I've seen a million posts on this forum about "why isn't such and such lens AF-S yet?" or "I'm going to wait till they release an AF-S version of X lens." Don't get me wrong, AF-S motors made a world of difference on some lenses, especially the big glass that's often used for fast moving work. But why all the noise about some other lenses? Take the 50 f/1.4 for example. Even in the screwdriver configuration, it's a pretty darn quick focuser. Now Nikon has released an AF-S version that weighs twice as much, is twice the size, is half as reliable, and costs twice as much! Where is the "benefit" of such a lens? Even the 80-200 f/2.8 lenses focused extremely fast on modern bodies, probably fast enough for 95% of what people shoot with them. Same with the 85 f/1.4. Pretty fast focuser and a beast as it is. My guess is the AF-S version will not only be larger but cost a bit more too. Personally I'd be happier seeing Nikon put AF-S motors in lenses that deserve them, like the 80-400 VR!!!!
