    What exposure mode(s)? You do realize this lens is intended for DX cameras with smaller sensors than the D800?

Of course the D800 is full frame and the DX 18-135 is a DX. The only thing the D800 needs to do is switch to DX mode. The Nikon FF camera's can work with DX lenses. (if the lens has a chip) You still have a nice 15 Mp picture on the D800. But if something was wrong with the lens, you should have an error on the display.
Please to check the lens, switch to live view. You should see something. If not, really something can be wrong.
Carful go to taking a picture step by step. Be sure the lens is correctly put on the body. But before you put it on, look is all contacts are clean shiny and there are no dents.

SOURCE: D50 with a new 18 -200 Nikon lens

Is the Auto/Manual Focus switch turned to Manual? This can easily be moved without realising that you have done so.

If not, get it checked out under Warranty. If you try to do anything yourself you will void the Warranty.

Good luck.

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.

SOURCE: I used the Nikon D90

That's the Nikon error message for a lens with aperture ring set to something other than the minimum (i.e. highest number).
The camera insists on controlling the aperture ring, and to do so, the ring must be set to the minimum setting.
Unless it is a "G" lens, which has no aperture ring whatsoever.
The camera body sets the aperture of the lens wide open while auto-focusing, and displaying through the viewfinder. When it comes time to flip the mirror up and take a picture, the camera dials the aperture to the setting you (or the camera) have selected.

Pictures coming out completely black?


So???
Is the shutter opening? Put it on slow shutter speed and wide aperture say 1 sec at f4 or wider and look down the lens as you take photo. At some point you should see the sensor as the aperture is nearly fully open. If not then it isn't allowing light to get to the sensor, but if that's all working ok (and I assume you've looked at the photos on a computer and checked they are on the card and the exif info is sensible and they are still completely black) then you have a faulty sensor or processor. Remove battery reinsert and go into menu and reset the camera settings. Report back so???

Clean inside lens fungus


Whatever you do, do not open the lens. You will never be able to reassemble it. If the fungus is adversely affecting your images, you need to take it to a qualified camera repair man or send it to a Nikon repair depot found on the Nikon website. If it is not affecting your pictures, I would just live with it.

Nikon Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED IF AF-S DX VR Vs. Nikon Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED IF AF-S DX are they the same len or not? thanks, Ricky at rpotter@eatel.net


No. The VR lens has 15 elements in 11 groups, the other has 13 elements in 9 groups. This indicates that the two lenses have different optical designs. The main difference, however, is that the VR indicates "vibration reduction." This lens has motion sensors and tiny motors that move the lens elements to compensate for camera motion, producing clearer pictures when hand-holding the camera.

Nikon D50 with Nikon DX 18-55 lens will not focus


Hi,
Sorry to hear about your lens. If you are able to autofocus and take pictures with any other lens, then it means that your problem lies with the kit lens. If you can take picture in manual mode, but not in autofocus mode, then the AF motor in the lens in not functioning. I had the same thing happen to my 50mm 1.4 lens.

Depending on your location, there are Nikon repair centers in Melville, NY and Torrance, CA.
Hope this helps,
Andrew

I have a Nikon D50 which I frequently interchanges lenses. My AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm lens has 3 plastic retention flanges attaching to the camera body, and two of these have broken off. Can this be repaired...


without seeing pictures, I'd say you could TRY some plastic epoxy or some type of plastic-specific adhesive. i'm assuming you have the pieces that were broken off. otherwise, i'd say get a new lens...they are relatively reasonable used.

Nikkor Lens Cannot Manual Focus


It sounds like you had the lens set for manual focus when you took the A / M switch plate off. If this was the case then when you but it back together the little arm behind the plate is on the wrong side of a moving gear assembly.

To fix, remove the auto/manual focus switch plate from the camera (just the one screw not the ribbon beneath) Push the switch over to A. Hook the bottom of the plate back to the lens and put the screw back in. Done!
