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.

Does the nikon nikkor af 70-210mm telephoto lens fit on a nikon d3000?


Yes. The smaller sensor of the D3000 will make it the equivalent of about a 105-315mm lens on a 35mm film or full-frame digital camera. Also, the autofocus will not work with the D3000.

Lens has lost ability to autofocus.


Nikon guarantees 5 year warranty to original purchaser. If your camera functions with another AF-S lens, then the problem lies with the 18-200mm lens. The AF motor unit needs replacement. Nikon should be able to repair the lens under warranty.
Make a copy of your receipt and go Nikon website to start repair service.

Nikon 18-55 zoom lens doesn't autofocus


You might like to check if the A/M slider switch on the lens by the Nikon label is set to A.
It sometimes gets moved accidently.
Set to M the lens will not autofocus.
