There's really not very much an end user can do to adjust these lenses. They are precision mechanisms with small, moving parts and optics that all must remain free of dirt, dust and lubricants. Attempting to disassemble the lens could render it inoperable instantly - or down the road due to contaminants from handling.

Bring the camera and lens to a reputable camera shop if one is close by - or contact Nikon Factory Service to arrange for professional evaluation. Most Nikon lenses are protected from failure due to workmanship, etc. for 5 years with a copy of your dated sales slip (or other proof of purchase). If not covered by warranty due to age or handling, you will receive a price for repair and request for authorization for work to be completed. There is no charge for a repair estimate. You can choose not to make the repair and only be out the cost of round-trip shipping.

Good luck!

SOURCE: Tamron 28-300mm Model 185D Auto Zoom on Nikon d40

Autofocus function on the D40 only supports lenses with the
AF-S feature, which have an autofocus motor built into the lens,
instead of using an autofocus motor drive built into the camera.

The Tamron lens you have, does not have a built in motor and
the autofocus function relies on the motor drive in the camera.

It will not work with the D40 or D60, but it will work with other
Nikon digital SLRs, such as the D80. Need to get an AF-S
type lens or upgrade to different Nikon digital SLR. Unless
you do this, you will have to manually focus the Tamron lens.

All of the Nikon DX (for digital) series lenses are also AF-S
type, so they will work with the D40, which is designed as
an entry level digital SLR, therefore it is intended primarily
for use with DX lenses, which are typically sold in a kit with
the D40. Most common one is Nikkor 18-55mm DX AF-S.

Other Nikon AF-S lenses made for film cameras (FX type)
will also work with the D40, but these tend to be expensive
professional models. DX series lenses tend to be more
affordable. You might consider the 18-200mm DX AF-S
as an alternative to the Tamron, but these are not cheap.

The only problem with doing this repair yourself, is that upon re-assembly you will need the Nikon software and hardware to readjust and calibrate the lens. Try sending it to PhotoTech Repair Service in NYC. They are Nikon authorized, and can do the repair under warranty if you still have it. Also if you join they're facebook page, they will give you a 10% discount.

I have a Nikon D3100 and want to buy a zoom lens 70-300.Please help I am confused is a Nikon AF Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4-5.6G compatible? And is it automatic focus?


That lens will work with the D3100, except for the autofocusing. In order to autofocus with the D3100, you need AF-S lenses, such as the AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED or the
AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR.

Hi. Is the Nikon AF Nikkor 20-35mm 1:2.8D made for Nikon's digital cameras? Is it compatible with their whole line or just some? Thanks


No. The lens will work with every Nikon film or digital SLR made in the past three decades or so, though of course the autofocus won't work on older cameras that don't support AF.

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.
