Did the only the lens drop or was the lens attached to the camera body? If the lens was attached to the camera, you need to verify that the problem is in fact the lens and not the camera body. The easiest way to do that is to try a different lens on your camera body or your lens on a different body. If you do not have access to either, I would find a local camera store that sells Nikon equipment. I am sure they will let you put your lens on one of there bodies. In any case, ff the damage is as extensive as it sounds from your brief description, you need to take it to a camera repair man. This is not a do-it-yourself job.

Nikon N65 with Nikkor 35~80mm AF lens will not focus or shoot


N65s were notorious for bad shutter release buttons. The metal is thinner than a strand of hair and they break. Search Ebay and see if the part is available to replace (note: Nikon stopped selling parts last year).

My N55 won't let me depress the shutter (to take the shot) when it's on automatic setting. I depress once (half-way) for autofocusing--which seems to work fine. No error message. But then, the N55...


Could be your lens is not communication with the body. If the lens is not telling the camera that the AF has locked on an object then it won't allow the camera to fire. Make sure that the camera is indeed locking the AF on the object. If there isn't enough contrast (for example a plain wall) then it wont be able to lock onto it. This would usually explain why it works on manual but not on auto (I assume you mean the focus setting and not the camera's modes). If you're still having issues I recommend you contact a nearby Nikon authorized service center for assistance and possible repairs. Hope this helps!

Hi, I have an old Nikon F90X with Nikon AF NIKKOR 28-200 mm lens. Can I use this len in othernew Nikon digital camera? Thanks, Tz


Yes. But unless you're using one the the expensive full-frame models the lens will produce images that are magnified by a factor of 1.5. So your 28-200mm lens will behave like a 42-300. Aperture values are unaffected though. On the plus side, the fact that DX sensors only use the middle of the lens image means that the pronounced image pin-cushioning is greatly reduced, and the vignetting (darkened corners) is also reduced.

Both versions of the 28-200 (AF-D and AF-G, click for details courtesy of Ken Rockwell) lack an in-built focus motor, so autofocus only works with Nikon bodies which have an AF motor built in. Not all the digital models have them, but if that's the case with yours then you can still focus manually.

How to adjust nikon lens focus


When you say a shift focus issue, what exactly is the issue? Will it not focus to infinity? Is it never in focus, no matter what? Is it an AF lense that is searching for focus?

Either way, it really requires an experienced tech in all but the last case. There are cases where AF simply doesn't work well. You can have it checked, but its likely nothing.

The other issues, it's likely either a misaligned element, an element that's come uncemented, etc. You may be able to look through the lense and see if you can see any separation in the elements, though sometimes it's not terribly evident.

Unfortunately, often unless it's a simple issue lenses are more expensive to open up and do major repairs to than they are to replace. If you'd really like it looked at, contact Nikon for a service center, a local reputable shop, or contact KEH Camera in Atlanta, GA.

What type of lens works with this Nikon N8008s AF 35mm SLR? Thank you, Larry


Any of the Nikon Auto Focus(AF) lenses should work fine with it. There are also a number of fine aftermarket lenses made for your 8008, by Sigma, Tamron, Tokina, Quantaray and others. Be sure you get the Nikon AF lenses, as they make the same lenses for Sony and Canon. You cannot use the Lenses made for another brand, as they will not fit, work right, and can damage your Nikon.

My Nikon N55 will not auto focus.


Depending on the type of interchangeable lens you have mounted on the camera, there may be a switch on the lens barrel for choosing between auto-focus or manual focus. The N55 also will not auto-focus with the newer Nikon AFS lenses such as those used with the Nikon D40 digital slr. Finally, there was a service bulletin on the N55 back in 2005. Nikon discovered a problem with the auto-focus and fixed it for free, but there may have been a time limit. Here is a link to more info about that:

I can't see through the eyepiece of my new Nikon N65 too well


The lens needs to be an AF model. If pre AF or New digital AF-S then that is the problem.

Nikon AF 35-135 lens-used for both analog and digital cameras


There's no easy DIY fix for this unless you can clearly see what's broken and how to fix it. But the shock of the fall has either dislodged the internal gears or bent/broken one or more internal pins.

The lens will need professional repair; if at the same time it's given a full CLA service (Clean, Lubricate, Adjust) then it will be money well spent as it's still far cheaper than a new replacement lens.

Will not auto focus


"... Autofocus Lock ("AF-L"). Pressing the AF-L (Autofocus Lock) button enables the Nikon F4 to lock the focus. Simultaneous lock of AF-L and AE-L is possible. "'FREEZE FOCUS" - is another great function in the F4. It allows automatic shutter release when subject enters a pre focused distance - available with Nikon MF-23 and/or the 250 exp. MF-24 Multi-Control Back. i.e. with the shutter button fully depressed, the shutter is automatically fired when a subject comes into a preset manually focused position. This function is recommended for sports races because the racing course is usually known beforehand. It also works well in wildlife remote control photography, scientific, forensic and other technical photography. ..."
