    I have the same problem, with the same lens, recently purchased off eBay (no suprise). I have been quoted £92 to fix this by Sigma (including all parts and labour etc) very reasonable. Although will re-sell with auto focus not working correctly. Manual focus works 100%.

If you don't know how to fix it yourself send it to Sigma UK (01707 329999). They are quite resonable charges for that sort of fault. Their website give a price guide depending on lens and fault. Steve

Sigma 170-500mm f.5-5.6. fit on nikon d 200 ??? and i wild like to how good is this one 170-500mm


Sigma makes their lenses with a variety of mounts for a variety of cameras. A lens with a Canon mount, for example, will not fit onto a Nikon camera. Assuming the lens has a Nikon mount, it is fully compatible with the D200.

If you mean the 150-500mm, you can see a review at

In general, Sigma supertelephoto zooms have a pretty good reputation. However, only YOU can decide whether a particular lens is "good enough" for you.

The Nikon D40 does not have an autofocus motor, relying on the lens having one. This Sigma lens does not have such a motor, relying on the camera having one. Nikon designates lenses with an autofocus motor AF-S, Sigma calls theirs HSM.

135-400mm lens on nikon d40


Unfortunately, this lens is not supported by the D40 due to Nikon's unfortunate decision to leave out the autofocus motor from this camera.  This is why I tell folks not to waste their money on the D40 - access to the many, many, many lenses that Nikon has made over the years, many of which are available used for a substantial savings, is lost on this camera.  The only Nikon lenses that work are AF-S lenses, and some third party lenses that have their own internal motors.  I got a list of Sigma lenses that are compatible with the D40 for you:
The list of compatible Sigma lenses for the Nikon D40 as of the current date is as follows:
  • 10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC
  • 12-24mm F4.5-5.6
  • 17-35mm F2.8-4 DG
  • 50-500mm F4-6.3 DG
  • APO 50-150mm F2.8 EX DC HSM
  • 70-200mm F2.8 DG MACRO
  • 80-400mm F4.5-5.6
  • 100-300mm F4 DG
  • 120-300mm F2.8 DG
  • 300-800mm F5.6 DG
  • 14mm F2.8 EX
  • 30mm F1.4 EX DC HSM
  • 150mm F2.8 EX DG
  • 180mm F3.5 EX DG
  • 300mm EX DG
  • 500mm EX DG
  • 800mm f5.6 EX DG

Sorry for the bad news.  The cheaper thing at this point may be to sell the D40 and get a D80.  I personally have a D70S, but that is no longer made.
