In researching a prime 85mm lens, I came across the f1.8D. I tried to find out a bit about "rear focus" feature but what I dug up had little to do with what Nikon are promoting. It's supposed to enable fast AF operation which may be ironic as "rear focus" apparently relates to the inaccuracy of AF systems. Hmmm. Any ideas please?
(Thanks in advance!)
