Is the lens clean? Are you pressing the shutter button half-way and giving the camera a chance to lock in the focus (it will beep) before pressing the rest of the way? Do you actually move while pressing the button? Try taking a few pics while the camera is on a tripod or a firm surface to eliminate movement.

Hi, I have a Nikon d5000. Love it. Lately, when I put on the zoom lens--Nikon DX AF-S Nikkor 55-200mm 1:4-5 6G ED, and try to take a picture it will not let me. I have it on auto-focus, zoom out


Hi Anna,

In order for your Nikon to auto focus correctly, you need to have several things:

First - focus indicator. In your viewfinder, locate it on the bottom row of the status information bar; you should see a small, green circle in the left-most position. This will BLINK when you partially depress the shutter release (or back button focus - depending how you focus your D5000) whenever the subject is OUT of focus. It will switch to "STEADY ON" when the subject is IN focus. Please note that you will not be able to release the shutter any time it is blinking unless you make a change to the setting that will allow you to release the shutter when the camera is out of focus (not recommended).

Second - light. You must have enough light entering the camera for it to detect areas of different contrast on the selected focus point. If there is not enough light there is too little contrast for the camera to autofocus and no matter how close or how far (and everywhere between) the focus is set resulting in the camera "hunting" near and far to find it. The green circle will not stop blinking. Have you tried in a well lit room or outdoors in daylight?

Third - minimum focus distance. All lenses have a minimum focus distance. Acording to Nikon, yours is rated at 3.6' (1.1m) (see: http://www.nikonusa.com/en/Nikon-Products/Product/Camera-Lenses/AF-S-DX-VR-Zoom-Nikkor-55-200mm-f%252F4-5.6G-IF-ED.html for full specs on this lens). This means your subject needs to be at least 3.6' away to be able to focus on it - manually or aut0matically - it makes no difference. There are lenses that do "very close" focussing that are called "Macro" (but curiously Nikon branded versions of these lenses are called "Micro"), that are also telephoto lenses. Your lens is not a macro/micro type.

Lastly - operational equipment. It is possible that there is an issue with the D5000 camera body or lens (or even both). Try another lens to see it it works as expected. No other lens? Go to camera store with your camera and lens and "shop" for a new lens. Ask to try it out in the store and see if it it works. Maybe the counterperson will identify another issue with your set up.

I hope this helps & good luck!

The lens keeps trying to focus it zooms in and


Try jiggling the lens. Use compressed air to blow out any grit around the lens barrel. If that doesn't do it, you'll need to get the camera serviced.

Blurry looking through the lens


I was loaned a DX40 just yesterday. I didn't get the Tech. manual, but did get a quickstart guide. I hope this will help, have you adjusted your diopter located on the viewfinder? If you have, then I haven't got a clue.

How to achieve full zoom with a Nikon 55-200mmf/4-5.6G ED lens?!


1) What camera body are you using?

2) I do not understand your assertion that it automatically zoomed in. Zooming is a manual function. The automatic functions of your lens pertain only to focusing on of the subject so that your picture is sharp and ensuring that the correct amount of light is admitted so that you have a correct exposure.

3) Are you sure you were turning the zoom ring and not the f-stop ring? The zoom ring is labeled 200 on one end of the scale and 55 on the other. It is also the widest ring on the lens barrel. When you rotate it, the physical length of the lens will lengthen as you rotate it clockwise (viewed from behind the camera) and shorten as you rotate it counter-clockwise.

4) For reference, at 200mm the angle of view on your lens should be 10 degrees and at 55mm about 40 degrees.

Nikkor lense


The camera is most likely a nikon... but the model may make a difference.

Possible internal damage in the gearing.

Possible also to try to reset the camera settings, that may or may not help in this case.

Nikon D80 auto focus


I had the same problem but then I realized the lens was not "in" all the way.  It had not clicked into place when I changed lenses.  This might work for you....it did for me.
