Mechanical link

between the focus ring and the focus mechanism of old D lenses is the problem. The ring was not designed to give fly-by-wire type of information. Whenever you move the ring, you move the focus mechanism, don't you?

Not sure about the G lenses though, but I assume there is some sort of a physical link too.
