That usually indicates that the lens is not communicating with the camera. The contacts on the mount side of the lens may be damaged or dirty. If cleaning the contacts with an eraser doesn't solve the issue, you might want to try another lens to see if the camera is at fault. If the camera checks okay with another lens, then it is likely the the lens needs a new circuit board

What digital nikon cam works autofocus in a nikkor micro AF 105mm f/2.8D?


This lens lacks the autofocus motor, so it will only autofocus on cameras with the motor. This lens will autofocus on every Nikon digital SLR except for the D40, D40x, D60, D3000, D3100, D5000, and D5100. It will autofocus with the D1 family, D2 family, D3 family, D50, D70, D70s, D80, D90, D100, D200, D300, D300s, and D700 (I hope I haven't left any out).

I have a Nikon D3100 and want to buy a zoom lens 70-300.Please help I am confused is a Nikon AF Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4-5.6G compatible? And is it automatic focus?


That lens will work with the D3100, except for the autofocusing. In order to autofocus with the D3100, you need AF-S lenses, such as the AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED or the
AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR.

Please tell me the best lens and flash for D3100 i m not a proffessional photographer and i rarely go to see wild animals in forest. I want to click family photographs and natural beauty


hi there,

i used d3100 a few months ago,
for your information this camera only support autofocus with built-in motor lenses
if you have interest on wildlife, you should use tele-lens whose focal length above 200mm
if Nikon lenses cost you too much, you can choose other lenses from Tamron, Tokina, or Sigma

for family photograph, the kit lens is able to do this (18 - 55mm),
for natural beauty, i myself use nikkor 50mm/f 1,8 which has great power in low light condition

hope this will help

I have a d80 and while I have a Nikon AE lens, I also have a collection of older Nikon lens's. They work outside but don't work with a flash. Can you tell me if there is any way to fix this problem?...


I found this in my D80 manual regarding non-cpu lenses and their limitations:

The non-CPU lenses listed below may be used, but only when the camera is in mode M. Selecting
another mode disables the shutter release. Aperture must be adjusted manually via the lens aperture
ring and the camera autofocus system, metering, electronic analog exposure display,

** and TTL flash control can not be used. **

Except where otherwise noted, the electronic range fi nder can be used with
lenses that have a maximum aperture of f/5.6 or faster.
• AI-modifi ed, AI-, AI-S, or Series E Nikkor
• Medical Nikkor 120 mm f/4 (can only be used at
shutter speeds slower than 1/180 s)
• Refl ex Nikkor (electronic range fi nder can not be
used)
• PC Nikkor (electronic range fi nder can not be
used when shifting or tilting lens)
• AI-type teleconverter *
• PB-6 Bellows focusing attachment (attach in vertical
orientation; can be used in horizontal orientation
once attached) *
• Auto extension rings (PK 11A, 12, 13; PN-11) *
* Electronic range fi nder can be used if maximum effective
aperture is f/5.6 or faster.

There is a great deal of info in the manual about the use of other compatible Nikon devices. If you have lost your manual, you can view / download it here:

Nikkor 70-300 lens wont autofocus on d60.. HELP!!!


There is a known defect in some of the Nikkor lens' that were manufactured during a certain time period. The same thing happened to my lens.. it stopped autofocusing for no reason at all. (It was purchased in May 08). I shipped it to Nikon and I received a new lens within 10 days of shipment. You have a 3 year warranty on the camera and the lens'. Nikon has AMAZING customer support when it comes to legitimate issues.
Go to the web site. Fill out a repair order and send the lens to them exactly as stated in the instructions. You will have a new lens within 2 weeks.

My AF-S Nikkor 55-200 lens will not take a picture in autofocus mode( D-40 camera). The motor will adjust the lens but the picture will not take. It will take a picture in manual mode The autofocus works...


Hi, I had this problem and found that the level inside the camera for the exposure shutter was bent inwards. This was preventing the lens from adjusting the exposure and also from autofocusing. To fix I just bent it back outwards
