You also have it wrong - D lenses meerly impart distance information to the camera - nothing remotely to do with its AF capacity.

What you mean is the D50 can autofocus on non AFS lenses. Standard AF lenses can be D or non D depending on their age. The D50 has the AF module in the body so has the screwdriver prong in the lens mount. This allows it to AF with ALL autofocus lenses (aprt from the specialist ones made for the F3AF)

I have happily used a 20mm AF (non D) lens on my D50 in all modes including AF...

D3X + 20mm f2.8 AFD + 105mm f2.8 AFD + 300mm f4 AFS

Hunger pays a heavy price to the shining Gods of speed and steel
