It seems to be a problem with the internal working of the camera its self. I have requested a replacement fro my seller. Thank You Samuel

Hi I have a Nikon d200 and with a Sigma 50mm Macro AF 2.8. The lens is a few years old. and it's the first time I tride it on the d200. I can't get the autofocus working, is the lens not compatibel withe...


I'm assuming this lens worked on another Nikon camera before and that the lens mount is for Nikon cameras. Make sure the aperture ring is set to "A". Clean the contacts on the lens and camera body where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Trouble shooting in auto focus


Maje sure you lens it not set to manual focus and that the lens is mounted correctly. Also - FWIW - shoot with a fast shutter speed (1/250 or better) to avoid blur.

Very soft focus on D200


Hi Amanda, welcome to FixYa.

Try this to fix your focusing issue. It's a custom AF setting.
Press the Menu and select the pencil icon. Then you'll see Custom Setting Menu on the LCD display. Click down to Autofocus and then click to the right.
There are 3 choices here: FPS Rate, FPS Rate + AF, and Focus.
Set it to Focus.
FPS Rate is the default setting, the camera will take 5 frames per second whether it's in focus or not.
FPS Rate+ AF forces it to slow down hoping to get more frames in focus.
Focus sets the camera to fire only when in perfect focus. It slows you down some, but it will save you from deleting all the blurry ones.

Try this and let me know if it works for you with a comment.

Ken Rockwell has alot of tips and tricks (including the one I just gave you) in a pdf telling all about your camera. You can read it here. http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/d200/users-guide/d200-users-guide.pdf

Nikon D200 refuses to auto focus with any lens it just doesn't do anything.


Does the camera body has a M/AFswitch? it would be located in front on the left side if that accidently gets changed to M your lens will not AF any more until you change it?? I know it sounds so simple but who knows!! Barry Brown

Prime lens


make sure the aperture ring on the lens is set to the minimum aperture number, (usually a orange colored number), i.e. f22,f32

Trouble auto focusing


If it's any consolation, I have the same setup and the same problem. I'm now at the point where I'm probably going to have to return the lens as faulty, but there are a few things it could be on yours which you might want to check.

Have you got the D200 set to auto-focus? The selector (on the front of the camera, on the lower left) should be in the S position (as opposed to C or M).

Have you got the lens set to auto-focus? It should be in the M/A position, rather than M.

Have you tried cleaning the contacts? Pop the lens off and give the contacts a clean with the appropriate equipment. Dust on the contacts could be causing a problem.

Failing that, have you tried turning the camera on and off a few times?

I've obviously tried all the above on mine, and now suspect I've got a faulty lens that needs fixing ... which really sucks! Good luck with it, let me know if you get it working.

Nikon D200


My first question would be what lens are you using - some lenses have auto stability features - please post lens make, type, model number and when you purchased it.

D200


Do you mean that you turned off auto focus on the shutter button? The manual will tell you where to find the appropriate custom setting. It's Menu > custom setting menu > a Autofocus > a6 AF activation.

Hope this helps.
