Question about Nikon 17-55mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom Lens

2 Answers

Nikon 17-55mm I hope you can help me on that one! I just bought the Nikon 17-55mm on ebay, and it seems that when I use it with my D2H and SB800, the SB800 stays on 40mm mark all the time, no metter what focal length I zoom into. Also, when looking on exif file, it just says that I shoot the photo on 38mm, no metter if I shot on 17mm or 35mm etc.... How can this be repaired, and how much does it cost? Should I return this lense? Kindest Regards Filip O.

You might try cleaning the lens contacts lightly with an eraser. Make sure they are all springy to the touch. If this doesn't solve the problem, then new circuitry may be required.

I don't think it is possible to diagnose this problem, so this is just a suggestion.  After checking out your website, I'm pretty sure that you know how to work your equipment so I think the usual dribble about making sure the flash isn't on manual, etc.  Well, that wasn't the suggestion, this is.  Take a cotton swab and clean the contacts on the lens with isopropyl alcohol. If the cause of your problem is a bad contact, that should take care of it.  If it doesn't work, I'd send the lens back straight away - because if this doesn't work, then who knows what is going to go wrong next.
Good luck

Lens problem


hello,your particular problem sounds,back to front,are you sure your camera is working perfectly? are you able to meter manually?is it an all auto exposure/auto everything?because by design an aperture of say F4.5 is pretty much wide open to allow maximum light in,so depending on what shutter speed you select(if your able to,manual settings on camera?) so as you progress through the F stops,the higher the number,the smaller the aperture,so henceforth you are letting in smaller amount of light in,because from 1 setting to the next,you either halve or double the amount of light that enters the lens.do have a close look through the front element of the lens to see if the aperture is actually corresponding to what your settings are on the camera.hope that helps,cheers.

I have a NIKON DX AF-5 Snikkor 18-105mm lens 13'5-5'6 GED lens That will come off the camera after being attached. Another lens AF-S Nikkor 70-300mm stays on. I dropped camera from 2 ft...


It seems like you've got a broken lens mount on the 18-105mm. Take a look at the backs of the two lenses. You should see the bayonet mount with three flanges. If one or more of the flanges on the 18-105mm are broken then the lens won't stay on.

If you feel up to doing the replacement yourself, you can order the part from

Otherwise have a trained technician replace the mount.

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.

I have just bought a Nokon/AFNikkor 50mm F1.4 lense from ebay and it does not have a serial number on it . it just says made in china and the number 10 .is it fake?


If it says "Nokon" then it's most certainly a fake. All Nikon AF lenses have a serial number on the bottom of the barrel, near the mount.

I have the exact same problem


If your lens has an aperture ring, do note that most of these lenses require the ring to be locked at a certain position for it to work. In the course of using the lens, you may have accidentally unlocked the aperture ring and moved it out of position. This is a common problem.

To fix this error, try this:

1. Turn off camera
2. Turn the aperture ring clockwise and then lock it
3. Turn on the camera

If you still encounter the same problem, repeat the same steps but turn the aperture ring counter-clockwise. Hope this helps.

It sounds like a CPU chip incompatability issue. Sigma has that problem sometimes but are usually very good about rechipping at no cost (at least for Nikon-mount lenses). What did they say when you asked them?
