Question about Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED-IF AF-S VR DX Nikkor Lens

1 Answer

I just purchased the Nikon 18-200mm F/3.5-5.6 G ED-IF AF-S VR DX lens for my Nikon D40 on-line for a used camera store. I received it today and I don't think it works, but I wasn't sure. The zoom will not turn past 35mm is there something I can do to make it turn, it did not come with instructions and I thought it would be very similar to my other lenses, but nothing I do makes it go past 35mm, both on the camera and off the camera. Is it broken?

You are correct. The lens is faulty and there's nothing you can do to fix it as it needs professional attention. Contact the seller immediately to try and get a return authorisation and refund.

Nikon Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED IF AF-S DX VR Vs. Nikon Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED IF AF-S DX are they the same len or not? thanks, Ricky at rpotter@eatel.net


No. The VR lens has 15 elements in 11 groups, the other has 13 elements in 9 groups. This indicates that the two lenses have different optical designs. The main difference, however, is that the VR indicates "vibration reduction." This lens has motion sensors and tiny motors that move the lens elements to compensate for camera motion, producing clearer pictures when hand-holding the camera.

Gave a close look clean on my 55-200mm today. Received new Jul 14, 2010. Approx 1/4" from center, there is a small like 1/4" smear line. This is on the inside looking at front of lens. Line appearance...


It is usually not a good idea try to take apart a new camera lens by yourself - unless you're a professional. Better to take it to the dealership repair store and see if it really inside and if the lens has a warranty, try to get it replaced by the seller.

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.

Can Nikon D60 work with 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G Zoom Nikkor


Yes, it will work just fine. I have this lens and my father has basically the same camera (D40) and it works just fine with this lens.

Manual Focus won't work


Which camera are you using? If the body has AF/MF switch, put that also to MF.If this fails to help, take out the lens and try to change it to MF.
