If your lens will physically fit (Nikon for example) then it will almost certainly work but won't provide all the functionality that a lens designed for a digital camera will provide.
I am using a Nikkor 60mm macro designed for a 35mm on my digital and it delivers excellent results.
thankyou for letting me no i have a minolta 75 300 lens witch was dads re gareds christine.
Just to add to what digi has said.
Providing the lens fits the camera body you will possibly need to set aperture and shutter speed via the lens and also focus manually.
PS just took a look at your photos some great work loved "reflections" keep it up
thankyou for your comment and i will try that next time i use it gr geards christine.
