Auto focus problems using 18-200mm lens on D200

I have been using the 18 - 200mm on my D200. For some time now, I have had problems with the auto focus, in the wide angle range of the lens. In the zoom from about 100mm the auto focus works well. I have tried to shoot on manual but with not very good results. The "green" focus indicator doesn't always work.

With other lenses, I face no problems at all.
HELP!!!

Hard to pinpoint the exact problem...
What lens do you have attached? Does it have a switch for M/A and M (auto focus/manual focus)? If it does ensure the switch is in the M/A or Auto Focus position.

On the left side of the camera on the face there are 3 positions, C, S, and M. Ensure it is not on "M" for manual.

Do you have your camera setup to only allow the shutter to operate when it is in focus?

try upgrading your firmware (if possible on your camera) and if that doesnt work then it may be the lens, but dont forget to spend a few hours trying to find a option for it in the meny

Trouble shooting in auto focus


Maje sure you lens it not set to manual focus and that the lens is mounted correctly. Also - FWIW - shoot with a fast shutter speed (1/250 or better) to avoid blur.

Can I use my Quantaray 28-90mm on my Nikon D200?


You should be able to. The Quantaray is a motor drive focus inside the lens and the D200 is a external motor drive. So yes you should. Put it on and see if the auto focus works.

Nikon D200 refuses to auto focus with any lens it just doesn't do anything.


Does the camera body has a M/AFswitch? it would be located in front on the left side if that accidently gets changed to M your lens will not AF any more until you change it?? I know it sounds so simple but who knows!! Barry Brown

Trouble auto focusing


If it's any consolation, I have the same setup and the same problem. I'm now at the point where I'm probably going to have to return the lens as faulty, but there are a few things it could be on yours which you might want to check.

Have you got the D200 set to auto-focus? The selector (on the front of the camera, on the lower left) should be in the S position (as opposed to C or M).

Have you got the lens set to auto-focus? It should be in the M/A position, rather than M.

Have you tried cleaning the contacts? Pop the lens off and give the contacts a clean with the appropriate equipment. Dust on the contacts could be causing a problem.

Failing that, have you tried turning the camera on and off a few times?

I've obviously tried all the above on mine, and now suspect I've got a faulty lens that needs fixing ... which really sucks! Good luck with it, let me know if you get it working.

My first question would be what lens are you using - some lenses have auto stability features - please post lens make, type, model number and when you purchased it.
