Dimiter,
AF-D lenses calculates the distance from the camera to the subject. This feature is useful where distance is a factor in calculating proper exposure, e.g. flash photography. If you don't do a lot of this type of photography, you can get by with a non-D version of any lens.

Here is a link to the Nikkor lens glossary. It will explain most of the Nikkor lens features.

Hope this hekps...JL
