You can't do it yourself. You will only do additional damage and add to the cost of repair. You need special training and expensive specialized equipment to repair and align a lens. I suggest that you go on the Nikon USA website and find the closest Nikon Repair Depot. They will give you a repair estimate.

SOURCE: Dear expert have following problem, by puting

Check to make sure the lens is attached properly. Remove the lens by rotating it clockwise. Reattach the lens by aligning up the mounting indexes (white dots) and turning counter-clockwise until you hear a click.
Also, try increasing your aperture value to more than f/22

How to repair or unstick Sigma K zoom 100-200mm macro - tele focus stuck at infinity


Remove the lens from the camera, set MF on the lens, try gently to free it by hand. If this works, clean the contacts on the lens and camera body - if not, it needs repair.

Why does focus ring hit some type of stop?


Hi.
There is a problem inside your lens. It can be a flexible PCB (printed circuit board) or screw out of possition, so the focus moving parts can´t complete the range.
If the infinity focus gets at 3ft, there are also some optical group loose. That is the reason infinity position is located closer than it must be.
Send it to a Sigma Service.

Focus stack if you rotating it from infinity to 1.5m at ~6m and did not go to 1.5m it's only can be used in this range


Some zoom lenses have a focus lockout at certain zoom ranges. I'd be highly doubtful it'd be at 6m, but that's just a thought. For example, they may not be able to focus below 2m at the 100mm setting, so the focus locks out at that point at that setting.

I'd be looking for a shop, or contacting Nikon for a service center to take a look at it, and certainly don't try to force it less you risk doing further damage. Lens repairs can be tricky, so if it's a newer lens I'd leave it up to a Nikon center unless you've got a shop you've used before and trust.

Has the lens been dropped, bumped, damp, wet, in humid conditions, hot (over 90 or so F prolonged), extremely cold prolonged, in corrosive environments (acid or seawater nearby), etc?

When you depress the shutter button halfway, you are (in fact) activating the focus mechanism.
If in AF mode, you should hear the 'beep' when focus is achieved.
However, bear in mind that the XSi has three focussing modes: Quick mode, Live View, and Manual. There is a difference in how focussing is achieved between the Quick and Live View modes. (see page 102 onwards of the user manual "using AF to focus").
Also, the barrel of the lens will move during the focus operation.
If this does not happen, then there is a definate problem.
Having images in focus despite having no movement on the lens, simply means that the aperture settings are probably small enough to give sufficient depth of field to include your subject.

Autu focus


Best thing you can do is focus manually, using the little green dot in the bottom left hand corner of the viewfinder for assistance.
The 'lag' is due to the camera deciding the focus point, passing it to the motor in the lens, by which time the subject hs moved and so it tries to fix again by moving through the range.

Its annoying, but focusing manually, although not a solution per se, is the only option.
Sorry mate.

Unsure of how to use the extra functionality


That is the focusing ring. I'm guessing your camera is set to focus automatically (Little switch on the side of the lens should have settings for either AF or MF, or something similar.)

If its on AF, you don't need to adjust the focus ring.
However, if you have problems with the AF (sometimes it has trouble, especially in low light) you can switch it to MF, and focus manually by changing the ring.

As a general guideline, the more you twist to towards macro, it focuses closer and closer, and infinity futher away (if you're taking a shot of the moon, you want it on infinity)
