Could it be that there is something stuck in the lens barrel? Possibly grit of some sort? I would suggest pushing the lens in gently until the front shutter closes, then try to power on again, if this works and the barrel extends try to inspect for dirt in the barrel and get it out.

When I am at 10mm I can not take a picture. I have to move the lens to 12 mm, why is that?

What are the other settings? It could be that you are in "auto" and the camera is not getting an autofocus lock. Try having the camera in one of the manual settings.

Could I get the 18-105mm G ED DX VR AF-S lens instead of the regular one of 18-55m F3.5-5.6G .. for Nikon D5000, this is my first professional camera.

The D5000 is not a professional camera, it's very much a low-end introductory consumer grade digital SLR aimed at first timers. It's a fine camera, but wouldn't last more than a few days at best in professional use.

The camera usually comes bundled with a "kit" lens, such as the 18-55mm. Like the camera, it's a cheap and cheerful model which is really intended just to get you started. It costs very little to make, and like the camera body it's not designed with longevity, servicing or repairs in mind.

But to answer your question, yes, you can buy the D5000 as a body only option without the kit lens and then add on whichever lens you prefer at extra cost. The 18-105mm has a longer zoom range so has more flexibility than the 18-55mm, but once again it's very much a consumer grade lens. You don't get anything for nothing, so in return for the additional zoom range in a lens which is of a similar grade to the kit lens you get poorer image quality and really noticeable barrel distortion at the wide angle (18mm) setting and pronounced pin cushion distortion at anywhere above around 24mm (click here). You can't avoid these distortions entirely as all zooms are a compromise, but the kit lens suffers far less than the 18-105mm and also has a better all-round image quality (click here). Again, not to professional standards, but more than adequate for almost all amateur users. To be fair, although the 18-105mm appears to be based on an older design and is totally unacceptable for any professional use, it also is perfectly adequate for most amateurs and is relatively good value at the comparatively low price it can be purchased for, but the Nikkor AF-S 55-200mm f/4-5.6 G ED DX is by far a better lens altogether and just happens to have very low image distortion across the zoom range. If you can get one, it's the ideal companion to the kit lens. Best of all, it's actually cheaper than the one you propose getting (click here and here for comparison)and offers a much more useful telephoto range.

Nikon DX AF-SNIKKOR 18-55MM 1:3.5-5.6G11 ED auto focus don't work

If you're looking at the camera without a lens on it, there should be a little flat protrusion in the lower left. Make sure that it is protruding and not obstructed.

AF is not working

I would start to diagnosis the problem as follows: When the lens functions properly and is on the camera, the lens aperture is forced wide open by a pin on the camera body pushing a lever on the lens that opens the aperture. As part of the sequence when you push the shutter button, the camera releases its pressure on the spring-loaded lever on the lens, allowing the aperture to close to the setting that the "computer" has determined as correct. You will find this lever on the outside of the black ring that surrounds the rear lens element. With the lens removed, find the lever and make sure that with the lens set to the smallest f-stop (largest number such as f22), sliding the lever counter-clockwise against the slight spring tension, the aperture opens wide and returns to f22 when released. If this is not the case, the problem is in the lens. If this works, then the problem is either in your camera body or in the alignment between the body and lens. Also, the electrical connection between the camera body and the lens is via the five little ball like metal contacts (4 together and one wider spaced) found on the black ring on which the aperture ring is located. If either these contacts or the contacts on the camera body are dirty, the automatic functions may fail. DO NOT use any liquid cleaner. Gently rub the contacts with a rubber pencil eraser, being very careful to hold the camera body or lens in a position that will allow any debris to fall downward away from the body or lens. Do not overdo it. If this does not get you on the right track, let me know what you find and we will proceed from there.

P.S.: Have you made sure you have fresh batteries in the camera?

If the "!ZOOM ERROR" message is displayed on the digital camera, switch the camera off and on again 2 or 3 times.
If this does not clear the error, take the camera to your nearest FUJIFILM Service Station for testing and repairs. Problem may caused by lens zooming gears stuck.
