    Difference between Nikon F Mount & AFS lens

    Hi,

    Sorry I am bit new to this , I am looking for buying a new NIKON DSLR D5300 but I have come across two different types. One which says lens fitting as F Mount and the other says Nikon AFS. Which one of them I need to go for and what is difference between them.

    Thanks,
    Harry

    Harry,

    If you take your questions to Nikon DSLR/ILC forums you will get a quicker answer.

    Basically all Nikon lenses for the past 50 years are "F-mount". AF-S lenses are F-mount as well, but use a "silent" autofocus motor. i.e. Auto Focus-Silent wave (AF-S), versus older mechanical drive Auto Focus (AF) systems. All will mount fine to any Nikon SLR or DSLR camera.

    Hope this helps.
    D7000, D70, CP990, CP900, FE.
    50mm f/1.8, Sigma 18-125, Sigma 24-70 f/2.8, Nikon 18-105 VR, Nikon 55-200 VR, Nikon 43-86 f/3.5 AiS, Vivitar 28-90 F/2.8-3.5 Macro, Vivitar 75-205 F/3.8-4.8, SB800.
    Ha! See, I can change...
