I just purchased a D5100 camera. I was told that the lenses I have that were used with my old Nikon FE2 SLR camera could be used with the new camera, although there obviously wouldn't be any autofocus function.

I have a couple Ai Nikkor bayonet mount lenses that I used with the FE2 aperture priority camera. Can I use these lenses with the D5100, and use the D5100 in aperture priority mode? I am fully prepared to manually focus the lenses.
