There is a known defect in some of the Nikkor lens' that were manufactured during a certain time period. The same thing happened to my lens.. it stopped autofocusing for no reason at all. (It was purchased in May 08). I shipped it to Nikon and I received a new lens within 10 days of shipment. You have a 3 year warranty on the camera and the lens'. Nikon has AMAZING customer support when it comes to legitimate issues.
Go to the web site. Fill out a repair order and send the lens to them exactly as stated in the instructions. You will have a new lens within 2 weeks.

I had this problem with my canon. i put the lens on manual ande took a few shots focusing manually. then i switched it back over and it was working again. ultimately there is a problem with the motor in the lens. so, i would return it if this doesn't work for you. good luck

Why wont my Nikon af nikkor 70-300mm G lens autofocus its self with my D5000 camera


The D5000 does not have a focus motor in the body, relying on the lens to have one. The old 70-300mm G lens does not have a focus motor, relying on the camera to have one. Thus, this combination will not autofocus.
The newer 70-300mm AF-S G lens, as well as the even newer 70-300mm VR AF-S lens, do have the autofocus motor and thus will autofocus on the D5000.

What digital nikon cam works autofocus in a nikkor micro AF 105mm f/2.8D?


This lens lacks the autofocus motor, so it will only autofocus on cameras with the motor. This lens will autofocus on every Nikon digital SLR except for the D40, D40x, D60, D3000, D3100, D5000, and D5100. It will autofocus with the D1 family, D2 family, D3 family, D50, D70, D70s, D80, D90, D100, D200, D300, D300s, and D700 (I hope I haven't left any out).

I have a Nikon D3100 and want to buy a zoom lens 70-300.Please help I am confused is a Nikon AF Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4-5.6G compatible? And is it automatic focus?


That lens will work with the D3100, except for the autofocusing. In order to autofocus with the D3100, you need AF-S lenses, such as the AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED or the
AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR.

I have a Nikon D40x and purchased the AF nikkor 50 mm f/1.8D lens a couple years ago, but find that it can only be focused manually. Is there any way to "turn on" the autofocus? I have not had...


Sorry, but the D40x lacks an autofocus motor, depending on the lens to have one. Nikon calls such lenses AF-S. This particular lens does not have such a motor, relying on the camera to have one. The only 50mm lens currently available with an autofocus motor is this one:
http://www.nikonusa.com/Nikon-Products/Product/Camera-Lenses/2180/AF-S-NIKKOR-50mm-f%252F1.4G.html

Earlier this week the Nikon web site listed a new 50mm F1.8 lens with an autofocus motor, but then it was removed. Hopefully they will officially announce this lens soon.

I just purchased my d60 camera, unfortunately I bought it on craigslist, it came with a nikkor 50mm lense, I wanted a auto focus lense to take some sports pictures, I took it to shutterbug camera shop and...


That's odd that Shutterbug camera shop couldn't tell you everything you needed to know about that camera. I looked it up in a PDF manual because the new "small frame" cameras require different lenses as is the case here Autofocus with this camera is only supported by AF-S and AF-I lenses the lens is equipped with the autofocus motor other types of lenses will not autofocus.

The "kit" lens for this camera is the AF-S DX Zoom Nikkor 18-55 F3.5/5.6G VR.

Now if Shutterbug camera shop mounted an AF-S lens and the camera didn't autofocus then they are right in saying it's broke. I just find it strange they couldn't tell you that straight up. You need to install an AF-S lens and try it, again they may have put the wrong type on it and of course it won't work.

I take it that you don't have the camera manual?

If not go into Google search Type in Nikon D60 PDF manual and click search fifth one down on the first page is what you need click on it and download your "new" manual

Here is the link I used

http://www.google.com/#hl=en&sugexp=ldymls&xhr=t&q=Nikon+D60+Digital+PDF+manual&cp=28&pf=p&sclient=psy&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=Nikon+D60+Digital+PDF+manual&pbx=1&fp=64f84e119f52b91a

See if that helps, personally I think you just need the correct lens.

My Nikon D60 wont auto focus on any of my lenses. Could it be a problem with the body?


The d60 needs Auto focus lenses(Ones with motors inside the lense) it doesn`t autofocus on other lenses. this was done to reduce the price of the camera body

Hope this helps

Can't autofocus Nikon 50mm f1.8 lens


The lens has an autofocus motor, but because it is an older model, it will not autofocus for the D40(x), D60, or D5000, which have more stripped down components. I advise you exchange the lens for the newer model, or return the D5000 and get the D90 for just a bit more.

Auto focus on 55mm lens not working on d 60 nikon


Since Nikon doesn't have a 55mm lens in its current lineup, I'm going to assume it's a rather old lens (though probably newer than my 55mm). As such, it won't have an internal focusing motor, and thus will not autofocus on the D60. The D60 requires lenses designated AF-S in order to autofocus.
