Any Nikon lens compatible with Nikon's AI meter indexing system will work with the F90X but it is Nikon's extensive selection of AF Nikkor and AI-P Nikkor lenses that offer optimum perfomance. These lenses interface both mechanically and electronically with the F90X, provides a full communication between camera and lens to enhance its performance. Newer D-type AF Nikkor lenses could maximise the full potential of F90X, D-type AF Nikkor lenses send information on lens focusing distance (e.g., distance information) to the camera's computer for inclusion in the computations for advanced Matrix Metering. In flash photography, when a dedicated Nikon Speedlight is used, such as the SB-26, distance infommation also helps realise 3D Multi-Sensor Balanced Fill-Flash. The AF-I and the newer AF-S Nikkor Lenses are D-type AF telephoto lenses with built-in D/C coreless focus-drive motors. Teleconverters such as the AF-I Teleconverters TC-14E and TC-20E* enables a 1.4x increase in the prime lens' effective focal length, while the TC-20E doubles it. and yet retain their full functionalities.
*Autofousing is possible only with an AF-I Nilkor lens having a maximum aperture of f2.8 or faster.
