That is not quite correct. The new cameras use the distance data in 3D MAtrix Metering to help determine the overall exposure even when not using flash, so it is better to get the D version of the 35-70 and that will also guarantee a much newer lens in the series before they stopped making them.

Retirement is a gift of time - Don't waste it!
Old age is a special gift that very few receive. Be thankful if you get it.
