The green mark is the index for the aperture setting at 24mm, the yellow mark is the index at 50mm. These really only matter if you are setting the exposure manually and using an external meter. The green mark is the primary mark -- as you turn the ring you will notice that it lines up with a number at every clickstop, while the yellow one is a bit off.

The pull down lever you ask about is the aperture lock. Autofocus film cameras and all digital cameras expect the lens to be set at smallest aperture (highest number). They will give an FEE error if it is not set correctly. When you turn the aperture ring to smallest aperture you will be able to slide the white dot into position next to the orange mark, and that will lock the aperture ring so that it is not accidentally tgurned while using or changing the lens.

Sticky zoom ring on a Nikkor 18-55 AF-S Zoom. The zoom gets jerky at the 18-24 mark. I think it needs some lube but I don't know where to put it?


You would have to disassemble the lens barrel to get to the zoom sliders, and lubrication is not likely the problem anyway. The zoom mechanism uses nylon bushings sliding in a groove, and zoom problems are usually due to wearing/cracking of those bushings.

If it's still in warranty, send it in. Otherwise, the cost of repair probably exceeds the value of the lens. Sorry.

Hi. Is the Nikon AF Nikkor 20-35mm 1:2.8D made for Nikon's digital cameras? Is it compatible with their whole line or just some? Thanks


No. The lens will work with every Nikon film or digital SLR made in the past three decades or so, though of course the autofocus won't work on older cameras that don't support AF.

I need a manual for AF 35-70mm f2.8 D zoom nikkor - no idea how to use this lens.


i was not able to find a manual - this review may help http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/3570.htm
The lens consists of
  1. Zoom
  2. Focus
  3. Aperture
  4. Macro
1) Zoom - this is by push pull - so you push the lens out to wide angle 2) To switch to manual focus - will need to be done on the camera and then you can use the front control ring to focus - 4) also you can use the button to switch to macro mode - BUT only with the Zoom at 35mm - lens fully extended 3) You have an aperture range of 2.8 - 22 this varies the amount of light allowed into the lens - 2.8 is the most light - F4 to F5.6 to F8 - each change halfs the light allowed in - so changing from F4 to F5.6 half the light

Nikon 18-55 zoom lens doesn't autofocus


You might like to check if the A/M slider switch on the lens by the Nikon label is set to A.
It sometimes gets moved accidently.
Set to M the lens will not autofocus.

The internal circuit board, or the internal harness may be at fault. You will have to send the lens to Nikon for service.
