Auto focus does not work

    What camera body are you using?

    Have you tried another lens on your camera body to confirm that the problem is in the lens and not the camera body?

    Assuming the problem is the lens, try cleaning the electrical contacts by rubbing a pencil eraser across the contacts while holding the lens in a position that will ensure that any rubber falls downward away from the lens.

Lock it at f/32. Autofocus lenses have a lock for smallest aperture (highest number) because that is wht the camera body expects. The lock won't engage at any other position.

SOURCE: Auto focus at full zoom not responding Nikon D80 with 18-200mm VR

Hi - I own this lens and it manually focuses at all focal lengths (hard to see at 18mm unless your subject is extremly close). You may need to get the lens checked. BTW - Mine was set as follows when I checked for you:

  • D80 was "on"
  • M/A
  • VR = Off
  • Normal (not Active)
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Nikon DX AF- S Nikkor 18-55 mm lens won't Auto focus

Is the switch on the side of the lens set to manual or auto? Sometimes it's the little things like this that we don't notice.

Check to make sure the manual focus/auto focus switch on the lens is set to A. Make sure the lens is completely mounted to the camera and locks securely. If this does not help, or if the lens was dropped, then you should consider buying a new lens. the cost of fixing the old lens may be at least half of the cost of buying a new one.

Nikon Nikkor 50mm F/1.4 D SIC AF will not auto focus anymore after drop


Hi Bob.
This lens does´nt have an internal focus motor, this only works with an in-camera focus motor. So, if it is stuck after drop, there is a bend over the focus barrel. This means the manual focus will not work neither. If manual focus works normally, there an electronic problem at the PCB (broken element).

Will the Quanta 28-200 for the Nikon n75 work on the Nikon D5000?


Yes and no. I assume the lens is of more or less the same vintage as the N75? If so, the lens will fit onto the D5000. All of the camera's exposure and metering modes will work properly. However the lens lacks an interal focus motor and thus will not autofocus on the D5000. You can focus manually, and the green focus indicator in the viewfinder will continue to work.

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.
