Do this:

- Make sure the autofocus button in the front of the camera is set to AF
- Make sure your AF switch in your lens (if it has one) is turned ON

Vivitar 84mm 1.4 aspherical on Nikon D80


If you mean the 85mm, it's not an autofocus lens. Nor does it have the electronics to communicate with the camera. You need to set the camera to manual exposure mode (turn the mode dial to M) and set the exposure manually. Set the shutter speed by turning the command dial on the back of the camera and the aperture by turning the aperture ring on the lens.

Again, this is a manual lens. No auto-anything. But it's a nice fast lens, with shallow depth of field when you want it.

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).

Won't autofocus


First thing I would do is clean the contacts on the camera and the lens. Do you have this issue with another lens, if not then it is not the camera. If you do then recheck the lens. You could call Nikon Digital as well at 1-800-645-6689

D80 SLR lens /flash prob lem


What are your other lenses? If they're not AF lenses, you're not going to get autofocus or metering.

Is your flash not working when popped up? Remember that the flash won't pop up automatically in Manual mode.

I have the Nikon 18-200 lense and it will not autofocus on my D80. I tried other lenses on the camera and they auto focused, so I presumed it was the camera. I sent it for repair, received it after being...


Try you 18-200 lens on another Nikon DSLR. If it still does not Autofocus. It is the lens. Sometimes the electrical contact points of the lens are not making correct contact with the camera. ok?

Nikon D80 won't autofocu


I had this problem too and found that my lens wasn't firmly attached!

Check to see that your lens is firmly seated in the camera. Do this by holding the lens and twisting counterclockwise carefully. If you hear a click, you probably just fixed the problem!

Nikon D80 using Bower AF 724AFN


I also purchased a Bower 724AFN to use with my D80, and experience the same problems. Received confirmation from Nikon that this flash unit is not compatible with the camera. I then purchased an SB-600 flash, and haven't looked back. It's worth the extra money for this high quality unit; fully compatible, and compliments the TTL features of the D80. I'll never deviate from original Nikon accessories again.
