Old Lense and new camera

I have just ordered a NIkon D40X digital camera. I have an older Vivitar 70-300mm f4.2-f5.8Macro 1:4X N/AI-S lense. Can I use this lense on this camera? Are there adapters available if the footings are different? Will the digiatl camera understand what lense is on it?
Thanks,
Dan

    Does it need an adapter to get on the camera and is that expensive?

Here is a link to the lens limitations of the D40, same for the D40X:

The camera will not recognize the lens but you can take pictures setting speed and aperture manually. Since you see results after you take the picture, you can make adjustments to correct your exposure

I have small, fuzzy, gray spot in the same place on every photo. Nikon D40.


I would first try to clean the lense. If that does not work, swap lenses and see if it is in fact a problem with the lense or more with the body of your d40.

Lense will not work with SLR Nikon D90


This lens is too old for the D90, it has not got the electronics for metering and autofocus.
You can use it manually in M mode but you will have to set the aperture and shutter yourself.
The D90 manual has a section on compatible lenses, page 228 in my version.
This recommends CPU lenses for the D90, type G and D.

Lense compatible with the Nikon D40X

Nikkor lense


You need AF-S or AF-I Lenses. These have the autofocus motor built in to the lense. The D40 and D40x does not have an autofocus motor in the camera body itself, while the D80, D300, D3 Etc to have the motor in the camera. You can use most old lenses on your D40x, but you will have to focus them manually.
