Question about Nikon Normal AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D Autofocus Lens

Nikon DX AF- S Nikkor 18-55 mm lense locks

My Nikon DX AF- S Nikkor 18-55 mm lense which came with my D40 locks and squeels when trying to auto focus. I noticed when switching to manual, you can focus fine and still take pictures with it. The thing that has me FURIOUS right now is that I thought it was the camera so I sent the body only (the Nikon site says to only send what you believe is broken) and they told me there was a problem with the auto focus operation and a motor needed to be repaired. $150 later, I got the camera back, put the lens on and still broken. Well, now I know it's the lens. I have emails back out to them to see how they fix this mess and to explain what the did and what they charged me for. Not good, I could have bought a replacement lens for less than they charged me for the 'repair' .

The focus ring won't turn.


The focus ring on that lense will lock when the AF switch on the lens is on auto. Move the switch to manual and it will release the focus ring.

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

Trouble with auto focus nikon auto nikkor 60 mm f2.8D


Lock it at f/32. Autofocus lenses have a lock for smallest aperture (highest number) because that is wht the camera body expects. The lock won't engage at any other position.

Tamron 28-300mm Model 185D Auto Zoom on Nikon d40


Autofocus function on the D40 only supports lenses with the
AF-S feature, which have an autofocus motor built into the lens,
instead of using an autofocus motor drive built into the camera.

The Tamron lens you have, does not have a built in motor and
the autofocus function relies on the motor drive in the camera.

It will not work with the D40 or D60, but it will work with other
Nikon digital SLRs, such as the D80. Need to get an AF-S
type lens or upgrade to different Nikon digital SLR. Unless
you do this, you will have to manually focus the Tamron lens.

All of the Nikon DX (for digital) series lenses are also AF-S
type, so they will work with the D40, which is designed as
an entry level digital SLR, therefore it is intended primarily
for use with DX lenses, which are typically sold in a kit with
the D40. Most common one is Nikkor 18-55mm DX AF-S.

Other Nikon AF-S lenses made for film cameras (FX type)
will also work with the D40, but these tend to be expensive
professional models. DX series lenses tend to be more
affordable. You might consider the 18-200mm DX AF-S
as an alternative to the Tamron, but these are not cheap.
