Modern lenes have computer chips in them to communicate with the body, and
the sensor reading the exposure reflecting off the 'film' plane. It gets
info them the cpu, or gives it some, about the lens opening (a 3.5-5.6 zoom
really does have some variable lens size depending on where the diaphram
moves, how the lens moves as the lenses move through the zoom range) This
info is passed to the flash and the shutter.

If your favorite old lens was chipped then you are good to go, if not, you
will loose some advantages of the new electronics.
