 mm lens.. does it have to be used with a Minolta camera?

Can my Nikon only use Nikon lens? Or are any 'interchangable'?

Sorry for the stupid questions..

minolta will only go with minolta, unfortunately.

You can use nikon, or you can use things like sigma, tokina and tamron, if they say nikon fit.

Re: What lenses can I use with a Nikon D80?

Many years ago Tameron used to make lenses called 'Adaptall', or something on those lines. You could get adaptors to fit between the lens and any camera body, so you could use your lenses with any camera. It made it much easier to 'jump ship' and change brands, just retaining the lenses and buying one or more new adaptors.

As cameras became more sophisticated with AF and metering systems it became impractical to carry on with the adaptor system, and easier just to make lenses with the correct fittings and contacts for each camera body.

Often, older lenses will fit new bodies of the same make, but without some or all of the functions we tend to take for granted now.
