I have a new Nikon 3100. The problem now is my 18-55 zoom lens is locked and it won't move. In the manual setting and by unclicking the outer lens auto button, the focus front lens is fine. It'


Simple answer; NO! What ever you do; do not try to force anything to move and don't try to disassemble the lens. Contact a Nikon Repair Depot (found in your instruction manual or on the Nikon USA website) and they will give you instructions for returning it for a repair estimate. If it is still in warranty, there should be no charge.

Won't auto focus


Make sure the auto-manual focus switch on your camera is set to auto (A) and also make sure the auto manual focus selector on the lens is in auto (A) as well. If your lens contacts are dirty then this will affect the function of the lens as well. Clean those with either a lint free type cloth and alcohol or methylated spirits.

Using canon Speedlite 300TL on Nikon D80 camera


The Canon Speedlite will work, but you won't get the full functionality of a Nikon Speedlight. Most importantly you won't get the through-the-lens metering.

Can I use my Quantaray 28-80mm lens with a new Nikon D3000?


Quantaray makes their lenses available for a variety of camera brands. If the lens has a Canon mount, then no. If the lens has a Nikon mount, then yes.

Also, bear in mind that if the lens does not have an internal focusing motor then you will not get autofocusing with the D3000. Everything else will still work, but you'll just have to focus manually.

Can we use a Cobra Auto 150S Compact auto/manual flash and slave unit on a Nikon 5000 SLR


As a slave, yes, though you won't get any of the features of a Nikon CLS-compatible flash unit. You would be shooting in manual flash mode. Due to its higher trigger voltage, I would NOT put the unit onto the camera itself.

Nikon D50 with Nikon DX 18-55 lens will not focus


Hi,
Sorry to hear about your lens. If you are able to autofocus and take pictures with any other lens, then it means that your problem lies with the kit lens. If you can take picture in manual mode, but not in autofocus mode, then the AF motor in the lens in not functioning. I had the same thing happen to my 50mm 1.4 lens.

Depending on your location, there are Nikon repair centers in Melville, NY and Torrance, CA.
Hope this helps,
Andrew

Hi,
Sorry to hear about your lens. If you are able to take pictures with a telephoto and any other AF-S lens, then it means that your problem lies with the standard lens. With standard, I assume you mean the kit lens. If you can take picture in manual mode, but not in autofocus mode, then the AF motor in the lens in not functioning, I had the same thing happen to my 50mm 1.4 lens. The kit lens is under 5 years warranty in the US, provided you are the original purchaser/owner of the camera kit.
Depending on your location, there are Nikon repair centers in Melville, NY and Torrance, CA.
Hope this helps,
