Vibration Reduction not working

I have the lens about 4 months and was not too impressed with it until I seen VR working on a friends camera. Now I realise mine was not working from the start. It is on a Nikon D80 and the unit is turned on.

    Camera still takes fuzzy photos even when vr is on.

    Lens settings - M/A, VR On, Normal (not Active) -- when you press the shutter release halfway and it focuses, you should hear a tick from the lens as VR engages and you may even hear the little gyros spinning. Do you hear this? At 200mm it's pretty obvious when VR engages because all the little jumpies stop.

This feature is not an "end-all" to using a tripod for those razor sharp images. The VR may buy you one or two stops of light max. This may be enough in a pinch but invest in a tripod (a good one) for razor sharpness!

A home hatchet job on the lens NOT A HOPE yet as no one desperate enough yet to wreck their lens in the attempt

Cracked lens


The whole lens housing will need to be replaced, if you have additional damage I recommend estimate because you will probably further ahead buying a new camera.

I have a nikon 5100. The lenses have a on/off button and two others. How and when do I use them?


This is the 18-55mm lens? That lens only has a "A-M" switch to go between auto and manual focus. Some lenses have an on/off switch for the Vibration Reduction (VR) feature, and some of them have another switch to turn on/off active VR.

Vibration Reduction compensates for camera movement. This lets you hand-hold the camera at slower shutter speeds. Active VR allows camera movement in one direction while compensating for movement in other directions, allowing for panning.

I'm looking to buy a Nikon F65 35mm film AF SLR Camera and I was unsure if you can use the lens from a Digital SLR?


Yes, as long as it's not a DX lens. DX lenses are designed for the smaller image area of some digital cameras and will cause vignetting (dark corners) on a 35mm camera. The vibration reduction feature of VR lenses won't work, but won't cause any problems.

DX lenses will fit and work, but as mentioned above, you will get dark corners.

Nikon Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED IF AF-S DX VR Vs. Nikon Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED IF AF-S DX are they the same len or not? thanks, Ricky at rpotter@eatel.net


No. The VR lens has 15 elements in 11 groups, the other has 13 elements in 9 groups. This indicates that the two lenses have different optical designs. The main difference, however, is that the VR indicates "vibration reduction." This lens has motion sensors and tiny motors that move the lens elements to compensate for camera motion, producing clearer pictures when hand-holding the camera.

On a new Nikon 18-55mm AF-S DX Zoom - Nikkor f/3.5-5.6 lens and a Nikon 55-200 mm AF-S DX Zoom f/4.56 lens is VR also included and standard?


Nikon currently lists two 18-55 AF-S DX and two 55-200 AF-S DX lenses. One in each pair has vibration reduction, the other does not. The ones with VR in the name have it, otherwise it doesn't.

VR isn't exactly an option. If it wasn't built into the lens initially, you can't add it later. A lens either has it or it doesn't, though if a lens has VR it can be switched off.

They both will work with the D70s. One has a longer zoom range, the other has Vibration Reduction. The decision is yours. Do you want the range or the VR? How much money do you want to spend?

I want to use fairly telephoto lens in D3 slr nikon camera


You don't say what sort of telephoto you want to buy or how much money you want to spend but basically anything longer than a 50 mm is regarded as telephoto.
A staring point for you maybe the lens listed below: Nikon Telephoto Zoom 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED AF-S VR
It importantly has VR or "Vibration Reduction" on it to reduce camera blur when hand holding telephoto shots. This is just a staring point... You need to work out what you want to photograph Cheers Ian
