I'm a serious beginner, and one of the things I have the hardest time understanding is the multitude of lens types. I own an N80, a 28-80G, and a 70-300G. I really don't know what the "G" means, but the price was right, and I figured that it was good enough to learn on. Now I am interested in getting a micro lens. Again, price is a major consideration. I've looked on EBay, and there are several 60mm D lenses and one that is not a D lens. The one that is not a D is going for quite a bit less. Why is this? I read something about an extra pin in the mount for the D lenses used for the 3D matrix metering. Does that mean that a non-D lens wouldn't allow me to meter?

The link for the auction is here if you're interested in seeing it.

Thanks in advance!
