Well, it looks like I'm in luck! All of the old lenses are AI. I had forgotten about the meter coupling lever, which, if memory serves me correctly, an astute salesman once pointed out to me when I was shopping for lenses.

I'm less certain of the quality of the non-Nikon lenses, but they should be good to experiment with anyway. Thanks for your advice; it's been very helpful.
