Lenses for use with Nikon digital SLR cameras
For more information on lens compatibility see the Nikon support pages, information on Nikon lens technology can be found here.
The information in the Optical data section applies to the use of the lens with regular 35mm SLR cameras. For digital SLR cameras the View Angle and the 35mm Focal Length equivalent can be found with the help of this calculator  

Always consult your local Nikon customer service center about the compatibility of particular lenses with digital SLR cameras!

As the perceived focal length and the angle of view varies for digital cameras, the zoom lens classification is (arbitrary) done based on the mid-point of the 35mm focus specifications of the lens, i.e. wide angle lenses below 45, standard lenses from 45 to 90, and telephoto lenses above 90.
