Unable to remove lens - does not rotate completely


Did you press the lock/release button complete and did you hold it till the lens was rotated complete? You know the lens with Nikon goes the other way as with Canon?
Looking to the front of the camera you have to rotate the lens clock wise on a Nikon. Counter clock wise on a Canon.

Hi dear rybba, you can use the 50/1.8 D in any Nikon camera only what for this model of camera you must rotate the aperture ring to the bigger f number ( 22 ) and lock in this position ( read printer material included in lens box).
Will also have to focus manually but the AF LED in the viewfinder will help you for sharp focus.

On a new Nikon 18-55mm AF-S DX Zoom - Nikkor f/3.5-5.6 lens and a Nikon 55-200 mm AF-S DX Zoom f/4.56 lens is VR also included and standard?


Nikon currently lists two 18-55 AF-S DX and two 55-200 AF-S DX lenses. One in each pair has vibration reduction, the other does not. The ones with VR in the name have it, otherwise it doesn't.

VR isn't exactly an option. If it wasn't built into the lens initially, you can't add it later. A lens either has it or it doesn't, though if a lens has VR it can be switched off.

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

Assuming that you've already tried a good firm hand on the zoom ring then all you can realistically try is to give the lens a few good firm slaps onto a desk to try and free up whatever has gone wrong. Brute force usually sorts them out, but it is "kill or cure". This lens lacks a macro mode, so this is not the usual simple case of adjusting a lens control and then slapping your forehead with embarrassment...

The lens is otherwise uneconomic to repair as it's one of the cheaply built kit lenses and so you can easily obtain another for less than the cost of repairs.

Nikon dx swm 18-55 mm


This is a very common problem. It sometimes happens without cause, sometimes by tightening or removing a filter. There are a couple of keys that keep the front lens from rotating while zooming that are very thin and easily bent. They have to be removed and straightened, and the rear piece you see floating has to be reinserted. It's about a $40 job and half-an-hour by a local independent repair shop. Expect to pay Nikon twice that.
