As far as your focus is happening htere is no case to worrry. If the camera is set to auto focus then while you point if the focus is set right , you can just ignore this case. However if the focussing is not perfect it is possible that there could be some dust dirt or sand particles in the system which incidentely must be looked into by opening the camera. the click could be that the focus is falling in line and as such need not worry much. Use the manual focus to extremes and try a gentle tap to get any such foreign particles out of the system. I would advice not to open the camerra unless there is a serious focus fault. Otherwise continue to make use for the best. Good day

Nikon D90: Won't focus properly in automatic mode


Make sure the subject is well lit. The autofocus relies on differences in contrast to determine proper focus. Move to a well lit area or add additional light and attempt again.

Make sure the aperture ring on the lens (if that lens has one on it) is set to minimum (highest number - f22 etc.) This value it often a different color ink than the others to help speed locating it. On most Nikon & compatible lenses, when the aperture is set to minimum, the camera's main & sub command (thumb and finger) dials will control the aperture and shutter speed. When the shutter is held down 1/2 way, the aperture will open fully (to allow the most light in and speed composition) and then automatically stop down to the commanded value when fully depressed for the exposure. If you have the aperture set on the lens to something different - it may be preventing sufficent light from entering and interfere with the autofocus function.

Good luck!

I dropped two of my lenses and I thought everything was fine. But when I take the picture i can't tell what I'm focusing on. Also, when I take a picture my lens makes a squeaky/scratchy noise.


Lenses have precision mechanisms and alignment of lens elements. If damaged, you should have them serviced by factory authorized repair centers. A lens damaged due to falling or impact will not be covered by warranty - however if under warranty and the work is performed by an unauthorized party, the remainder of any warranty will likely be void.

If the lenses are Nikor or Nikon, you should check the Nikon Service and Repair page. You can get an estimate by providing the information requested on that page.

I chose an "AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f3.5-5.6 ED VR" (your lens may be different) and listed it as dropped an got an estimate of $199 for repair.

I hope this helps & good luck!

I set this "Nikon 105mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor Lens" or tried to set it to F2.8 in full manual mode. the F-Stop wandered from F2.8 to F3 / F4.5 depending on where i pointed the lens. I...


You have described Aperture priority mode: you set the f/stop and the shutter speed changes to make the exposure correct.

Full manual mode requires you to set both the shutter speed and the f/stop. You are seeing the recommended f/stop for the shutter speed you have selected.

Got my Nikon d90 for 3 months now,but encountering error problem with my Nikon D90 w/ 18 105 vr lens.sometimes when i'm ready to shot it appears on the Top LCD,error F--,..Pls. help guys...Thanks


This is a common problem with this camera/lens conbo. I "solved" it by removing the lens, then reinstalling it - but hold the lens release button down, and rotate the lens a nuber of times (in the camera body) before releasing the button. It appears that the issue is poor electrical contact between the lens and camera body. If there is a poor contact, the camera will not know if thereis a focus and will lock the shutter release. With this poos contact, the camera will only fucntion in manual mode

Hope that this helps

I believe you're hearing the VR in the lens adjusting. Try turning the VR off and see if you hear the sound. If not, then you have a normal operating lens.

Lens will not open up all the way


Is the maximum available aperture dependent on the focus distance? Many macro/micro lenses "dim" slightly as you focus in close.

See if you get 2.8 focused at infinity.
