    I have a 70 to 300 AF 1:4-5:6 D and a 28-105 AF 1:3.5-4.5 D also a SB80
    Flash unit can any of these be used on a D40 or a D50 camera ?

    All of the items can be used on both cameras. However, the lenses you
    mentioned can only be used in manual focus mode on the the D40, which
    doesn't have an AF motor built into the body and will autofocus only with
    Nikkor AF-S lenses or third-party lenses like Sigma "HSM" lenses (which
    contain their own built in focusing motors). The D50 provides AF with
    Nikon's older AF lenses.

    Don't know about the SB80. The lenses will work fine.

    Based on past reading of Mr. Ruf, I know there is a message in there
    somewhere.
