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

Sigma lens manuals


Chuck, sorry for the late response. Last days I had to work through several hundred anonymous questions. Most irrelevant and not complete, so I could not answer most of them, but I had to read them all.
Sigma, does not have a service, where you can download a manual. But the manuals from Nikon, most of the time don't tell anything about how to use the lens.
I found a page with all specs. The link is down here.

I have to guess why you did put the question here in the first place. I think because you have a Nikon camera without a focus motor. Like a D3x00 or the D5x00 or a D40 or D60. (for the x you can add 0 1 2 or 3)
If you have one of these camera's the lens can't be used with auto focus You only can use the lens in manual focus. Most other camera's from Nikon, like D80 D90 D7000 D300 and more expensive, all do have a focus motor and can work with this lens in full automatic focus mode.

Nikon af-s 18-70 dx autofocus problem


ff1esta,
Moving a camera from cold to warm after it has been in the cold for a long time will cause condensation to form. It's a good idea if you can to allow the camera and lenses to gradually warm up. Like first in a garage or enclosed porch in the bag before binging them into a warm place. Since you have the moisture in it now you have to allow it to get out, the electrical components are at risk, the condensation or fog may have caused the lens not to be able to focus. remove the lens from the camera body and let both sit to air out. Since it's been over a week now if there is still some moisture you may want to get the camera into a shop to be cleaned and inspected to avoid corrosion.

My camera lense will not focus automatically or manually.


There is no battery in the lens.  The lens receives power from the camera. Whether or not the lens is getting power, though, you should be able to focus manually.
When you say you can't focus manually, do you mean that you can't turn the focusing ring on the lens, or that when you turn the ring the image does not come into focus?
If you decide the lens needs to be repaired, I recommend sending it to Canon.  You can go to their website (canonusa.com if you're in the US), click on support, and follow the links.

If this is a manual focus lens, you will need to do two things (and an optional third thing.)

1) On the side of the camera, you have to switch the focus mode switch from "AF" (Autofocus) to "MF" (Manual focus) . . . Yeah. I know, you probably already did that. <grin>

2) When you press Menu, go to the Custom Setting and change the Allow aperture setting to on, so that the Pentax K100D will then work with manual control of the aperture ring. You need to do this or the K100D will not work with manual exposure lenses (M lenses) or even autoexposure lenses (KA, KA2, FA, etc.) when you move the aperture ring from the "A" position to one of the manual aperture settings!

3) This is optional, but in the Custom Setting you can also turn on the Fl in manual focus mode, so that even though you don't have autofocus capability, you will get a beep indicator when you have successfully managed to manually focus your lens.

I have a few nice manual focus lenses that I have a lot of fun playing with on my K100D.

Take care & Happing Imaging!

Buying a camera lens


Presumably you intend to use a DSLR. The automatic nature of modes relates to exposure. Lenses autofocus assuming you have turned the autofocus switch on. Switch the autofocus off if you want to manually focus. Whichever you use will not affect the modes

Nikon d40 autofocus


This happened to me once on a D70... When mounting the lens, make sure it clicks in all the way when turning counterclockwise. Also it may be worthy to note that both the lens AND the camera must be set to autofocus mode ("A" switch set on both lens and cam).

Epson 3000Z in "sports" mode


With the telephote lens, I am assuming that the camera is a bit more sensitive to any form of camera shake. My suggestion, when using the telephoto lens, is to manually set the shutter speed to its fastest setting (that, or set it to "sports mode"). Also, experiment with the telephote lens using your tripod. Set the camera up on a table and use the timer so that the camera will snap the image automatically. See if the picture is still blurry. If you don't have a tripod, just place it flat on the table.
