Unless you have extensive experience, this is best left to professionals. If you didn't spend much, then you could "learn" on it, but if it is something you really value...don't do it.

I need a new front element for a tokina 12-24mm, where can I get one from and can I do the repair myself?


Do you have a lens collimator and other equipment needed to ensure proper alignment of the element? If you don't, send the lens back to Tokina and have them replace the element.

Unless you have a lens collimator and other equipment necessary to ensure proper alignment when reassembling the lens, don't do it yourself. Take it to a camera shop and have a properly trained and equipped professional do it.

Sticky zoom ring on a Nikkor 18-55 AF-S Zoom. The zoom gets jerky at the 18-24 mark. I think it needs some lube but I don't know where to put it?


You would have to disassemble the lens barrel to get to the zoom sliders, and lubrication is not likely the problem anyway. The zoom mechanism uses nylon bushings sliding in a groove, and zoom problems are usually due to wearing/cracking of those bushings.

If it's still in warranty, send it in. Otherwise, the cost of repair probably exceeds the value of the lens. Sorry.

Tamron AF 18-200MM XR Di II LD dust inside; how do I clean?


Dust and other small debris is drawn into the lens due to the vacuum created when zooming in. You can reduce the chances of drawing in dust and debris by slowly zooming in as opposed to rapidly zooming in.

Now that you how it gets in and how to help prevent it from getting in again, comes the bad news. There's really no way to disassemble the lens to clean it up at home. These are precision optics with many small moving parts that really need to be serviced in a dust free environment. You best bet it to contact Tamron (or authorized servicer) to learn how much it will cost to be cleaned by them. This will keep the warranty (if any) intact, too.

Good luck!

Minolta SLR Lens on Sony - Does it work.


As I understand it, Sony bought Minolta, lock, stock, and barrel. Theoretically the lenses should fit and may work on manual, but I'm very sure they will not totally work on sony digital cameras. I wouldn't even try to fit them as the autofocus system on the camera may be damaged.

Tokina 80-200 2.8 AT-X compatibility issue with Nikon D50


I have one that had the same problem...it needs to be re-chipped to work with the newer camera's. It worked great on my N80 just not on my D-50...I got the F-- error when the exposure meter shut off. Send it to thk photo to be rechipped....takes about 3 - 4 weeks, gets cleaned and re-calibrated for about $83.
