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

The above poster is right re: distance info. As for your lens, what is the price? If it were less than $300 I would personally go with the AF version, but for much more than that you are better off with the D. You can find used D's for $350ish normally, and new ones for $450.
