    Personally I would prefer to see the camera bodies have the motors and the lenses to be made without them. Lenses tend to be kept longer than bodies, but it's one more thing that can malfunction.
    That makes sense. But my current body is motorless ...

    Then you either use AF-S lenses (and/or their third-party equivalents), focus manually or upgrade to a more sophisticated camera body.

    Those are the options.

    I'm OK to do manual focus and would be happy to invest on lens that will last longer than my current body, but I am still confused as to what's what... Are most af-d lens full frame?
    I see full frame lens as a worthy investment...
