Question about Nikon D90 Body Only Digital Camera
Yes and no. Physically they will all fit (with very rare exceptions, such as the 6mm f/2.8 fisheye).
Most Nikon dSLRs have a sensor that is smaller than a frame of 35mm film. What this means is that you end up using only the central area of each lens. In effect this means that each of your lenses is effectively 1.5 times longer. A 200mm lens on a digital camera will give you the same angle of view a 300mm lens on a film camera gives you. The D3 family and the D700 are the exceptions, behaving similar to a film camera in this respect.
Older Nikon lenses do not have the electronic circuitry necessary to communicate with newer cameras. In the case of the D90, this means that such lenses will not communicate with the camera's exposure meter. They can still be used in Manual mode, but without assistance from the meter. You'll need to move up to a D300 if you want to meter with such lenses.
Bear in mind that lens technology continues to improve every year. Given an old lens and a new lens of similar focal length (or zoom range), the new lens will almost invariably outperform the old one.
