    as from what i had read from various websites... Nikon used to put gold ring on IF-ED lenses only... but nowadays seems like the Gold Ring definition is a little bit blurred... e.g. 14-24mm and 24-70mm are not having real IF design but still having the gold rings...
    G lenses are cheaper to make mah.

    Actually I would think Canon marketing did a pretty good job with this L thinggy. Issin it wat they want. ( not necessary what we want .. or dun we )

    Nikon has their quality pro lenses too. Just that it might not be so immediately differentiated for the uninitiated

    Actually..... ALL of the DX lenses that Nikon makes are AF-S and G... well, that's from the Nikon website line-up of lenses, which I believe to be definitive.
    Makes sense.
    If it's DX, it's for a DSLR, which definitely has aperture control.
    Interesting to note that all of them are AF-S too, which seems to indicate the direction that Nikon is taking.
    Exploring! :)

    Is it so tough to read and comprehend this?

    Go too crazy with model names, people might not buy it. It is called product line differentiation confusion. The numbers actually help to reinforce the line up, giving people the sense of the different segments each model is targeted at.

I think for the amount to pay for this lens i can buy a small car already ba hahahahaha anyway for Nikon i trust the old Japan made ones compared to the newer ones which are made in china and thailand. I have this old 80-200mm which cost me like only 65 bucks 2nd hand and it's sharper then most of the newer lens i have. Best buy i ever made siah kekekeke
