Re: nikon d50 and lens

I don't have this kind of camera myself, but on my Canon D350 there is a switch on the lens that sets manual/automatic focus. Mine is marked MF/AF ans is just a simple switch. Check to see if this might be the case on yours, too. Also check the contactts on the lens and camera to see if they might be dirty. And be very careful not to get any dust into your camera housing! -Chris
