Basically, you can use almost all the newer lenses with all metering functions supported. Only problem is you lose the AF ability with non AF-S lenses.

There are no short prime lenses with AF-S, the only one short enough would be the 105VR macro anyway.

So it's either you learn how to MF with the other primes or look for a different camera body which allows AF on those lenses. D80 perhaps.

for AF operation you will need a lens with AF-S
so just look at the name and if there is no AF-S then cannot auto focus
