Question about Nikon Normal AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D Autofocus Lens
What camera body? This lens doesn't have an internal focusing motor and thus will not autofocus on the D40/D40x/D60/D5000/D3000.

I have a Nikon D5000 with Nikon lens 18-55mm, and the lens do not focus on auto, it's strange it used to focus automatically, the camera works great but now I have to focus manually every time. It did not hit anything and I never dropped to the ground! any advice, recommendation anything will be really appreciate it.
