Is it actually true that the AF motors on the pro bodies are too strong for the lower-priced third party lenses and might wreck them? I've heard this, but I think it was more sarcasm or even toungue-in-cheek Nikkor elitest snobbery than anything. Has anyone actually ruined lenses in this way? Sigma 18-50mm DC (the slow apertured 5.6 one) for instance.
