    Can anyone help me as iam rather unclear on this topic i bought a 50mm af nikon lens with my new d7000 and i am confused by what the manual says ! It says for afs lens all you have to do is set the camera to manual focus but for af lens you need to set camera and lens but i dont/cannot see and mf selector on the lens. What worries me is that it states in the manual that you can damage the camera if the settings are not in synche.

    I am guessing that your 50mm AF (D?) is an older lens which is driven by the D7000's internal focus motor, whereas AFS lenses have their own built in focus motor. The M/A switch on the AFS lens is essentially an on / off switch, but you can override it with just the focus ring. With your 50mm, just switch the body lever to M and you should be able to manually focus as required. R.T.F.M. Page 99!Wink
