The D5000 needs an AF-S lens to autofocus.
Nikon have not fitted the mechanical focus drive to the D5000.

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?

DOES SIGMA 70-210MM UC MF FIT AND USABLE ON NIKON D5000


Sigma makes lenses for a variety of cameras. If the lens has Nikon mount then it will fit onto the D5000. However, it's a manual focus lens so naturally you won't get autofocus. The lens also lacks the electronics to communicate with the camera, so you will get no help from the camera's exposure meter and you'll have to shoot in Manual exposure mode.

I now use this lens on Nikon N5005 and want to purchase the D5000 camera. Is this lens compatible?


Yes and no. The lens will fit on the D5000 without a problem. But the sensor on the D5000 is smaller than a frame of 35mm film so you'll end up using only the center portion of the image. What this amounts to is that the lens will act like a 115-450 zoom would on the N5005. Also, if the lens doesn't have a focus motor built in (Sigma calls it HSM) then it won't autofocus on the D5000. You can still focus manually, though.

Will the Quanta 28-200 for the Nikon n75 work on the Nikon D5000?


Yes and no. I assume the lens is of more or less the same vintage as the N75? If so, the lens will fit onto the D5000. All of the camera's exposure and metering modes will work properly. However the lens lacks an interal focus motor and thus will not autofocus on the D5000. You can focus manually, and the green focus indicator in the viewfinder will continue to work.

Is the older vivitar 80-200mm f4.5 compatable to nikon d5000


Assuming the lens has a Nikon mount, then yes and no.

The lens will fit on the D5000. You will not have any autofocus capability. Nor will you get any metering assistance from the camera's light meter. But if you're willing to focus and meter manually, the lens will work with the D5000.

Currently I have a Nikon F65 non-digital camera with 28-80mm lense. I am planning to buy a Nikon D5000 DSLR. My Question: If i buy a Body on D5000 and will be able to use my f65 lenses? Will there will any...


If anything, you will gain image quality because the sensor on the D5000 is smaller than a frame of 35mm film. Thus you will only be using the central portion of the lens. On the D5000, the 28-80mm lens will act as a 42-120mm would on the F65.

However, you will lose autofocus capability. The D5000 does not have a focus motor in the body, relying on the lens having the motor, and neither version of the 28-80mm lens has a focus motor. The lowest-end Nikon dSLR with a focus motor is the D90.

Nikon auto focus lens not working, only in manual


What camera body? This lens doesn't have an internal focusing motor and thus will not autofocus on the D40/D40x/D60/D5000/D3000.

Can't autofocus Nikon 50mm f1.8 lens


The lens has an autofocus motor, but because it is an older model, it will not autofocus for the D40(x), D60, or D5000, which have more stripped down components. I advise you exchange the lens for the newer model, or return the D5000 and get the D90 for just a bit more.

No autofocus


We tried the same lens on another Nikon (D90) and auto focus did not work.
We mounted a new set of lens on the original D40x, and it worked.
Turns out the 2 year Nikon lens (18mm-135mm) was bad. Nikon lens have a 5 year warrantee. The lens will be sent back to Nikon with no service or shipping charge.

Thanks,
K
