@s So, yesterday I was using my Nikon 50mm F1.8D - a nice prime lens which doesn't have an AutoFocus motor.
Its fine, because my D7100 SLR has an AutoFocus motor in the body.
But shooting in a fairly dark venue yesterday and the focus was doing a lot of hunting, and often failing to get a good focus on poorly lit subjects.
My much more modern 35mm lens was totally fine, as was my 85mm, and those have AutoFocus though.
I might finally try and get a 50mm f1.8G and retire the old one. 📷
@s The 50mm F1.8D suffers from some chromatic aberration sometimes too. It IS a super nice lens, but it's not as good as the new Nikkor primes like my 35mm.
