I'm considering buying a non D lens but will shoot matrix metering and flash with it almost 100% of the time.

Is this a bad idea?

I have compared the 80-200/2.8 AF non-D vs the D version, with and without flash, with various subjects. I literally saw 0 difference in focus accuracy  (other than the D being a little faster thanks to a slight mechanical update), metering, and flash exposure. Don't worry about going with non-D lenses.
