Work the lens by hand to see if it moves manually freely. visually check the electrical contact for dirt or discoloration. Clean contacts with eraser on lens and camera. If its circuit overheating on the camera, you need professional help.

SOURCE: auto focus on my SLR doesn't work

I have this same lens and it focuses at all focal lengths and with all settings except :"manual." Be sure that the setting switch on the lens itself is not set to "M" (manual).

Make sure your AF-switch on your camera and your lens are both turned on.

The camera relies on detecting differences in contrast to perform the auto focus function. If there are only subtle differences in contrast (like those found in poorly lit subjects), the lens will "hunt" and fail to focus as expected.

The camera has a small lamp used to help the focus system by shining on the subject. Make sure it is enabled or otherwise not blocked or non-fuctioning. You could add more light, or switch to manual focus. Disable the the auto focus system either in the camera menu - or on the lens barrel itself - if equipped. . The former will let you switch back and forth the fastest - but if your lens lacks such a switch, you'll have to do it in the camera menu instead.

You can download your manual here to review it.

I hope this helps!

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.

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.

My Nikon 17-35 F2.8 zoom won't Auto focus or show F stop


The F/stop isn't supposed to change when you focus. Depending on the camera, you change the f/stop by either turning the aperture ring on the lens or turning a command dial on the camera body.

How to achieve full zoom with a Nikon 55-200mmf/4-5.6G ED lens?!


1) What camera body are you using?

2) I do not understand your assertion that it automatically zoomed in. Zooming is a manual function. The automatic functions of your lens pertain only to focusing on of the subject so that your picture is sharp and ensuring that the correct amount of light is admitted so that you have a correct exposure.

3) Are you sure you were turning the zoom ring and not the f-stop ring? The zoom ring is labeled 200 on one end of the scale and 55 on the other. It is also the widest ring on the lens barrel. When you rotate it, the physical length of the lens will lengthen as you rotate it clockwise (viewed from behind the camera) and shorten as you rotate it counter-clockwise.

4) For reference, at 200mm the angle of view on your lens should be 10 degrees and at 55mm about 40 degrees.
