AF not working on Nikon D80

Hi,
I have a Nikon D80 which I bought last year with the 18-55 kit lens and it was working fine until today. I bought a Nikkor 60mm AF and a Sigma 15mm FE AF. I changed it initially to the Nikkor 60mm, and it works fine. When I tried the Sigma, suddenly, it wouldn't AF. I tried changing it back again to the other lenses, and it won't AF too. I reset the camera, but it still won't work! Please help!
Thanks.

    My Nikon D80 has stopped auto-focusing with the AF-S Nikkor 18-200 1:3.5-5.6 G ED after 1 1/2 years of use. I tried cleaning the electrical contacts.

Problems using Nikkor AF 35-70mm F3.3-4.5 with Nikon D80?


The sensor on the D80 is smaller than a piece of 35mm film. This means the camera will only use the center portion of the image cast by the lens. This reduces the angle of view, effectively increasing the focal length. The 35-70mm will give you an angle of view similar to a 52-105mm lens on a film camera. Likewise the 70-210mm lens will give you an angle of view similar to a 105-315mm lens.

My 18-135mm lens on a D80 will not autofocus. My other lenses are fine so it is not the camera?


In AF-S mode, the camera will not shoot until it acquires focus. Look on page 29 of the D80 manual. If that does not help you. Then contact Nikon they will be able to walk you through some steps to see if there is something wrong with the lens. Nikon digital 1-800-645-6689

Iris failure with AF-S Nikkor 18-135mm lens. The iris parts have separated and are visible looking through the lens from the body end.Db0 works fine with another lens.


Hi randywaterer, sorry to hear about the iris. That lens must go to Nikon for repairs. There is nothing you can do to fix it. Sending it to Nikon they will also do a complete CLA as well.

Can i use a Quantray AF LD 70-300 mm lens with my nikon d80? Thanks.


That depends. If the Quantaray lens has a Nikon mount, then yes, no problem, it'll work on the D80. If it has a different mount, then it won't fit onto the D80.

Tamron 28-300mm Model 185D Auto Zoom on Nikon d40


Autofocus function on the D40 only supports lenses with the
AF-S feature, which have an autofocus motor built into the lens,
instead of using an autofocus motor drive built into the camera.

The Tamron lens you have, does not have a built in motor and
the autofocus function relies on the motor drive in the camera.

It will not work with the D40 or D60, but it will work with other
Nikon digital SLRs, such as the D80. Need to get an AF-S
type lens or upgrade to different Nikon digital SLR. Unless
you do this, you will have to manually focus the Tamron lens.

All of the Nikon DX (for digital) series lenses are also AF-S
type, so they will work with the D40, which is designed as
an entry level digital SLR, therefore it is intended primarily
for use with DX lenses, which are typically sold in a kit with
the D40. Most common one is Nikkor 18-55mm DX AF-S.

Other Nikon AF-S lenses made for film cameras (FX type)
will also work with the D40, but these tend to be expensive
professional models. DX series lenses tend to be more
affordable. You might consider the 18-200mm DX AF-S
as an alternative to the Tamron, but these are not cheap.

Nikon Auto focus problem with the 18-135 KIT lense


I had this problem and just realised it today. I found out that it was a a settings problem. What I had done without realising was I had my "AE-lock" button functioning as "AF-ON" which meant that my autofocus would only turn on when I held the shutter half-way and pressed that button. Once I turned this function back to its original state of "AF-Lock" as opposed to "AF-ON", it worked fine.
My symptoms were: • soft mechanical noise when holding the shutter (i thought it was trying to focus but couldn't. I thought the mechanics for the AF were faulty) • Couldn't take photos unless they were in the set conditions (which makes sense because it was locked on a certain setting until I pressed the AF-ON button).
My camera is only a few months old so I wasn't convinced it was faulty/broken. Make sure you test all of your settings and go through each of them before you chalk it down to equipment error.
Hope this helps.

Nikon D80 auto focus


I had the same problem but then I realized the lens was not "in" all the way.  It had not clicked into place when I changed lenses.  This might work for you....it did for me.
