Question about Nikon D70s Digital Camera
I have a D70 and when used with the 18-70 lense in auto focus mode it it won't "settle" and oscilates between various distance settings.
I thgnk it may be fault with the lense but it was fine a few days ago ?
When this happens with my D70s, I know of two options. 1) use manual focus or 2) autofocus on another object about the same distance away from my subject (holding the shutter release half way) and then move the camera back to my subject composition. This seems to happen when there is little contrast in the scene, i.e., a field of same colored flowers. Hope this helps.

If a lens has an "A - M" switch, move it to "M" to manually focus. If the switch
- M " then leave on M/A (unless you're going to be taking several or more in manual mode), as these lenses may be focused manually at any time in either position. As soon as you tap
the shutter button in M/A you return to autofocus.
More advanced lenses, like the 18-200mm, 70-300mm VR and 18-135mm, and any lens with an M/A position, may be focused manually at any time without moving any switches. Leave them in their A or A/M positions.
I hope this helps and good luck!
