    What is the difference between the G and the D series? IIRC D is the one that uses the 'screw autofocusing'?

    the difference between lenses with and w/o the AF motor is AF-S and AF notation, respectively.

    D lenses have aperture ring.
    G lenses don't.

    from what u mention, a more practical set up is will
    be 11-16, 17-50 & 55-300? and if I wanted a nice
    thin dof, I will just get the prime of the appropriate
    focal length?

    If you need F2.8 tele, consider the Sigma 50-150/2.8 or if no choice the 70-200/2.8

    But for thin DoF work, bro ZCA got it right. Start with 50/1.8, 35/1.8 and 85/1.8
    hmm why dun u consider 28-300?
    and since it is a FX lens it will give u abt 42-450mm on DX.
    i am not sure how does the quality comparing both.

    O just the aperture ring? Does having the aperture ring affect the lens quality/ image quality from lens? Whats the diff if the aperture ring is there or not?

    no diff la... for all the Nikon DSLRs, aperture is controlled via the electronics. Even if D lens (eg. AF 50mm f/1.8D), you gotta lock it at one position.

    But I would assume that transition from D lens to G lens involves more than just removal of the aperture ring. Probably newer lens construction, better coating etc.

    I'm not a fan of "super-zoom" lenses for DSLRs, coz to me, the main point about using a DSLR is to have the best lens possible for the situation. Hence I've gone the 'prime' route, and will stick to it.
    You won't find me carrying an 18-200, for example.

    But for a DX camera, 18-200 is the most versatile range. 28 is like neither here nor there for the wide end of a zoom lens. 300 is probably more than enough.

    D lenses have aperture ring.
    G lenses don't.
    The new 1.4G lenses all comes with rounded aperture blades.

    And the 24/1.4G, the 35/1.4G and 85/1.4G all comes with the new nano coating.

    IQ is much better, and optimized for digital cams (FX and DX). sharper too.

    But for a non-pixel peeper, the differences in IQ is not significant. And for non-pixel peeping portrait shooters, edge sharpness and light fall-off is not as critical... Sometimes, when shooting portraits, you don't want too sharp also.

    But Whitefileds wants thin DoF and fast apertures... something the 28-300 is not suited for. But seriously speaking the 28-300 IQ is quite good, just that max aperture is not big.

    true, but going the prime route is soooooo damaging to the pocket. haha
    for the 28-300 i am actually looking at to shoot street candid, "wild" sg animal and maybe once in a while moon shot

    ah, my bad. didnt really understand his need.

    then he have to go full prime le. most zoom lens only go up to f2.8 so anything more have to be f2,f1.8,f1.4 or even the f1.2.

    f/1.8 primes still not so terrible in terms of pricing.
    My 'budget trinity' 35,50,85 f/1.8 primes cost me MUCH less than 1K.


    btw what is "wild sg animal" har?
