Non AF-S lenses that you prefer over AF-S?
Apr 3, 2013

I'm thinking about upgrading from a D5100 to a D7000, largely for the AF motor. I know there are a lot of older, non-AF-S lenses that people say are either great, or at least comparable and less expensive than the closest AF-S counterpart.

What would be an example of a lens that would make it worth the upgrade (either in terms of quality of cost)?
