nikon lens- to G or not to G?

AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G for $484 AF NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4D for $369

is the G worth 100$ more?

also, i imagine that the G is somehow better to warrant the additional cost. can anyone explain how?

(this will be my 2nd lens to my nikon d7000 kit lens.)

The G actually makes it cheaper, the AF-S makes it more expensive.

can i get a nikon lens with G but not AF-S? –  kacalapy Dec 30 '10 at 17:44
Not in a prime ~ the only one they make that is both AF (not AF-S) and G is the 27-300mm f/4 nikonusa.com/Nikon-Products/Product/Camera-Lenses/1928/… Here is a link to ALL Nikkor lenses: nikonusa.com/Nikon-Products/Camera-Lenses/index.page –  Sarah Haren Dec 30 '10 at 18:50
