I just bought a Nikon
When the lens moves in an out it is TRYING to focus. In some conditions the auto focus gets confused. Move your field of few and press the shutter button down half way to lock in focus. Then move it back (to original view) and finish taking the photo (pressing down the rest of the way).
Hi my lens has trouble focusing on the objects and
Many lenses with small maximum apertures (in your case f5.6) have difficulty focussing in low-light situations. Doubt there is a problem, unless if happens in brightly-lit situations - try some test shots on objects out of doors in the sunlight, where there is plenty of visual contrast for the lens to focus on (window frames in a building, for instance).

Af-s nikkor 18-55mm lens not attached message
DO other lens work ok? DId it click into place? Try twisting it gently right and left to see if the warning goes away. If so, you have tolerance or dirt issues. A visit to your local camera shop might be helpful.
My Nikkon DX 18-55 Nikkor doest focus subject
hello,first off,please do read through the manual that came with the camera,and at first have it close by as you go through the basic's of turning on the camera to all the way to the medium-to-advanced level guidance from the manufacturer.what you do need to do is,simply leave any control's(buttons/switches etc)well alone,until you are quite conversant with their purpose.it may well sound obvious to the casual browser who happens to read through my notes,but they are important.with the focusing ring,it may well be ok,and not suffered any undue damage.when you have gained a little expertise with the various controls,aim your camera at a distant object,and focus there with the auto focus feature,keeping your finger on the button,have a look at the barrel,to see what distance scale it has rotated to,and see if it is approximately correct,or simply measure from that point with a builders tape measure.hope that helps, cheers.
18-55 Nikon lense does not auto focus.How do I see
This lens has an electrical motor inside to do the focusing. So a motor problem is a lens problem. when you mount the lens on the camera a number or electrical contacts are connected to the power supply in the camera body, this gives the electric motor it's power to operate. make sure all the little contacts are clean and that they push in and bouce back out on the lens mount area. You;ll see them there are usually 7-10 of these little silver colored contacts, they are spring loaded so the float in and out to make good contact with the camera body. If they are ok, then you needto make sure your camera or lens is not set to manual focus. I know this is elementary, but, hey, I've done it myself. both the camera and the lens need to be set to "auto " focus. the lens has a button on the side, should be set "M/A". the camera (depending on which nikon you have, will have a button on the front of the camera marked "C. S, M" or similar, some only have two settings. it needs to NOT be on "M" for manual focus. that should do it unless you have a repair problem with the camera of lens, it could be either.
Zooming from 18mm to 55m causes lens to darken
This is because the aperture varies with the focal length. Note the "f/3.5-5.6" in the lens designation? This means that the maximum aperture is f/3.5 at 18mm and f/5.6 at 55mm. If you set the aperture first and then zoom, the aperture could change by as much as one-and-a-third stops.To prevent this, zoom first and then meter the exposure.
Nikon 18-55mm lens will no longer zoom to 55mm.
there must be a problem with the lens ring which are fitted inside, occasionally it gets worn out because of improper handling . alignments may have caused you the problem. but once again you need a professional help because you wont get any elements or parts easily except from the company.this lens could also may have jammed due to any reasons, may be a foreign body or so and because the af is OK you are still getting a sharp image up to actual 45 mm which you think to be 55mm. If i were you then I would have inverted the lens and tapped gently and then check it once again or best goto Nikon service centers .
Aperture ring won't turn
When the camera is set to autofocus, let the camera do the focusing. If you want to focus manually, turn off the autofocus so you can turn the focusing ring.
Won't auto focus
Make sure the auto-manual focus switch on your camera is set to auto (A) and also make sure the auto manual focus selector on the lens is in auto (A) as well. If your lens contacts are dirty then this will affect the function of the lens as well. Clean those with either a lint free type cloth and alcohol or methylated spirits.
