D810 Lens compatibility

This a comment for this page on the website
Hi Guys,
I have just purchased the Nikon 24-70 AF-S 2.8 G lens.
Am I correct to assume that this will work properly on both the D750 and D810?
I also have an older 80-200 2.8 AF-D which, when coupled with my D700 is sharp to the T.
I recently tried it on a DX cam (D3300) and much to my surprise would not perform auto focus.
I am about to purchase the D810 or D750 and before doing so, wanted to get your experience about this lens/ camera compatibility.  Thanks in advance.

The auto focus deal is simply that either your camera body or the lens (or both) must have an AF motor for it to work.  The AF-D does not have a motor, and neither does the D3300 so without a motor in either there's no AF possible.
If you got your D810 you'll be good to go with almost anything even fairly recent.  I use the 50mm and 85mm G lenses and they work perfectly on the D810.
Actually beyond perfect.  They're amazing.
