Just have 2 questions:

- will 3rd party lenses be compatible with af-d system?

- are they all compatible with it?

Obviously Sony is not going to to the programming for 3rd party lenses, as that would mean time and money for programming to encourage you to buy 3rd party lenses instead of the Sony equivalents.

Rumour has it that not even Minolta lenses will work with AF-D. I have the Konica/Minolta 100mm f/2.8 macro which is essentially identical to the current Sony. With next week's firmware upgrade, the programming for the Sony will be there. There's only a small chance that it will also work with my identical (but different badge) lens. I'll be hoping

Hope dies last. Would be nice but usually Sony isn't that nice.
