Well, my point was in a way more general context, not related to "will it work on the FTZ or not" or "lenses with D in their name won't AF on the FTZ" (some do, of course). What I meant to say is that for most in the community an AF-D lens is a screw-driven lens (and an AF-I, AF-S or AF-P lens obviously is not). Period

If that is the case, I hope this thread and other like it will help to educate the community about what the "D" actually means.

And so are AF lenses without any additional designation. And of course none of them will autofocus on the FTZ.

Just one final point - the confusion caused by this misuse of "D" isn't new. It's been around since Nikon removed the AF motor from their lower-end DSLR cameras.
