Rubber focus ring can be purchased in ebay.
The rubber ring may be attached to the lens with glue. Use denature alchohol between the rubber and lens to remove the rubber ring. It can be stretched little. Once removed, clean any glue on the lens and stretch the new rubber ring and install.

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 auto focus lens not working, only in manual

What camera body? This lens doesn't have an internal focusing motor and thus will not autofocus on the D40/D40x/D60/D5000/D3000.

The focus ring won't turn.


The focus ring on that lense will lock when the AF switch on the lens is on auto. Move the switch to manual and it will release the focus ring.

Hi, just wondering if I should try an dismantle my 85mm 1.8 Nikon lens as the focus ring has slowly but surely stiffened up to the point it will no longer rotate- AT ALL! No budging. My brother tried to...


If you have a lens collimator and other equipment required to ensure the proper alignment of the lens elements when you reassemble the lens, then go for it. If you don't have the gear needed to reassemble the lens properly, then I strongly suggest taking the lens to a good camera shop and have a trained professional do a clean-lube-adjust. It won't do you much good to have a focusing ring that turns if the lens elements are out of alignment so it doesn't focus properly.

How do I get a nikon d80 to use a manual lens


If you mean a manual-focus lens, just focus the lens using the focus ring on it.

If you mean a non-electronic lens, then you need to set the camera to Manual exposure mode. Control the shutter speed by turning the command dial. Control the aperture by turning the aperture ring on the lens. You will get no metering assistance from the camera: you can use another light meter (this includes using a different lens on your camera just to get an exposure reading) or just take pictures and look at the results on the LCD.

Nikon 50mm 1.4d does not focus. I can hear the motor make a noise and if I Help it, it will turn. Also it seems stiff when off the camera and you rotate the focus ring.


Sorry to hear about your nifty 50 lens problems. The auto focus motor might have given out and needs repair. You should be able to focus manually with the lens.

Lens for Nikon D60


I will try to help you, but please understand that my experience is with Nikon film cameras. Assuming that the D60 works in a manner similar to a Nikon 35 mm body and that Sigma macro lens work like Nikon macro lens, you should be able to determine the usable subject to lens distance by experimentation. First, make sure the lens is in the macro mode. To do this you must set the auto-focus mode control to the manual focus mode (see your manual). On Nikon lenses, you must first set the focus ring to infinity, then move slider switch, which has two positions marked; "normal" and "macro., to the macro position. You should now be able to rotate the focus ring to the macro range. Use the zoom ring to zoom in and out and focus with the focus ring. The the range over which the lens to subject to lens distance will yield an in focus image will be rather limited and in the range of an inch or so to 6 or 8 inches.
