This is patently false information. They do not use "micro motors with plastic gears." They are ring motors using ultrasonic waves that convert to rotational energy to move the elements. There is no micro motor and no gear system in the 24/35/85 AF-S 1.4 G lenses. Take one apart and you will see for yourself.

I would recommend you to check the facts before presenting your presumptions to the public. Obviously YOU didnt take them apart to check lol.

I dont think they use plastic gears, but I can assure you there are no ring motors in any of those lenses you listed. As opposed to the Canon L lenses by the way.
