I was referring to AF-D lenses not f/4 D lenses.

If there are AF-D lenses that have internal motors, I guess I have come across any yet.

I guess I assumed the op was talking about an AF-D lens. My bad.

What you have discovered is that the AF-D nomenclature is misleading. The 300/4 D is just as much a D lens as all the other D lenses, and there is more than a dozen D lenses that do have internal AF motors. The relevant categories are AF, AF-I, AF-S, AF-P, not "D or not D".

Is there a list of the D designation lenses with internal motors somewhere ?

Anyway the original posters' lens does not appear to be one of them, does it ?


From OP's gear list , it is this lens ( without internal focus motor ! ) : Nikon AF Nikkor 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5D IF ED Specs: Digital Photography Review (dpreview.com)

There is another 18-35 mm lens with internal focus motor : Nikon AF-S Nikkor 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED Specs: Digital Photography Review (dpreview.com)

If OP is correct that his lens did autofocus before the firmware update of the FT adapter , it is the AF-S 18-35 mm lens.
