I have several Nikon lenses that I have purchased over the years for my Nikon film SLR (28-85mm f/3.5-4.5, 80-200mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.4, 85mm f/1.8) and a Tokina AT-X Pro 28-80mm f/2.8. After reading that these lenses would work with the D80, I purchased the body only, attached the Tokina and EVERY single photo was out-of-focus even though the autofocus was on and the shot looked in focus in the viewfinder and screen on review. The other lenses hunt around so much I miss most of the people shots I'm trying to capture (Christmas morning-argh). I knew some of the functions wouldn't work but not autofocus.

Any comments on why this is happening? My husband is freaking out because now I want a DX lens!
