This is a good lens, barring any drop damage, try cleaning the contacts on both the lens and the camera body with a q-tip and a rubbing alcohol. Of course, double check the AF/M settting on the lens and camera (i've bumped to the off position B4 and not realized)

good luck!

Is adding grip for nikon d5100 solve the problem of auto focus with sigma 170-500 lens


No. This lens lacks an autofocus motor, relying on the camera to have one. The D5100 lacks an autofocus motor, relying on the lens to have one. Adding a battery grip does not change this situation.

The D5100 only autofocuses with lenses having an internal autofocus motor. Nikon designates such lenses AF-S, Sigma calls it HSM. Lenses without the motor will only autofocus with the larger and heavier Nikon cameras such as the D7000.

The lens will work with any Nikon film SLR, including the FG-20. However, the FG-20 is not an autofocus camera. Whether the lens is capable of autofocusing or not, you'll still have to focus manually. With a newer autofocus camera, such as the N75 and N80, the lens will autofocus.

What digital nikon cam works autofocus in a nikkor micro AF 105mm f/2.8D?


This lens lacks the autofocus motor, so it will only autofocus on cameras with the motor. This lens will autofocus on every Nikon digital SLR except for the D40, D40x, D60, D3000, D3100, D5000, and D5100. It will autofocus with the D1 family, D2 family, D3 family, D50, D70, D70s, D80, D90, D100, D200, D300, D300s, and D700 (I hope I haven't left any out).

Which Nikon S.L.R. cameras can I use my 70/300mm AF-S Nikor and still maintain auto focus, it is currently on a D40x


Every one (assuming the camera supports autofocus in the first place, of course--old film Nikons didn't). The lens has an autofocus motor, so the camera doesn't need one.

Film Nikons supported autofocus starting with the N2000. (Actually, the F3 also had autofocus capabilities, but used a different system). All the digitals support autofocus.

Just bought a new eos d600 . How do I turn on the autofocus?


Set the autofocus switch on the lens to AF. Press the autofocus button on the camera (right on the cursor pad) to bring up the AF mode. Use left/right or turn the command dial to select the desired autofocus mode and press SET.

It's in the "Changing the Autofocus Mode" in the manual (page 83 in my copy).

Reset.

Press and Hold the INFO button near the trigger and 'I' button at left side bottom for few seconds. Once the information appears on the LCD screen, your autofocus should be working.

Orelse, carry it to an authorised service centre.

That lens is not an AFS type lens. The D40x camera only uses AFS compatible lenses. You could still mount and use it in M, but it will never give you autofocus or TTL flash.

Can't autofocus Nikon 50mm f1.8 lens


The lens has an autofocus motor, but because it is an older model, it will not autofocus for the D40(x), D60, or D5000, which have more stripped down components. I advise you exchange the lens for the newer model, or return the D5000 and get the D90 for just a bit more.
