Lens shacking automatically

I have a D200 with a Nikkor AF-S DX 18-200mm ED zoom, and I have a similar issue with the inside of the lens shaking when I turn it on, It turned out to be a problem with the vibration reduction motor inside the lens. I first noticed a problem when zooming that it wasn't smooth, as though the inside lens was catching on something. It turned out that a roller inside the zoom somehow caught the wiring strip inside the lens and damaged it, causing the VR motor to short out.
There are forums that tell you how to repair the problem yourself on that lens, providing that you can get the replacement parts. I elected to send mine in for a repair, and hopefully its going to cost less than $AU200.00

Test chart tamrom

Front and back focus tests are good to run. You need to do it for each prime lens (fixed focal length) you have, and at your favorite focal lengths for wide angle zoom lenses too. That means on this 17-50, you would pick wide 17mm and zoomed in 50mm, and several others between. If you pick 25mm and 35mm to test, you would end up with 4 potentially different adjustments. These would apply only at 17, 25, 35 & 50mm. If you shoot at say 20mm focal length, and assume it's the same as 17 or even 25mm, you may be wrong. Too much back or forward focusing is a problem with the camera body usually - not the lens.

I'd pay attention to the lens. Look for cloudiness on the edges of the glass, scratches and fungus on glass, wetness or oil on the aperture blades, specs of dust inside the lens, etc. All of these things take away value from the lens, as they can adversely affect the image or shorten the useful life of the lens. You check these things by looking directly through the lens (not on the camera) and look at a dark background - then a light colored background to help show dirt and dust inside.

The only other thing is to look at actual images taken with the lens. Enlarge the pictures to 100% or more. Look for fuzzy edges, purple fringe edges, colors. You will see all of these issues the more you zoom in. You have to decide what it acceptable to you and what is not. Expensive lenses capture great color, are very sharp and have minimal purple fringing on hard edges (high contrast areas) in pictures.

Good luck!

My pictures all come out with a smudge depending on the focus is howm noticeable it comes out on the image

This is almost certainly due to dirt on your lens or mirror - possibly your sensor. If you have two interchangable lenses try them both and see if there is a difference. If no difference the mirror or sensor is probably dirty. In either case, I would suggest you have them cleaned professionally unless you are confident about working inside your camera. If there is no smudge with one lens then the other lens must be dirty. Clean both ends carefully with soft, lint free cloth.

Hi, I have a canon eos rebel xs. the mirror is kind a dirty, can it be cleaned by me or need to have it cleaned at canon service centers?s I also have a Tamron Telephoto lens, when I do a full zoom in...

This is a digital camera and I suspect it's not the mirror that's showing dirt it's the sensor. If you are seeing small bits of dirt on your pictures then it's dirt on the sensor. I would suggest having it cleaned at a camera store or repair facility if you are not comfortable with doing it yourself. Cleaned improperly can damage the sensor and renter the camera pretty well useless. The dirt inside the Tamron lens I would also suggest cleaning and if you are getting an error message you may as well send the camera in for a complete cleaning. There are kits on the marked to clean the sensors but again if you are not confident that you can do this then sent it to people that can and do it on a regular bases.

Zoom lens won't move

Has your camera being dropped, or is it dirty?
Moving parts clogged with dirt, or its turning knob faulty? Look around the lens body for tiny missing bolts.

Have lint and small specs on inside part of viewfinder, how do you clean this

It may not be the view finder. My guess is that there's some dust on the lens. It will look like the dust is inside the view finder but its actually not. Do these "spec" appear on pictures too? If yes then you will need to clean your lens/get it cleaned.

Let me know if you need more help,

In the screen says lens error

Hi I had the same problem with a codak C743. I cleaned the lens casing from out outside as much as I could and sprayed a tiny bit of WD40 making sure not to get it on the lens itself.

Then I kept turning it on, and zooming in and out until I got the lens error message, switched it off, the on again, wipe, new WD40, zoom etc. repeated this s number of times until the lens was freed.

I think I had some sand/ dirt around the casing.

Worth a try I guess.

When taking a picture the mirror inside the camera stays up untill you remove the lens

It seems that the lens is restricting the operation of the camera mechanism a possible cause may be the lens actuating mechanism is stiff from being underused, from you description the manual setting for your lens is ok but when attached to the camera the pin on the lens which is activated by a bar situated in the camera at the bottom of the lens mount cannot be pushed fully home. Try pushing the pin on the end of the lens to see if it is being restricted and if so may need cleaning or just a few operations to free it off.
