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.

This was pretty obvious when going from an 18-55 to a 70-300 VR.
