Differences between AF-S and AI-S lenses
Dec 16, 2013

Hi, I was wondering if you could tell me the differences between AF-S and AI-S lenses. What are the better lenses and why? Major differences? Does one lens focus faster than the other? I believe one has a internal motor the other does not, is this a big disadvantage not having a built in motor? If I bought a 400mm 2.8 AF-s and the 400mm 2.8 AI-s lens and put them on my D700 would I notice a difference between them? Any info and advice would be much appreciated thanks!
