While the G lenses are the still the same physical F mount, the G indicator means there is no aperture dial on the lens itself. So while the G lenses will physically fit the standard F mount cameras and adapters, there is no way at all to change the f-stop on the lens..
Which is better AF-S or AF P?
AF-P lenses use a “Pulse” motor or “Stepping” autofocus motor and are even quieter and smoother to autofocus than an AF-S lens, making these lenses ideal when shooting video with a DSLR. The DSLR camera bodies that do feature a focus motor can utilize AF and AF-S lenses.
What does AF-P stand for?
The AF-P designation means that a lens uses a pulse motor, hence the “P.” The pulse motor relies on stepping motors to move elements inside the lens to achieve focus. This is in contrast to AF-S lenses, which use Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM) and rely on rotational energy to focus a lens’s optics.
What is the difference between VR and ED lens?
In theory they are the same. The only difference is the VR lenses are for better clarity in pictures. Kind of like an HD tv and a 4K tv.
What is the difference between an AF lens and an AF-S lens?
There are two types of Nikon lenses: AF (auto focus) and AF-S (auto focus with silent wave motor). AF are generally the older lenses that will only work in the manual mode. AF-S lenses work on all Nikon digital cameras, and have a fast and silent autofocus.
What does Ed stand for in camera lens?
“ED means extra-low dispersion glass—it’s an optical glass Nikon developed for correction of chromatic aberrations.
What AF mode should I use?
If you’re working with a static subject, then Single-Point AF area mode is best. Any time there’s motion within the frame, use Dynamic AF Area Mode to select your first focus point and allow the camera tracking to take over!
What does C mean on camera?

What is an AIS lens? Auto Indexing (AI) and AI-S lenses
In 1977, Nikon came up with a new way to couple the aperture ring to the camera’s light meter: Auto Indexing or AI. AI lenses have a ridge that catches a feeler on a ring surrounding the lens mount on the camera. (Mounting a non-AI lens may bend or break the feeler.)

Is film photography coming back? Yes, there is increasing usage of film in photography. Today, the old film cameras of a bygone era are more expensive than some of the full-frame DSLR cameras. As more folks buy up available cameras, the prices have steadily gone up for some camera models by 25-50% year-over-year.
Do any manufacturers still make film cameras? Yes, it’s true. Believe it or not, there are still a few in-production film cameras available, brand new, today. And looking beyond the brand new, there is, of course, an active used market for photographers looking to dip their toes into the film photography world.
What does D mean in lenses?

What does AF-S and AF-P mean?
AF-S is universal, as it refers to the silent wave focusing system, and should work with all autofocus capable cameras. AF-P requires a camera which provides camera body powered focusing, which is only in the higher end Nikons, like the D7100/D7200.
Are VR lenses worth it?
Yes. It works and it works great when it is needed. Typically you will only find VR or image stabilization as an available option on zoom or macro models. The reason why is simply most fixed focal length prime lenses has a wide enough aperture (1.8, 1.4, 1.2), that VR or image stabilization wouldn’t be needed.
Does VR affect image quality? VR doesn’t reduce the image sharpness, it just reduces the effect of very high shutter speeds. An image with VR at 1/500s will have the same sharpness as an image at 1/4000s with VR, but an image at 1/4000s without VR will be sharper (slightly, and the shutter speeds are just exampes).
