Question about Nikon Telephoto 500mm f/8.0N Reflex Manual Focus Lens

1 Answer

Nikon 20mm f2.8 AF won't focus, it is stuck on infinity.

The last time I used the lens it was fine. I took it out of my bag and it wouldn't focus, automatically and manually. I know it is the lense because my other lenses work on the camera. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks, Tuggboat

Why does focus ring hit some type of stop?


Hi.
There is a problem inside your lens. It can be a flexible PCB (printed circuit board) or screw out of possition, so the focus moving parts can´t complete the range.
If the infinity focus gets at 3ft, there are also some optical group loose. That is the reason infinity position is located closer than it must be.
Send it to a Sigma Service.

My AF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5D IF lens does not achieve infinity focus anymorw and wanna repair. How is that done?


You can't do it yourself. You will only do additional damage and add to the cost of repair. You need special training and expensive specialized equipment to repair and align a lens. I suggest that you go on the Nikon USA website and find the closest Nikon Repair Depot. They will give you a repair estimate.

Why wont my Nikon af nikkor 70-300mm G lens autofocus its self with my D5000 camera


The D5000 does not have a focus motor in the body, relying on the lens to have one. The old 70-300mm G lens does not have a focus motor, relying on the camera to have one. Thus, this combination will not autofocus.
The newer 70-300mm AF-S G lens, as well as the even newer 70-300mm VR AF-S lens, do have the autofocus motor and thus will autofocus on the D5000.

Hi, It wouldn't autofocus on the D5000 as the body doesn't have an auto focus motor in the body and since that lens is AF, not AF-S, it won't autofocus. It should autofocus on the D7000 though, how far away are you from the object you're trying to photograph?

AF 20mm f:2.8 D don't autofocus accurately. It focuses always behind the focus point.

Make sure that your dof is in the right range for your chosen f value and that your focus settings are set correctly in your camera.....some of the older nikon lenses do not have proper data and will not focus properly on any camera and must be focused manually. That being said 20mm is fairly wide and it is not overly complicated to manually focus

Lens will not open up all the way


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.

Repairing 20mm af nikon lens diaphragm lock


I'll offer the same answer I just gave on a D200 question: With the lens off, look at the camera mount area. If you are looking straight at the mount, there is a small tab sticking out at about 7oclock on the outside edge of the mount ring. The tab is spring loaded and may be damaged. You should be able to push the tab toward the base of the camera and it will snap back if functioning properly. If it feels loose or doesn't spring back, then switch that ab controls is not being activated.
