The lens control section around the setting of the 135 mm is not giving feedback to the auto focus section. It is possible that the transducers in this section can be giving an error due to a mechanical link issue or a break of contact on the 135 mm setting.
It will be best to have the lens section checked with good care to see if the motor drive also has slipped on the 135 mm section and is not driving the lens to focus due to a slip on the gear ring to focus. check the motor drive , check the mechanism and the connections.

What adapter do i need to make a vivitar 52MM wide angle lens work with a Nikon D-3000 with a 18-135MM lens?


I'm afraid this will not work.
The filter size from the Nikon is 67 mm. and your vivvitar had a 52 mm tread. The step down convertor from 67 to 52 will block to much to use the wide-angle convertor.
I think you still will see a wider part in the centre of the frame, but in the end, the vignetting that takes place, will leave you with only a part of the picture to use. What stays will be smaller than what you pick up with the lens in the 18 mm setting.

Just try what you see, when you just hold the vivitar in front of the lens and shoot a picture. Take care you don't scratch the front lens of your 18-135. put a cheap UV filter, when you want to test.
See you only have a circular picture with this test.

I have a 12-24 lens and only use it once a year, so if you don't have a special purpose for a wide angle, don't bother buying one.

Pro and cons of wide teleconverter lens


Great question! The Pros: -Gives you a wider angle of view on your built-in lens -Gives you the potential to have a shallower depth of field when you zoom in on an object. This is a lens effect which makes objects behind the subject appear less in focus than the subject in the foreground - can be a positive if you're trying to have a more cinematic-like effect
The Cons: -Apparent lens distortion around the frame edges. You'll notice a "bowing" effect happen. -Increased ability to have dust and scratches on your lens. Make sure both the front and rear element are clean! -Possible increase in light glare. If the sun is in the background, expect to see more lens-flare effects due to the lack of a lens shade, and the increased number of glass elements that the light needs to pass through.
Personally, I like having the wide angle adapter in my pro-sumer video camera kit because it gives me another option when I'm in close-quarters. If you can avoid lens flare, it will be great addition to your camera.

Nikon DX AF-SNIKKOR 18-55MM 1:3.5-5.6G11 ED auto focus don't work


If you're looking at the camera without a lens on it, there should be a little flat protrusion in the lower left. Make sure that it is protruding and not obstructed.

Auto focus does not work on the 135mm


hi i am sagha a camera repairer from mumbai, i have gone through such problems much oftenly,in your case i think it is the internal problem with the flex board inside the lens which is multitwisted on metal plate after prolonged use becomes stiff & brittle and creates hairline cracks on the pcb which in turn breaks the tiny tracks & leads to malfunction at 135 mm.

Lens for Nikon D60


I will try to help you, but please understand that my experience is with Nikon film cameras. Assuming that the D60 works in a manner similar to a Nikon 35 mm body and that Sigma macro lens work like Nikon macro lens, you should be able to determine the usable subject to lens distance by experimentation. First, make sure the lens is in the macro mode. To do this you must set the auto-focus mode control to the manual focus mode (see your manual). On Nikon lenses, you must first set the focus ring to infinity, then move slider switch, which has two positions marked; "normal" and "macro., to the macro position. You should now be able to rotate the focus ring to the macro range. Use the zoom ring to zoom in and out and focus with the focus ring. The the range over which the lens to subject to lens distance will yield an in focus image will be rather limited and in the range of an inch or so to 6 or 8 inches.

Need to find lense


I think the most prudent solution is to give up on the idea. What do you need that for? This lens already has a huge range of 28 .. 300 mm in film equivalents, and it is marginally useful at 300 mm. Whatever else you put on it will make it worse (less light, poor focus and aberrations). Similarly, at the wide end, while it is technically possible to add a wide-angle element to shorten the focal distance to about 20 mm, that will also result in a loss of light and poor peripheral focus, so you will be much better off taking 2-3 pictures and blending them whenever you need a wider angle. This lens is a miracle of optimization -- it already has the attachments you are contemplating, plus macro and super-macro. I don't think its range can be expanded any further without an unacceptable degradation of quality.

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.
