I was wondering why on this table ( https://www.nikonians.org/nikon/slr-lens.html )is stated that it is possible to use pre Ai lenses on D40 without damaging the bayonet and not on D80. Both of them lack of the meter coupling lever so what is the difference in the bayonets that allow to mount F lenses on D40 (and similar) and not on D80 (and similar)?
