Question about Nikon 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom Nikkor Lens
my 18-70 's zoom mechanism has gone bad. It works, but makes a grinding noise when used. It was smooth for about a year. Is it bad? Can it be fixed by myself? is it going to cost me big $ to get it repaired.
Well i had the same issue and i just slammed it (carefully of course) on the desk and it started working.... does it still zoom or does it just click and grind? also try zooming in and turning the lens faster outward or the oppsite direction to see if you can jump it back into the correct place on the gears.... my best guess is that it got dropped or the kids sat on it... and it made the gears slip into a bad place....
