think Pentax and Nikon Dslrs can use their older Manual focus lens
( with some metering restrictions ?? )
Minolta need a adapter .. same for Canon
( also with metering restrictions ?? )
so unless you really need the backward compatibility
best is to sell the older lens and get the newer versions.

That said .. i enjoy using some M42 lens in my Dslr
but you can get adapter for almost any Dslr to M42 ....

Nikkor AF lens can be used on Nikon DSLR, even Fiji DSLR also can.
ED lens do u mean the old Nikkor manual focus AI lens?

The nikon 80-200 F2.8 (whatever version) should be able to fit in all the DSLRs.

" Perfectly " is relative to your needs : )
but is will work enough to take picts

bring lens along when shopping for the Dslr
and try all of them ...
You are paying the shops for their service

The Nikkor AFD80-200 works ok for Nikon DSLR. U still have auto-metering and auto-exposure, the only difference is the Nikon DSLR have a small sensor (the crop ratio 1.6) so your zoom will "feel like" a AFD128-320.
