I am considering upgrading to the D700 from my D70. The only DX lens I own is the one attached to the D70.

I also own 8 Nikkor pre-AI lenses from the early 70s that I just learned can be converted for use with the 700 in FX format. These lenses are in extraordinarily good condition.

In addition to no auto-focus or auto-aperture functions, what other downsides are there to using these lenses with the D700?

My impression is that the glass in these is as good as or better than many of Nikon' current offerings (although, since they are all glass and metal, they are heavy).
