Do all Nikon lenses fit all Nikon bodies?

Originally Answered: Do all nikon lenses work on all nikon cameras? Yes, except for very old models before 1959. It will “fit” because Nikon has the same bayonet mount called the Nikon-F mount which hasn’t changed since 1959! So all the lenses are interchangeable with film SLR and DX and FX bodies.

Oh, and as an added bonus, 55mm on this lens has max. aperture of 1/4.0, which is twice as big as on the 18-55 kit lens (which has max. aperture of 1/5.6 at full telephoto). What that means is that you get a bit more light through the lens to the sensor with the zoom lens, if I understand optics correctly.

Do you need monopod for Nikon 200mm?

As with any zoom lens beyond 150-200mm, you will need a monopod/tripod or have the camera resting on a stationary object to eliminate as much blurring as possible. Depending on your lighting situations, you will see some edge aberrations with high contrasting objects in your shot from time to time with images when you are shooting near or at 200mm.
