Hey all, I'm wondering if I made a mistake. When I was buying a lens for my F2 Photomic earlier on KEH I did some browsing and found a BGN rated N70 body for 16 bucks US. I passed on it for the following reason: Compatibility. I've been thinking about an autofocus SLR as a gateway to a Digital SLR in a year or two. However, I think I've seen on here in more than one place that the N70 won't work with VR lenses (which I'm eyeing for the sometime in the future D-SLR). It's also not compatible with the pre-AI lenses I have for my F2. So, is my knowledge correct.

If it is correct, did I still make a mistake by turning down this camera at this price? If I didn't, what autofocus body (cheap BTW) would be recommended to be either VR or pre-AI compatible?
