Question about Nikon D40x Digital Camera
I have had my 2nd Nikon d40x since August. I had to return the 1st one due to the same problem that I am having with this one. I used this d40x all Fall to take beautiful pictures of my sons baseball team. I pulled it out to use it again for the Spring Season and the lens is sluggish to focus and makes a clicking/grinding sound. Since this is the second time this same thing has happened I am concerned that the lens gets dirty easy. I took it to a local camera store and they took a look into the camera body and thought it looked clean. Has anyone else had this same problem? At this point since it is under warranty I am sending it to Nikon to check out. I am concerned that this is going to happen again since I use it at the ball fields where there is always dust. I have never dropped the camera or lens or have changed the lens other than at home or in a protected environment.
It sounds like a lens problem, not the body's. Have you tried it with another lens? If you don't own any lenses, go to a camera store and ask to try out one of their lenses, if the problem goes away then you know what is causing it. The lenses usually have 5 year warranty.
P.S. You should consider the option of buying another lens for the baseball games that has high zoom and VR.
