Nikon Lens Codes Could someone let me know what the 'G' following the f-stop (as here, 'f/2.8G') indicates? And what about the 'S' after the auto-focus desigation (as here, 'AF-S')? I get the idea that both stand for desirable things, but I don't know what they are.

Thanks.

The 'G' means that there is no aperture ring on the lens and this needs to be set from within the camera. The 'S' signifies that this lens has a Silent Wave Motor. This is the internal focusing motor which enables a fast focus time.
