Question about Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED-IF AF-S VR DX Nikkor Lens
Is it my imagination or is my lens zooming in (or out) all by itself. I take a picture lets say at 50 mm and then all of a sudden I look at my camera and my lens is at 200 mm. Is this normal? Has never happened before and i have had my camera for 2 years. Thanks
It is not normal. Something may have loosened up internally. Set the lens to 50mm and then move the camera between pointing lens forward and lens down toward the floor as the camera might rest when you have it on a neck strap and bend over. I am guessing that gravity is pulling the lens out to the 200mm position. In any case, you should have a camera repair man look at it. I do not know what the repair could cost, but you have a superb lens and, if necessary, you may want to spend the money to fix it.
