Re: Odd statement from Nikon

I'd like to hear that explained. Right now my best guess is that there may be two or three unrelated things mashed up there.

Me, three!  I also am really curious to get more details.  But the takeaway for me was that AF algorithms can be tailored for specific lenses to maximize performance - a statement I’ve never heard Nikon make in the past with DSLR AF-S lenses.  Nikon also claims that the new multi-focus system has the power to move large, heavy lens elements around more rapidly and accurately - something that should be of interest to birders using large/long exotic lenses.
