I might be wrong but I think all AFD lens are metal bodies.

Although the right synthetic material might be better than metal, where I might be worried are where there are threads, how ever metal threads do wear out too.

Wrong. My small collection of AFD lenses, 35 f2, 50 f1.8 and 85 f1.8 all have plastic outer barrels.
