Hi
I am building up my Nikon kit, having been up till now using Canon cameras.
One of the intriguing features I have encountered is the fact that my D800 can operate screw drive type lenses.
I am minded to pick up a couple of second-hand older screw drive lenses to try out the feature and use them until I decide to spend rather more money on the expensive zooms etc.
My question is, in general, will second-hand screw drive lenses operate well or does the screw slot get worn through long-term use and the auto-focus become sloppy?
