SOURCE: Pentax Ist DL auto focus not working anymore after using Quantaray AF LD 70-300MM Lens

It seems to be a connection issue between the Lens and the Camera body. Perhaps the mount is not true to the body Ask Pentax about this their Technical Support Team

Tamron repaired the lens under warranty terms. It worked fine after the repair.

I believe Promaster does not have any lenses with focus motor in the lens, so it will not autofocus with your D60. Their AF versions for Nikon will work with your camera's metering system for proper exposure, but you would have to focus manually.

SOURCE: I broke the top lens on my Tamron AF 70-200mm

Contact Tamron USA via their web site or a phone call to get a price quote for the front lens assembly. However, I would strongly suggest that instead you allow Tamron to repair your lens since more than likely the internal roller glides have been compressed due to the impact. This would allow the front lens group to wobble a bit while focusing and zooming, and this would seriously affect the image quality.

My E 300 works fine with the 14-45 3.5-5.6 lens, bright viewfinder and good photos. However, with the 40-150 3.5-4.5 lens the viewfinder went dark abd photos are overexposed. Problem went back and forth...


I assume this happens while your camera is in the automatic mode. Because if the camera is in manual, you can't assume both lenses give the same light to the sensor.
But I should look if the contacts on the lens and in the camera, ale all clean and shiny. And not one of the contacts is allowed a dent. Not even a little dent. All contacts must be flexible. Then be sure the Aperture setting on the 40-150 must be correct. The camera manual does not say a thing about the settings on the lens, but I should look there too.

Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number). You can control the aperture from the camera body the same was as with a lens without an aperture ring.

My Nikon D5000 isn't recognizing my Sigma 35-105 lens. Why?


Is this an older manual focus lens? If so, it lacks the electronics to communicate with the camera. You have to set the camera to Manual exposure mode (turn the mode dial to "M"). Set the shutter speed on the camera body as usual and set the aperture by turning the aperture ring on the lens. You'll have to set the exposure without any help from the camera's light meter.

Rokinon 800mm F/8 Multi-coated Lens for Nikon will this go on a nikon 5000 Thanks for your time


Yes. Of course, the lens isn't an autofocus lens so you'll have to focus manually. Also, the lens does not have the electronics to communicate with the camera, so you'll have to shoot in the manual exposure mode without any assistance from the camera's exposure meter. You can review photos and use the histogram to fine-tune the exposure.

You're probably going to want to use a tripod to hold the camera steady. The lens is long enough, magnifying even the slightest camera movement, and heavy enough that it's almost impossible to hand hold.

A700 flashing "lens" message


Is the lens switched to manual as well as the mode dial. If the compatable lens is a minolta requiring an M42 adapter make sure that the protruding arm/rod is operating the shutter when depressed and that the adapter when fitted operates the lens when turned from auto to manual. Good luck.

"hand" icon flashing


Hello,

It's likely your photos are blurry from camera motion, caused by taking a hand-held photo with a slow shutter speed, rather than out of focus.

The hand icon flashes when you don't have enough light to take a crisp (not blurry) photo without either using a tripod (or a flash). The reason for a flashing hand is you can't "hand-hold" the camera at the current settings - you need to use a tripod. If you are "zoomed in" (on a telephoto setting for your lens) you can sometimes get a crisp hand-held photo if you "zoom out" to a wider angle setting on the lens. (You need a steadier hand to hand-hold a telephoto lens setting than a wide-angle lens setting.)

You may have changed a setting that sets the ISO (the normal setting would be "auto") and if so, if you change the ISO to a high number, or to auto, this will help you take better photos in low light. Check your camera's user's manual to see how to check/change the ISO.

When you have more light the icon will stop flashing. If you need to take hand-held photos in low light then you need to use flash, or get a better camera that has better low light capabilities.

Picture won't take on auto


snoopytwo, jmv23 & guests,
Sounds like you have been taking photos in both auto & manual modes, make sure your f-stop is set at the range it needs to be to allow enough light for the camera to take the photo. Since the lens and the camera communicate, if the lens is closed down & not allowing enough light the camera will not take the photo - does that make sense - Look at the metering in auto mode and see what the camera says the conditions are for a specific lighting condition check to see if the lens has a aperture position for Auto, usually a dot on the lens ring to align with a setting in red or green (likely a F-22) depending on the make of lens, that has been moved to some place in the middle and not returned while trying other manual settings so the shutter won't release because the camera is told by the lens there is not enough light or slow enough shutter to take this picture.

Nikon D40 (very dark photographs)


If lens has aperture ring make sure its set to highest aperture (f22 etc). With nikon CPU lenses, all exposure metering is done inside lens, sounds like lens still has problems. Try another lens to test camera body, camera shop should be willing to help with this.

Nikon D200 with Sigma 18-200 DC AF D lens


Yes, please turn off the camera when changing lens, make sure on the lens is on its full aperture if you are doing auto. if doest not work to make is test turn the camera on the manual mode and the lens too.
If your lens is new there should not be any problem, if you bought the lens used make sure all the points are clear not rusted. some time when lens fall of it breaks its points inside.
