I am new to this site so if this is the wrong place for this question please advise where I should have posted.

I have an F-801s body and the following lenses

AF Zoom-Nikkor 35-70mm f/3.3-4.5
AF Zoom-Nikkor 75-300mm f/4.5-5.6

I am looking at getting the D70 and using my existing lenses. According to info I have found I think the lenses I have fall into the category

“Other AF Nikkor : All functions supported except 3D color matrix metering, i-TTL balanced fill-flash for digital SLR”

If I go down this path am I going to loose a lot of functionality by not being able to use “3D color matrix metering, i-TTL balanced fill-flash”?
Are these lenses to old to be used successfully with the D70?

Any help greatly appreciated
