Sorry to hear about your nifty 50 lens problems. The auto focus motor might have given out and needs repair. You should be able to focus manually with the lens.

Nikon Nikkor 50mm F/1.4 D SIC AF will not auto focus anymore after drop


Hi Bob.
This lens does´nt have an internal focus motor, this only works with an in-camera focus motor. So, if it is stuck after drop, there is a bend over the focus barrel. This means the manual focus will not work neither. If manual focus works normally, there an electronic problem at the PCB (broken element).

Sigma lens manuals


Chuck, sorry for the late response. Last days I had to work through several hundred anonymous questions. Most irrelevant and not complete, so I could not answer most of them, but I had to read them all.
Sigma, does not have a service, where you can download a manual. But the manuals from Nikon, most of the time don't tell anything about how to use the lens.
I found a page with all specs. The link is down here.

I have to guess why you did put the question here in the first place. I think because you have a Nikon camera without a focus motor. Like a D3x00 or the D5x00 or a D40 or D60. (for the x you can add 0 1 2 or 3)
If you have one of these camera's the lens can't be used with auto focus You only can use the lens in manual focus. Most other camera's from Nikon, like D80 D90 D7000 D300 and more expensive, all do have a focus motor and can work with this lens in full automatic focus mode.

I have a Nikon D40x and purchased the AF nikkor 50 mm f/1.8D lens a couple years ago, but find that it can only be focused manually. Is there any way to "turn on" the autofocus? I have not had...


Sorry, but the D40x lacks an autofocus motor, depending on the lens to have one. Nikon calls such lenses AF-S. This particular lens does not have such a motor, relying on the camera to have one. The only 50mm lens currently available with an autofocus motor is this one:
http://www.nikonusa.com/Nikon-Products/Product/Camera-Lenses/2180/AF-S-NIKKOR-50mm-f%252F1.4G.html

Earlier this week the Nikon web site listed a new 50mm F1.8 lens with an autofocus motor, but then it was removed. Hopefully they will officially announce this lens soon.

I got this lens (Nikon AF NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4D) for my D3100 and it doesn't autofocus. I don't knowhow to intervene since there's no switch on the lens itself (because I understand it is small and it doesn't...


The D3100 can't autofocus with this lens. The D3100 does not have a focus motor, depending on the lens to have one. The AF-Nikkor 50mm doesn't have a focus motor, depending on the camera to have one.

To autofocus, you need lenses designated AF-S.

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

Nikon auto focus lens not working, only in manual


What camera body? This lens doesn't have an internal focusing motor and thus will not autofocus on the D40/D40x/D60/D5000/D3000.
