Question about Nikon 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom Nikkor Lens
Hello I recently took it upon myself to dissassemble my perfectly working nikon nikkor 18-70mm ed lens to clean it and now i dont know how to put it back together. When i put it together like i think i took it apart it makes a chirping sound coming from the motor ring and the AF moves from one extreme to the other. Please help me it seems nobody knows how to put this thing together thank you..
In 1965 I did the same thing with a Nikon single focal length lens my F Photomic. This lens was far more simple then a modern AF zoom lens. I had to bite the bullet and pay a camera repair man to fix the lens. He told me that had I not tried to fix the lens myself, the repair would have cost 1/4. The only answer to your question is to take it to a camera repair man and get a quote. I would check the quote against the price of your lens on E-bay and use that to determine if you want to fix your lens or replace it.
By the way, it is very rare for dirt between elements to be so problematic that it results in a degradation of picture quality.
