Re: nikon lens problem

It is hard to answer your question, since you don't say what kind of accident took place.  Since that camera is over 2 years old, I would have to think that for less money that it would take to fix, you can get a better replacement.  For example, the Nikon L15, which you can pick up for ~$140 is an 8 MP, 3x zoom like the 5900, but adds image stabilization as well.  It is about the same ease of use, but has some nice new features, like Nikon's D-Lighting which helps recover shadows.

Nikon coolpix l810 lens frozen

hello,do remove your battery,have it checked by a precision instrument to ascertain the state of charge,also have it what is known as 'dropped' checked (place a heavy current draw to establish the conditions of the cells)as simply putting a voltmeter across,does not stress the cells enough,this is the most common complaint,do also check the conditions of the connecting terminals to the battery,substitute with a known good battery/and vice versa with your battery on to another appliance with an identical power rating.hope that helps, cheers

Toyo 500mm lens to nikon d90 mount

At the risk of being obvious, you need a Nikon mount.

The lens comes with a T-mount. This is a "universal" mount with adapters for almost any camera mount, including the Nikon F mount. If the lens doesn't come with one, get a Nikon T-mount adapter.

The lens doesn't have any electronics, so you'll be shooting completely manual. No autofocus, no autoexposure, not even any exposure help from the camera's light meter.

My Nikon D5000 isn't recognizing my Sigma 35-105 lens. Why?

Is this an older manual focus lens? If so, it lacks the electronics to communicate with the camera. You have to set the camera to Manual exposure mode (turn the mode dial to "M"). Set the shutter speed on the camera body as usual and set the aperture by turning the aperture ring on the lens. You'll have to set the exposure without any help from the camera's light meter.

F-- showing on viewfinder on nikon F5

This indicates that the camera isn't communicating with the lens. Not surprising, since the 55 2.8 Micro has no electronics for communicating with the camera.
This does not mean that the lens cannot be used, however. You simply have to switch to the Manual exposure mode and set the exposure yourself.

Rokinon 800mm F/8 Multi-coated Lens for Nikon will this go on a nikon 5000 Thanks for your time

Yes. Of course, the lens isn't an autofocus lens so you'll have to focus manually. Also, the lens does not have the electronics to communicate with the camera, so you'll have to shoot in the manual exposure mode without any assistance from the camera's exposure meter. You can review photos and use the histogram to fine-tune the exposure.

You're probably going to want to use a tripod to hold the camera steady. The lens is long enough, magnifying even the slightest camera movement, and heavy enough that it's almost impossible to hand hold.

Nikon 18-55 zoom lens doesn't autofocus

You might like to check if the A/M slider switch on the lens by the Nikon label is set to A.
It sometimes gets moved accidently.
Set to M the lens will not autofocus.

Putting it back together

In 1965 I did the same thing with a Nikon single focal length lens my F Photomic. This lens was far more simple then a modern AF zoom lens. I had to bite the bullet and pay a camera repair man to fix the lens. He told me that had I not tried to fix the lens myself, the repair would have cost 1/4. The only answer to your question is to take it to a camera repair man and get a quote. I would check the quote against the price of your lens on E-bay and use that to determine if you want to fix your lens or replace it.

By the way, it is very rare for dirt between elements to be so problematic that it results in a degradation of picture quality.
