Fuji Camera lens compatibility
Jun 5, 2010

I have some older mf Nikon lenses -- actually not Nikon-brand. They are of the same vintage as the ancient Nikon FE and Nikon FM film cameras. Will they work on my Fuji DSLR cameras?

I have Fuji S2, S3, and S5. The lenses, I think, are "Nikon AI" type. No autofocus back then. I was waiting to use them on a new Nikon camera body like an D700 or, wishful-thinking, a D3s -- these bodies I had heard had some special ability to use the older lenses. But now, I'm wondering if they will work on my Fuji bodies. Might they damage something if I try to mount them?

If I can mount them,
Will I get focus confirmation in the VF?
Will there be any metering at all, in any way whatever?

Thanks!!
