Do you have autofocus set on the body? If so, that locks the focus ring on the lens.

I bought the new Tamron 20-200 lens and after trying it on my Canon 7D non of my lenses will focus on that camera. What has happened?


Sure you did not switch to manual focus while testing the Tamron? Sure all settings are correct?
If the Tamron still auto focusses on you 7D, check the forums about this. I know Nikon sometimes messes up the firmware, when a non Nikon lens is used, but not on all camera's. And not with every firmware.
I don't know the 7D enough to check more details, but check everything about the AF settings. I can't imagine your lens did something wrong with the camera.

This s3000 will not focus it has been used very lightly over the past year and has had problems focusing sharply for months. Any ideas?


I don't know exactly what might have happened, Nikon use a lot of plastic in there (lens) so maybe something stripped, chipped, or slipped out of alignment. If youre in the US, you have a 5 year warranty on your lenses (if dont mistake me).

Additionally, coudl check this articles for some clues:

Hope helps.

Whenever I try to take a picture using "auto focus" option with my Nikon D40, (using the standard lens that came w/the camera), it makes a clicking sound and will not auto focus. But if I use it...


This camera focuses the lens by sending an electronic signal to it. If you hear a clicking sound, the lens is receiving the signal, but not responding. I suggest you take the camera & lens to a local photo store & ask if they could let you mount another lens on the camera to see if THAT one works; if so, the problem is with your lens. A repair might cost as much or more than the purchase of a new lens (I'm assuming you have the "kit lens," which is the 18-55 mm lens) -- Amazon.com offers this lens for $100.
This is a wonderful camera; I use this with the same lens, and the D7000 with a larger zoom so I don't have to change lenses in the field. It's simple to use, does a great job. Only drawback I find is I can't use it with the older auto-focus lenses that need the focusing motor in the camera instead of the newer ones that focus in the lens, as yours does.
Probably worth repairing if it's the camera, but it sounds to me as if it's the lens that's giving you the problem.
Hope this helps!

I bought a nikon n55 camera body from ebay..not realizing it was just the body, of course! I then purchased a digital .45x wide angle lens with macro hd. But I still don't have all the parts I need, and...


If you have the N55 body, then all you need are at least one lens (almost any lens with a Nikon mount built in the last half-century will fit on it, except for the newer DX lenses which will cause vignetting), film (35mm), and batteries (two type CR2 lithium cells).

Optional accessories include (but are not limited to) a neckstrap, camera bag, filters, and more lenses.

The digital .45x wide angle adapter will not do you any good with the N55.

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 d40 autofocus


This happened to me once on a D70... When mounting the lens, make sure it clicks in all the way when turning counterclockwise. Also it may be worthy to note that both the lens AND the camera must be set to autofocus mode ("A" switch set on both lens and cam).
