Question about Sigma Telephoto 105mm f/2.8 EX Macro Autofocus Lens for Nikon AF-D
Been using Minoltas for years--most used lens was 500 mm mirrored... In switching to DIGITAL, I'm trying to get as close to that as I can with Nikon...may have been advised wrong by a relative but bought the Nikon D60...now I'm concerned about lenses that I was told would work (capabilities of the camera re: lenses) -- I bought the Nikkor 300 mm and it is nothing close to results using my Minolta/500 mirrored. I shoot in forests and jungles, various lighting, usually long distances and quite small subjects. Any advice or opinion, helpful experience is greatly appreciated. My email addy is: email@example.com. Thanks!
Mirror lenses have no aperture nor AF, so they mount via a T mount. A $30 item that screws on the end of a mirror lens that fits your camera. A mirror lens has it's physical likes and dislikes against a glass 500mm. A glass 500mm will give a better image if you can stop down to F8 F16. Then you have shutter speeds to consider and those lenses are usually connected to the camera's contacts. So they can be specific to a single body. There are older Tamron lenses that take Adaptall mounts, they are old and hard to find. But they solved the multiple body problems for "auto" program lenses. None had AF, when AF camera around, we were back to individual lenses per body.

The lens error is due to failure of the lens control system. You can remove battery and card replace battery and while switching on tap the lens hood on your hands so as to disengage any dirt or mechanism being struck.
Use some air to blow between the lens to dislodge any sand particles struck inside. If none of these works then you can think of taking consensus with the service centre.
get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at the Nikon service as you do not have to run around for spares.
