The first thing to do is make sure that the lens you purchased supports AF. If not that is the issue. If you have a lens that does support it then make sure in your camera settings you are either set on AI Servo or AI focus

Does the Nikon AF 70-300mm f4-5.6G Lens work with the Nikon D3100?


Yes, as long sa the lens can fit the bayonet. But it can't focus, because there are no AF motors in Nikon D3100 and AF 70-300mm f / 4-5.6 - G. And Nikon lens with AF is without AF motor. Lens marked with AF-S have focusing motor

Which is better to get - manual focus or AF extention tubes for Nikon D3100


AF tubes will let you focus manually, so you don't lose anything by getting AF tubes (except for additional money, perhaps). However, most close-up work requires manual focus anyway due it the very limited depth of field, so you won't gain much by getting AF tubes.

Personally, I've never missed the AF capability when using my manual tubes with my Nikons.

I have been given a 100-300mmF4.5-6.7DL Sigma lens but it will only work in manual focas AF but does work on a friends Nikon is that because my D40X has no AF motor.


That is exactly why the auto-focus (AF) does not work with that lens on this camera. The D40, D40X, D60, D3000, D3100 and D5000 lack an AF motor built into the camera. These cameras will require that the lens have the AF motor to work as expected.

You can review a complete list of lenses (as of 8/2010) that have a built in AF motor here.

Please rate this reply - thanks!

D90 AF assist light doesn't come one in M mode???


Check to see whether you're set for AF-C in M, A, and P modes. The AF assist doesn't light in AF-C. Auto mode automatically selects AF-S, so the AF assist would come on then.

I bought a used Nikon D60 from a friend, used it a


Christine

Is it a Nikon mount indeed. What a question!?! Couldn't fit any other mount on the camera!!! Just a guess here, the lens is probably not aa AF-I, an AF-S or a DX lens. The D60 has limited lens usage. The lens types mentioned are the only ones that fully work on the D60. It will work with G types as long as they are also AF-I or AF-S. AF and AF-D lenses will not auto focus. Hope this helps. Will

Autofocus on 300mm 2.8 IS not working with 50D


Make sure the AF/MF mode button on the lens is set to AF.
What focusing mode do you have selected in the camera? Single Shot, AI focus or AI Servo? 
If Custom Function "C.Fn IV -1 Shutter button/AF-ON button" is set to option 2 or 3, the AF will start when you press the AF-ON button.
I hope this help you!

Manual focus points 40D


Try checking C.Fn III, 3: AF point selection method. Yours might still be on option 2.

0: Normal - Works by pressing the AF Point button and then the Multi-controller.

1: Multi-controller direct - Press the multi-controller to directly select an AF point (without first having to press the AF Point button). Pressing the AF button reinstates all AF points for auto AF point selection.

2: Quick Control Dial direct - turn the Quick Control Dial to select AF points. In this mode, AF points will not be displayed on the LCD panel.
