I suspect that these lenses do not have AF with manual override. Can you confirm this?

Confirmed by RJL65 in the following post. (Thanks for that RJL)
Thanks for staying with me on this Marco - I think I know where I'm at now.

Yes, indeed, so these two lenses are really not different to the old ones, except for the VR.

I bought these lenses (the non VR versions!) in a double kit with my D50 in 2005.

Shortly afterwards Nikon came to market with the 18-200VR, which I bought in exchange for the other two lenses.
I have never looked back!

In fact, that 18-200VR has what you want/need: AF with manual override...
