If lens has aperture ring, set to min aperture before mounting (f22 etc)
With heavier lenses it is not so easy to tell when lens clicks in all the way to mount, Lens wont autofocus if not clicked in to mount just so. Also both camera and lens should be set to AF.

    Just a note as well, try different metering modes, matrix, centerweighted. spot. Not all lense can do all modes. Check AF/S or AF/C is set and try not using closest subject focusing.

Hi I have a Nikon d200 and with a Sigma 50mm Macro AF 2.8. The lens is a few years old. and it's the first time I tride it on the d200. I can't get the autofocus working, is the lens not compatibel withe...

I'm assuming this lens worked on another Nikon camera before and that the lens mount is for Nikon cameras. Make sure the aperture ring is set to "A". Clean the contacts on the lens and camera body where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

I have a Nikon D200 and the auto focus isn't working on any of my lenses. What should I try?

There's a small contact area that has to make the electrical contact between the lens and body in order for the autofocus to work. Check this on the body for any damage or corrosion that may keep the connection from happening. There is also a very small mechanical connection between the two pieces - the D200 has the autofocus motor in the body itself - check for a small shaft that may be blocked or damaged as well.

Error 11 at nikon camera

First, if you can try the lens on another camera body, please do. See if the same thing happens on a different camera body. If it does, it's a problem with the lens. If not, you need to look at the camera. You can verify it's the camera by placing a different lens onto the body and see if you're experiencing the same problem. If it is indeed the body, I would suggest you take a pencil eraser and gently but firmly clean the contacts located on the lens mount. It's my experience (I also shoot with a D200) that often times when a lens isn't autofocusing, it's due to direty contacts either on the lens itself or the camera body. Cleaning them is a good start though and will narrow your issues down to the lens or the camera body. After cleaning, try the lens again to see if it's working correctly. If not, send it to Nikon in New York for repairs.

Nikon 18-200 mm vr lens not auto focusing on my nikon d200

lets start with the basics, try hard reseting it and try again, if that doesnt work then
try upgrading your firmware (if possible on your camera) and if that doesnt work then it may be the lens, but dont forget to spend a few hours trying to find a option for it in the meny

Lens will not open up all the way

Is the maximum available aperture dependent on the focus distance? Many macro/micro lenses "dim" slightly as you focus in close.

See if you get 2.8 focused at infinity.
