Hey all - I have an FM and recently bought a Vivitar 100mm - 400mm zoom (Series 1) for about 60 bucks. I tried it at a camera store on an AF body - it worked untill after I'd taken it off and twirled the lens briefly by the focus ring. The sales person said that could damage the "cluch". Now, AF bodies gave a "EE" error message on the read out -- could I have really damaged this lens by a slight twist?

It still seems to work ok as a manual focus...

Are other AF lenses this delicate?

Should I wait to get a AF body before buying another lens?

Thanks for everything,
