Question about Nikon Nikkor 55-200mm f/4.5-5.6 G AF-S Lens
I bought a Nikon D40x with the 18 - 55 and the AF-S DX 55-200 Nikkor zoom. Yesterday, mounted the 55-200 in the camera and noticed a very strange noise while focusing and then the front part of the lens came out. I handle my camera carefully and keep it in the Nikon camera case that came with the kit. It seems the lens came out of place without any broken parts. Any hints as why this happened and if there is any posible way of fixing it?
I just had the same exact problem! However, in my case I was finishing up a photo shoot at work, went to switch lenses, and when I picked up my 55-200mm zoom lens, the tip of it fell off!! I was able to put it back into the end of the lens, but now I am having the same autofocus problem and sound effect. I think it is because it is off track inside the lens. But I have only had mine for 5 months! I'm preparing to send it to Nikon for warrenty repair.

My solution is to use a upgrade camera. I have a D300 and have no problem with the 55-200 1:4.45G ED
