Re: AF vs AF-D what are the practical differences?

I believe the distance information is used in metering and especially in flash photography, where distance from the camera can impact flash intensity and exposure.

I don't think you'll see a huge difference, but there are certain scenarios where having a non-D lens would be limiting.
