Background: I have a Nikkor 70-300 AF-S G. Somehow, the VR and AF systems stopped working.. It was working perfectly fine, then for 2-3 months it stayed inside the bag, in a wardrobe, without even touching it and the next time, I mounted it on my D7000, it just didn't work - no AF, no VR..
I sent it to service and it appeared, that the fix would cost me more, than buying a completely new copy of the lens..
So, as far as I know, the Nikkor 70-300 AF (note: without -S) works fine on bodies with internal motor, for example - with D7000.
That made me wonder why, in MF mode, the 70-300 AF-S does not work with the built-in motor, when the body's mode is AF?
And is there a way my "broken" 70-300 to start working with the internal body's motor?
