Can you please provide more detail on 'AI modified'? What exactly is this? Where can you find a service to do this in the eastern USA? I have Nikkor lenses from 1974; i.e. 105 2.5 prime; 50 1.4; 55 3.5...would love to mount them on my D80.

>>- I have a Nikon F2 (35mm) - would the lenses for this
>>fit the D3000? I know that the autofocus would not work,
>>can they be used with manual focus?
>If your lenses were made before 1977 and have not been AI'd
>they will have to be AI modified to mount on the D3000 or any
>other Nikon DSLR.
>Cost for the modification about $35.00 per lens. On the
>D3000, D5000, and D90 bodies AI modified, AI, and AIS lenses
>will mount and work in Manual exposure mode without metering.
> DXXX and higher bodies provide the ability to meter with MF
