When shooting video with a DSLR, the AF-P lens uses a ‘Pulse’ motor or ‘Stepping’ motor, which is quieter and smoother to use than the ‘S’ motor.
Whats the difference between AF and AF-S?
The original AF system works well and allows for smaller and lighter lens sizes, but in 1998 Nikon introduced a new mode called the AF-S. The focus motor for the AF-S lenses is built into them. They call it ‘silent wave”, because they use Ultrasonic motors. This type of motor is named after the makers of third party AF-S compatible lenses. Each company has a different name for what is called virtual reality, which is a method of counteracting camera movement by moving a lens element in real time.
What does AF-S stand for?
If you want to photograph subjects that don’t move, you can use the single area mode.
What does AF-S on Nikon lens mean?
The lens can automatically focus through the camera if it’s referred to as an ‘F” The auto focus with distance information is called the AF-D. The distance between the subject and the lens can be reported to the camera by it. It is possible to use the distance information for metering.
What is the difference between AF and AF-S Nikon lenses?
There is a silent wave motor that can be used to focus on the subject. The older lens that works in the manual mode is referred to as the AF. Fast and silent autofocus can be achieved with the AF-S lens on all digital cameras.
What are AF-S and AF-P lenses?
All autofocus capable cameras should work with the silent wave focusing system, as it’s universal. The D7100/D7200 is the only camera that provides camera body powered focusing, which is required for the AF-P.
What is the difference between a Nikon AF-S and a AF D lens?
The new Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G AF-S lens is compared against the older Nikkor 50mm f/1.4D. The new 50mm f/1.4G has some attractive features, such as Silent Wave Motor (SWM), that are important for those who can’t drive the older ones.
