Hi dear rybba, you can use the 50/1.8 D in any Nikon camera only what for this model of camera you must rotate the aperture ring to the bigger f number ( 22 ) and lock in this position ( read printer material included in lens box).
Will also have to focus manually but the AF LED in the viewfinder will help you for sharp focus.

Regards

Autofocus Lens for Nikon 70-300 1:4-5.6 AF25-166-4553 is mountable on a D3100?


You didn't specify the make of the lens. Assuming the lens has a Nikon mount then yes, it will mount on a D3100. The big question is whether it will autofocus on the D3100. The D3100 does not have an autofocus motor, relying on the lens to have one. Not all lenses do. Nikon designates lenses with an autofocus motor as AF-S. Other manufacturers use different designations.
If you need further assistance, feel free to reply to this post and give the make of the lens.

Tamron 200-500 mm f5-6.3 "lens not attached"


This lens lacks the electronics to communicate with the camera. You need to set the aperture to its smallest setting (as you've done) and switch to the manual exposure mode (turn the mode dial to M). You'll get no exposure assistance from the camera's light meter. You can use a separate light meter and/or adjust the exposure by reviewing your pictures.

How do i set wide angle on my nikon d3100


You don't "set wide angle." Wide angle is not a function of your camera, it is dependent on the lens you use on your camera. You need a lens with a low focal length such as 24 mm.

This could very well be a camera another consumer tried, found the problem and returned the camera. They resold it to you. Run, don't walk and return it.

I have a Nikon D3100 and want to buy a zoom lens 70-300.Please help I am confused is a Nikon AF Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4-5.6G compatible? And is it automatic focus?


That lens will work with the D3100, except for the autofocusing. In order to autofocus with the D3100, you need AF-S lenses, such as the AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED or the
AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR.

My Nikon 18-55 mm lens turns easy when zooming in, but is stiff when zooming out. There is no roughness in the movement that would suggest dirt.


hi there,

the zoom-rubber might have been loosen, so it moved too easy while you use it
you can fix it by contacting nikon representative technical support

thanks

On a new Nikon 18-55mm AF-S DX Zoom - Nikkor f/3.5-5.6 lens and a Nikon 55-200 mm AF-S DX Zoom f/4.56 lens is VR also included and standard?


Nikon currently lists two 18-55 AF-S DX and two 55-200 AF-S DX lenses. One in each pair has vibration reduction, the other does not. The ones with VR in the name have it, otherwise it doesn't.

VR isn't exactly an option. If it wasn't built into the lens initially, you can't add it later. A lens either has it or it doesn't, though if a lens has VR it can be switched off.

Does Tokina-12-24mmF/4Pro DX complies with Nikon-D3 FX Format


Barrel distortion like you describe can always be a problem, especially at ultra-wide focal lengths like yours at 12mm. Some of this can be compensated for in software... Adobe Photoshop CS2 and Elements do a reasonable job, IMO, Bibble Pro (www.bibblelabs.com) does even better, especially with the 3rd party plugins like Percy perspective correction. These are things we have to live with when we have smaller sensors and ultra-wide angle lenses. There is nothing wrong with your lens, you will probably find that this distortion is minimized if you use a longer focal length (say 14mm) and/or stop down the lens a bit.. try f8, wide angle lenses have huge depth of field.
