Re: Correction

There are exceptions to this: the main one is that if you connect lenses via an adapter, they may well not autofocus, and there are also some specialist lenses which are manual focus only, but they are very much the exception rather than the rule. Anything you purchase as a "kit" will autofocus." End quote.

I was reacting to his  over simplification. The fact is, Any lens will not focus on any camera. He then goes on to say there  are exceptions any and that all kit lenses that come with the camera will auto focus. ( I should have credited Kendall with that statement).
