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.
