Problems with Nikon Telephoto AF-S Nikkor 600mm f/4D ED-IF I Autofocus Lens - Black?

Has any one had a problem with nikon 600 f4 ED-IF 1 autofoucus lens.
Problem is with the circuit board. An intermittent problem when you put the lens on a Nikon camera and pust the shutter it usally focuses. You wait your 15 sec and the camers shuts itself off. Now when depressing the
shutter button ithe autofocus should kick in but mostly does not. seems to me it has hung up or something. You take the lens off and back on and it resets. Contacts and mount was replaced by nikon but they do not seem to know how to fix it.To me seems not a psysical thing that can be changed by tapping on the lens. Most likely the circits are not activated in on of the chips.

It sounds like the circuit board in the lens is intermittant or there is a bad connector contact internaly where the circuit board connects to the harnesses.

Trying to find a cold solder connection on a multi-layer circuit board with SMD technology componts is not usually very feasible and reliable.

A major cause of this type of failure is from humidity, and or banging or dropping the lens unit.

I would start by changing the circuit board and the connector assembly inside the lens. This is an expensive fix, but it is effective.

If you request the described repair and offer to pay the cost, I am sure they will do it.

Could you confirm that this is a G lens (without an aperture ring)? If so, try cleaning the electrical contacts on the back of the lens and in the lens mount on the camera.

Will a Nikon Sigma 70-210 work on my nikon D60??

Assuming the lens has a Nikon mount, then it will fit and work on the D60. Sigma makes lenses for a variety of cameras; a lens with a Canon mount, for example, will not fit onto a Nikon camera. However, the 70-210 is a rather old lens. Unless it specifies "HSM" it will not autofocus on the D60. The D60 does not have an autofocus motor, relying on the lens to have one. Nikon calls such lenses "AF-S" while Sigma designates theirs "HSM".
