Question about Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

1 Answer

I just purchased the Zeikos fisheye lense for my 50mm Nikkor lens and when I attach it, it doesn' take fisheye photos - just regular with some distortion around the edges... am I using this incorrectly? I'm fairly new so not sure.

The 50 mm lens is a full frame lens, and the D80 is a DX camera. This means that the 50mm lens puts an image out that is bigger than what the D80 can "see". The good part of this is that the D80 (and most of the other Nikon DSLR's) use only the image from the center part of an older lens. The bad part is that if you put the fisheye filter on it, the fisheye effect that is mostly seen at the edges of the lens doesn't show up on the D80 sensor. If you could put the fisheye filter on a DX lens, it would give you the full effect.

D3100 DOESN'T RECONIZE NEW AF-S 50MM 1.8G LENS


There are a series of small brass "buttons" on the outside bottom of the lens where contact is established. If a new lens, there may be some dirt or grease on them preventing contack. Wipe lens and camera buttons carefully with a lent free cloth and retry. Then it is time to go back to the seller.

How do i attach the my zeikos 52mm HD Dslr MC AF 2x telephoto lens to my nikon d90?


You don't. The Zeikos attaches to the front of lens with a 52mm filter thread, which then attaches to the D90. If you have the 18-55mm lens, for example, this will fit onto the front of that lens, effectively converting it to a 36-110mm lens. If you have the 18-105mm lens, this won't fit onto it.
This device is really intended for use with cameras that don't have interchangeable lenses. With your D90, you're much better off using another lens instead of putting this onto the front of another lens.

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.

I got this lens (Nikon AF NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4D) for my D3100 and it doesn't autofocus. I don't knowhow to intervene since there's no switch on the lens itself (because I understand it is small and it doesn't...


The D3100 can't autofocus with this lens. The D3100 does not have a focus motor, depending on the lens to have one. The AF-Nikkor 50mm doesn't have a focus motor, depending on the camera to have one.

To autofocus, you need lenses designated AF-S.

My autofocus is broken on my Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D Is it worth it to have it repaired or should I just purchase a new lens? I can take pictures on Manual Focus still and all of the camera functions worth....


As it isn't really a very special lens, I wouldn't pay for a repair, which is likely to be more than the lens is really worth (you will get back a repaired second-hand lens, which might go bad again). Better to put the money towards a nice mid-range zoom.

LOOKING FOR A Nikon Normal AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.4D Autofocus Lens WITH VR.


There is no such thing. You can see a full list of current Nikon lenses at

You can see a list of current and old Nikon autofocus lenses at
http://www.bythom.com/nikkordb.htm

You'll see that no 50mm Nikon lens has ever had VR.

I have a D90 Nikon, I mounted my Nikkor 50mm 1.8d


Make sure you set the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number) and lock it. Without doing so, the lens will not communicate properly with the camera and thus you will not get the autofocusing.
