Nikon DX 55-200mm lens

I just purchased a Nikon DX 55-200mm lens for my Nikon D80 on Ebay.As soon as attached it to my camera, it started making this scratchy noice and will NOT focus in Auto mode. It will however work properly in Manual Monde. I hope I am not being taken for a ride for this seller. Any ideas?

    My lense did the EXACT same thing and is currently in the shop at Nikon, under warranty thank goodness. Sounds like it is a pervasive problem with this lense in general. NOT a good sign.

Hi, I had this problem and found that the level inside the camera for the exposure shutter was bent inwards. This was preventing the lens from adjusting the exposure and also from autofocusing. To fix I just bent it back outwards

Hey Embroiteri,
I hate giving out bad news, but it sounds to me like your focusing motor is broken. I am of course going on the assumption you have the camera set to AF mode, and the lens still doesn't focus. In my experience with SLR lens is that if there are scratching or grinding noises when either focusing or zooming there is almost always something broken inside.

Sincerely,
Allan

I just purchased the Zeikos fisheye lense for my 50mm Nikkor lens and when I attach it, it doesn' take fisheye photos - just regular with some distortion around the edges... am I using this incorrectly?...


The 50 mm lens is a full frame lens, and the D80 is a DX camera. This means that the 50mm lens puts an image out that is bigger than what the D80 can "see". The good part of this is that the D80 (and most of the other Nikon DSLR's) use only the image from the center part of an older lens. The bad part is that if you put the fisheye filter on it, the fisheye effect that is mostly seen at the edges of the lens doesn't show up on the D80 sensor. If you could put the fisheye filter on a DX lens, it would give you the full effect.

Aperture stopped working on Nikon D80


This could be caused by dirty contacts between the lens and the camera body. Also could be a lens problem. Look at the small round contacts on the lens and the corresponding contacts inside the top area in the body (with the lens off). If they look dirty or discolored (should be silver and somewhat shiny) then clean up with a Qtip or VERY CAREFULLY with a clean pencil eraser. Don't get any eraser dust inside the lens or body. With a DX lens, there's not too much else that can go wrong, other than a lens problem.

Nikon D80 - My (built in) Flash will not pop up.


That is just a mechanical problem. There is just a little hook holding the flash and it retracts when you push the bottom to pop up the flash. I'm sure it can be easily fixed, never the less your camera store or Nikon should take care of it. So take it back to the place you bought it.

Camera will not focus...makes screaching noise in auto mode


Hi cham4017, It sounds as though the lens has grit or dirt or the like in the zoom. You could attempt to vacuum it however, I suspect it will need to go to Nikon for cleaning. I have mentioned this to others, the 18-55 is not well weather sealed as a pro lens is. Realize this is an inexpensive consumer lens. One major difference between consumer and pro lens is the weather sealing.
