That from reports the G lenses are usually optically slightly better than the D's..

That's to be expected, since the G lenses are newer and lenses are getting better all the time.

I would rather have the D7000 do the focusing.. and put the cost of the lens motor into the optics.. many of the D lenses focus faster than the G's.


Just for the record, "D" means the lens transmits distance info to the camera, and "G" is essentially a D lens that doesn't have an aperture ring. It's the AF-S designation that indicates that the lens has a built-in motor.
