Question about Nikon 24-120mm f/3.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor (24 120mm f-3.5-5.6G, 24 120mm f 3.5-5.6G) Lens

24-120 Nikon VR lens "VR vibrating continuously"

Sounds like something grating. In the viewfinder the image is shaking continuously and the resulting image on shooting is blurred. The VR on/off switch is not working and it is not an autofocus problem.

Dark Viewfinder. The image results are dark too. It's been like this for two days. And I swear I did not do anything wrong. :(

If the image results are dark, the problem must be inside the camera. If you changed the lens something fell inside it and is blocking the light to the camera. You should check your nearest Nikon store and get it fixed because if you try doing it yourself you could damage the sensor permanently and destroy your camera completley.

I have a Nikon D3000 It's about 3 years old. It's recently been doing this thing, particularly with a 50mm lens on, where something appears to fall and the image through the viewfinder with da

I am assuming it is a TTL (Through The Lens) Viewfinder meaning a mirror, Prism and screen gives you the image. This is based on reality and not any settings. This question confuses me. If something gets in the way and the viewfinder darkens AND the image you take is dark this means there is something very wrong with the lens and possibly with the camera. The Viewfinder image is what bounces off a mirror and when you take the photo the mirror flips out of the way. What is left is the lens, some air space and the sensor. It may be that one of the aperture blades may be moving when it should not. I am close to saying send the lens in and ask for a quote..

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.

I can't tell the diff between VR and VR OFF with my Nikon 18-200 lens. Is there a foolproof way to tell if VR is functional?

Charles, I can save you the effort. The D200 lacks the menu item I suggested and will not show any symbols in the viewfinder or LCD to indicate which VR setting you have the lens set to.

But Ken Rockwell's guide to the lens has a big clue: VR takes a moment to stabilise, so you ideally need to half press the shutter release and wait a second or so before firing the shutter.

I don't want to plagiarise his excellent article, so instead suggest that you click here to read what the man has to say himself. He discusses the benefits of your lenses VR early in the article, but you may want to skip right down the page to the heading, "How to use the VR".

Ken has also created an excellent alternative D200 users' guide, click here.

Good luck, and please take a moment to rate my reply.

P.S. If the hotlinks don't work then the 18-200 lens review is at:-

Nikon Coolpix p80 blacked out, rounded corners

Have you attached some sort of lens shade to the front of the lens? The vibration might have something to do with the shake reduction system but I can't be sure. It certainly shouldn't vibrate heavily. You might get a better answer if you e-mail the tech guys at the support section of the Nikon website.

Just bought a Nikon D40 Camera and sometimes when I view pictures that have been taken, the pictures get distorted. Is this common or and easy fix. dee

Your pictures are most probably distorted because of camera shake.
If you invest in a Nikon lens with VR = vibration reduction or a Sigma hsm os = optical stabilization, this will allow you to shoot at slower speeds and will reduce camera shake.

The most obvious problem will be shooting in low light conditions without vr or os...this will give blurred images.You will need to up the iso and shutter speed with a wide aperture to achieve more stable images.
Bear in mind, when you raise the iso, you will get noiser images and the Nikon D40 does not handle noise very well - but can be eliminated with software.
Hope this helps.

Just bought Nikon D60. No matter what mode I use

looks like a viewfinder has an issue. If you have recently bought the thing just return it and get a new one. If not possible to replace , i recommend visiting Nikon authorised service center.
Could be something in the path of pentaprism.

My d40 has a image in viewfinder, will not take picture

It sounds to me that you are using an incompatible lens or a broken one. Does this happen with the lens that came with the camera?

Vibration Reduction not working

This feature is not an "end-all" to using a tripod for those razor sharp images. The VR may buy you one or two stops of light max. This may be enough in a pinch but invest in a tripod (a good one) for razor sharpness!
