    I used to frequent nikon singapore as well. they have some nicely written articles and i read a few of them before i bought my camera. Maybe the propaganda worked

    Check out their service and support -> knowledge database & download
    under lenses section do a search

    The singapore site links back to nikonasia knowledge database
    Lens terminology ( nice layout and illustrations )
    AIS AI ( again very informative )

    OT a bit:

    In the English language, there is only one alphabet, which is a set that comprises 26 letters.
