Long lens won't focus when zoomed out


I trust you are looking at something with sharp contrast, like a light pole. Lens can't focus without something crisp to see. If other lens work fine, than this lens need a trip to a lens repair shop. I use KEH Photo. Honest, reliable and cheaper and faster than Nikon. A visit to your local camera store might be in order, but if they send it in for repair for you, it will cost more.

I can't get the lens to focus at all on any close up setting manual or auto. I have been trying to take pictures of flowers and insects with it set to close up and I have tried also with it on manual...


The 70-300mm lens won't focus closer than about 5 feet (1.5 meters). If you need to get closer, there are several alternatives. Here are some in descending order of cost (and picture quality).

A special "macro" or "micro" lens. Some lenses are designed to focus closer than others.

Extension tubes. These are tubes that fit between the lens and the camera body. By putting more distance between the camera and the lens, the focus point moves closer to the camera.

Close-up lenses. These are like filters in that they screw onto the front of the lens, but act like a magnifying glass.

I have just recived a quantaray 70-300mm f4-5.6 lense for nikon mount, and have mounted it on my Nikon d-40. I can take nice pictures using manual focus but, can not seem to turn it to auto focus. Any...


As far as I can tell, this lens does not have the focusing motor and thus will not autofocus on the D40.

The macro functions should work fine, though of course you'll have to focus manually.

Using auto focus 35-55 mm lens on d40x will not take picture but if I use manual focus, I can take picture.


It is because the lense is only an AF lense. The d40x doesn't have an on-body auto focus motor so that needs to be on the lense. I have a d60 and have the same problems. You can use the manual focus on the AF lenses; however, to use auto focus, you need to buy an AF-S lense. It's disappointing I know, but that's the price we must pay for saving on our body lol

Auto Focus Problem


The lens is supposed to do that. If you take the picture before the lens has focused....your picture will be out of focus.

Sigma 28-300 3.5-6.3 won't focus


Did it ever work on this camera?
I have seen some Sigma lenses that are auto focus on canon film cameras but then when put on the digital they dont work right. If you have used it on this camera then make sure the lens is clean.sometimes dirt on the front wil make it try focusing on the dirt. Next try focusing in manual focus to make sure the focus is working. Then take the lens off and then put it back on and make sure it clicks into place.

Let me know if none of those things work. also make sure to try focus on something close and somthing far away.

let me know how it works,

All 4/3 cameras have a sensor that is 2X smaller compared to 35 SLR(24X36).

Buy any lenses and time two when reading the lens. ie: 35mm X 2 = 70mm; 150mm X 2 = 300mm

Any lenses that are over 35mm marked on the lenses.
