Hey harleymomma,
If the d70 is set to AF-S mode focus has to be achieved for the shutter to be allowed to take the photo. In some exposure modes the aperture must be locked down on the smallest aperture. I would also make sure the contacts are clean that allow communication between the body and the lens. Of course you need to make sure the body and the lens are set to autofocus. If none of this works I would have it looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

What lens adapter is needed to mount the Kelda 500mm lens to a nikon d90


This lens has a T-mount. You'll need a Nikon adapter for the T-mount, like this one: http://www.adorama.com/RKT2AI.html

Be aware that the D90 will not meter with this lens, as it lacks the electronics to communicate with the camera. You'll have to shoot in the Manual mode with no help from the camera's light meter. And of course, it's a manual focus lens so the autofocus won't work.

I can get my 50mm lens to work with my d70 nikon.


If the lens has an aperture ring, make sure it is set on the largest f number. Make sure the lens is mounted fully on camera. Oherwise an AF 50mmm f1.8 lens should work on a D70 with no problem

I just bought the Tokina SD 12-24 F4 (IF) DX wide-angle lens for my D70, and it does not autofocus. I'm being told by the company I bought it from that i am past their 2 week return policy. Does this lens...


Only the MkII version of this lens has an autofocus motor built in, the MkI relies on a motor in the body of some Nikon AF SLRs to autofocus. The D70 does not have an inbuilt AF drive motor, so if you have the MkI lens then you can only use it in manual focus mode on your camera.

Nikon d40 wont autofocus


Your 28-90 AF-D lens can't autofocus with the D40, which requires AF-S lenses with a focus motor in the lens. Sigma lenses with "HSM" (HyperSonic Motor) in the name also have the focus motor.

Have you turned the lens aperture ring to the lowest value (32) and locked it with the little button thing?
