The primitive \font command will work with Context. In general TeX
primitives and plain TeX/pdftex additional commands will work with
Context, but some are deprecated.

The more elegant/complex/confusing method of getting fonts is by using
typescripts. Typescripts however empower the use of some
Context-specific commands to enlarge or reduce body font size on the
fly by a certain ratio. If this effect is not needed then the \font
command can be used.

I don't use the  AMS extensions so I will inquire.
