I just bought a Fujifilm X-T1 and was wondering can I use my Nikon lenses on it?

They make adapters, just make sure its for your lenses, I'm not sure if there's a different one for "G" and "D" lenses, for example.....

With the proper adapter, yes. Just be aware that AF won't work, but metering in certain modes should. Many AF lenses are a pain to focus manually as they have very short focus "throws". That is the amount of turns required to go from min to max focus on the lens. On older MF lenses, this distance was greater, allowing for more precise focusing. With the advent of AF lenses, the distance was shortened in order to allow a lens to acquire focus faster. That means any slight bump of the focus ring can throw off a focus setting. Does that camera offer "focus peaking"?. That makes it easier to manually focus a lens.

Best to use native lenses though so as to retain all of the camera's functions.
