Question about Nikon 17-55mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom Lens

Open Question

AF-S Nikkor 17-55mm DX 2.8 G Lens overexposing images on D300

The D300 internal meter is reading incorrectly for this lens when mounted  and all images are wildly overexposed. Tried another lens and it is working fine w. D300 + internal meter so it is the lens for sure.  Autofocus is in the lens working but in order to expose correctly have to push the meter up to 1000's of a second. Is this something to do with the contacts or rubber ring letting in additional light? Is this a common problem?

SOURCE: Nikon D50 autofocus

I just encountered the same problem. The advice giver who forced the focus ring with autofocus engaged was right on the mark. (Thanks!) Actually, I didn't need to force it, just gave it a firm push. Voila!

SOURCE: Nikon D80 Autofocus problem

Try re-setting the camera? On the D40 it is 'Menu' scroll down one to Custom Setting Menu (a pencil) and click reset 'ok' yes 'ok' this worked for me.

SOURCE: Camera won't autofocus

I too had D50 autofocus problems and ended up buying a new D300. I then learned that my issue was in the focus areas. The D50 has five focus areas. As you look through the lens, you will see one rectangle in the center and four to the top, bottom, left and right. You should make sure that the center rectangle is highlighted. Use the round thumbdial on the back of the camera to move the focus area.

SOURCE: Nikkor 50 1.8 overexposes

You probably have oils on the aperture blades and they do not close to the F stop you set as quickly as required, thus causing the over exposure. Easy to pinpoint: sent the aperture to full open (F1.8) and use appropriate shutter speeds as determined by the camera (in manual mode), if the picture does not over expose, then the problem is with the oiled contaminated aperture blades. Have it cleaned.

SOURCE: nikkor 70-300 lens wont autofocus on d60.. HELP!!!

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.

Sometimes photos are overexposed using A or P mode on my Nikon D80 with 18-200 mm lens. I remove the lens, then re-attach it and all is fine. What is happening? Poor contacts?


Contacts should not have anything to do with the metering. That is done in the camera itself and not the lens. If a photo comes out overexposed, which is normal when using P or A mode, as metering isn't perfect, use the exposure compensation (+/- menu or button) to reduce the exposure as much as you feel is necessary. Exposure can be subjective so you should trust yourself more than the camera.

Nikon D300 When I depress the shutter half way or fully on my D300 the frame counter reads r27 and the lens (any previously compatible Nikkor lens) will not auto focus. The camera is not set in burst mode...


Only reason the lens will not auto focus when you depress the shutter half way is due to either lens AF switch is set to Manual OR camera body's focus system is on M. There is 3 way toggle switch below the synch port around the lens mount. It should be set to C or S in order for auto focus to work. If all the settings are correct and even "AF-ON", next to rear dial doesn't activate auto focus then the issue maybe in the setting or the body itself. As for the buffer reading r27, I think mine displays r## regardless of burst/continuous mode.

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

Problem with the Nikkor AF-S DX 55-200 zoom lens.


I just had the same exact problem! However, in my case I was finishing up a photo shoot at work, went to switch lenses, and when I picked up my 55-200mm zoom lens, the tip of it fell off!! I was able to put it back into the end of the lens, but now I am having the same autofocus problem and sound effect. I think it is because it is off track inside the lens. But I have only had mine for 5 months! I'm preparing to send it to Nikon for warrenty repair.
