Question about Nikon Telephoto AF Micro Nikkor 105mm f/2.8D Autofocus Lens

1 Answer

Lens will not open up all the way

I just purchased a Nikon AF-s VR 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED lens. I am using it on my Fuji S5, which is a Nikon D200 body. I have seen the f stop of 2.8 only a few times on my camera display. it usually will only open up to a 3.3, occasionally a 3.2. I tried it in Aperture prioroty as well as manual, which is what I shoot in most of the time. I cannot get it down to the 2.8.
Is there a problem with this lens?

Is the maximum available aperture dependent on the focus distance? Many macro/micro lenses "dim" slightly as you focus in close.

See if you get 2.8 focused at infinity.

18-70 AF-S lens in D200 kit does not autofocus, especially when camera is held in vertical position....is camera reset an option to correct this, as is suggested for the 18-200 VR lens?


Make sure the camera is set to auto focus and your metering is correct
Make sure the lens is set to A and not M
Make sure your body (the little switch on the front) is set to A and not M
camera reset may help, but may not
to do this turn off the camera and hold the two buttons with the green dots on them and turn on the camera

I set this "Nikon 105mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor Lens" or tried to set it to F2.8 in full manual mode. the F-Stop wandered from F2.8 to F3 / F4.5 depending on where i pointed the lens. I...


You have described Aperture priority mode: you set the f/stop and the shutter speed changes to make the exposure correct.

Full manual mode requires you to set both the shutter speed and the f/stop. You are seeing the recommended f/stop for the shutter speed you have selected.

I can't tell the diff between VR and VR OFF with my Nikon 18-200 lens. Is there a foolproof way to tell if VR is functional?


Charles, I can save you the effort. The D200 lacks the menu item I suggested and will not show any symbols in the viewfinder or LCD to indicate which VR setting you have the lens set to.

But Ken Rockwell's guide to the lens has a big clue: VR takes a moment to stabilise, so you ideally need to half press the shutter release and wait a second or so before firing the shutter.

I don't want to plagiarise his excellent article, so instead suggest that you click here to read what the man has to say himself. He discusses the benefits of your lenses VR early in the article, but you may want to skip right down the page to the heading, "How to use the VR".

Ken has also created an excellent alternative D200 users' guide, click here.

Good luck, and please take a moment to rate my reply.

P.S. If the hotlinks don't work then the 18-200 lens review is at:-

Camera will not take picture with nikkor 105mm lens


Check if the lens is properly mounted. If still you get the error message, clean the electrical contacts between the lens and the camera using an eraser. Take care not to let any dust fall into the body. Attach the lens and try.
