Question about Nikon 50mm f/1.8 AF Nikkor Lens

1 Answer

My 50mm nikon lens rear cap will not remove! i tried turning it clockwise (its supposed to to unscrew) and couldnt losen it, i even had my PT friend to try unscrew it but no luck. HELP!

Being all excited first time using a dslr, when i was packing everything i just screwed on the cap without looking that it needed to connect and align with the white dot, but I've asked a friend who has the similar lens and he said even screwing it without aligning it you can still unscrew it as long as when you are unscrewing it, your turning it clockwise. If i look at the cap it looks like its evenly screwed. im not a strong person so i dont know how i could have tightened it so tight.

SOURCE: 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.

Hello,
The 50mm lens is fairly old and uses a different system to the later lenses. On the D90 and other later cameras you should rotate the ring to 22 and lock it there using the lock just above the aperture ring.
To adjust the aperture you use the front dial by the on/of switch.

Try it out in A mode. Rotate the mode dial on the top left of the camera to A (Aperture Priority mode) then lightly press the shutter button to turn the meter on. Then rotate the front dial and you will see the aperture reading changing.

The older Nikons changed their apertures using the ring but the later Nikons use the camera controls.

How do I remove stuck rear lens cap for telephoto lens on D3200


Are you sure you're turning it in the proper direction? Nikon lenses (and thus rear lens caps) screw in the "wrong" way. The lens cap turns clockwise to remove.

If it's an ordinary plastic lens cap, as a last resort you could cut it open with a knife.

Remove stuck rear lens cap


The first thing I would try is using one of those rubber pads that are used for removing stubborn lids from jars. If that dose not work, I would use the fact that the Nikon rear lens caps are made out of soft plastic to my advantage. If you have a Dremel rotary tool with a disk cutting tool, you may be able to CAREFULLY and slowly cut away the lens cap. You didn't say which lens this is, but since with most lenses the telephoto position moves the rear element away from the back of the lens, I would set the lens to telephoto before starting to cut. I would start by cutting through the back of the lens cap. Cut a little at a time and try to take off the cap. Proceed slowly periodically trying to remove the cap. Hopefully, the pressure will be relieved and the cap will release before it becomes necessary to cut across the lens flange. When you are done, I would carefully clear the lens of any debris.

How to remove stucked lens cap


It depends what lens cap you have some lens caps you pinch off
Others you pull off some screw off its the easiest thing you can do on the camera you should have had a a1 filter screwed on before the lens cap then all you would have done is unscrew it all.
Then again you may have to take it to Nikon on Wilshire

I have a Nikon D40x and purchased the AF nikkor 50 mm f/1.8D lens a couple years ago, but find that it can only be focused manually. Is there any way to "turn on" the autofocus? I have not had...


Sorry, but the D40x lacks an autofocus motor, depending on the lens to have one. Nikon calls such lenses AF-S. This particular lens does not have such a motor, relying on the camera to have one. The only 50mm lens currently available with an autofocus motor is this one:
http://www.nikonusa.com/Nikon-Products/Product/Camera-Lenses/2180/AF-S-NIKKOR-50mm-f%252F1.4G.html

Earlier this week the Nikon web site listed a new 50mm F1.8 lens with an autofocus motor, but then it was removed. Hopefully they will officially announce this lens soon.

This particular lens is known to be a tight fit, especially when new. Most likely you just need to turn the lens a hair more and a little bit harder than you normally would in order to have it "click" home.
