Question about Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens
I have recently purchased a Sigma 70-300mm lens for my Nikon D60 for bird photography and it has been problem free for a couple of weeks. However, recently, it has been malfunctioning when I have tried to focus using autofocus. It makes small clicking noises as if it is stuck and after about 5 or 6 times of pressing down the shutter button half way, it will not focus anymore and it is like the lens shuts down. However, when I autofocus at 70mm, the focusing is fine and the camera makes the normal focusing noise that it should.
I tried autofocus with my 18-55mm Nikkor VR kit lens at 55mm and the focusing is fine. I think I have come to the solution that the focusing gets worse as I zoom in more.
Could someone please help me and tell me what the problem is and if it can be fixed.
If you just purchased the lens I would take it back sounds like the lens is jarred and defective should still be on warranty
