Note: E lenses will be essentially “maximum aperture only lenses” on many cameras made prior to the switch. This includes the F6, D1 series, D2 series, D40, D40x, D50, D60, D70, D70s, D80, D90, D100, D200, and D3000 bodies. Nikon erroneously labels these cameras as “incompatible” with E lenses, when it really is “losses functionality."
