Question about Nikon Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G IF-ED AF-S DX VR Zoom Lens

1 Answer

Manual Focus won't work

I bought a Nikon Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G IF-ED AF-S DX VR lens in June, 2008 and just the other day (Feb 3, 2009) noticed that the manual focus does not work. The lens focuses fine on auto but when I switch it to manual the focusing ring won't move. I noticed that the plastic switch cover for auto/manual and VR on/off seemed loose and the switch for auto/manual didn't seem to move correctly. I dont know if I just need to unscrew the cover or what. I am on vacation in Coasta Rica until Feb10, 2009 and need help fast! Please help me!!!

Which camera are you using? If the body has AF/MF switch, put that also to MF.If this fails to help, take out the lens and try to change it to MF.

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.

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!
