Only with entry level bodies, such as the Nikon d3xxx and d5xxx. The older dxx bodies, and most pro, have af drive motors in the bodies.

If you have a body without an internal drive motor, you can still use motorless lenses. You'll just have to focus manually. Probably isn't too big of a deal since corals aren't really mobile.
