Rubber focus ring can be purchased in ebay.
The rubber ring may be attached to the lens with glue. Use denature alchohol between the rubber and lens to remove the rubber ring. It can be stretched little. Once removed, clean any glue on the lens and stretch the new rubber ring and install.

Lock it at f/32. Autofocus lenses have a lock for smallest aperture (highest number) because that is wht the camera body expects. The lock won't engage at any other position.

SOURCE: Auto focus at full zoom not responding Nikon D80 with 18-200mm VR

Hi - I own this lens and it manually focuses at all focal lengths (hard to see at 18mm unless your subject is extremly close). You may need to get the lens checked. BTW - Mine was set as follows when I checked for you:

  • D80 was "on"
  • M/A
  • VR = Off
  • Normal (not Active)
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: nikon auto focus lens not working, only in manual

What camera body? This lens doesn't have an internal focusing motor and thus will not autofocus on the D40/D40x/D60/D5000/D3000.

Ford focus 2002, 2 litres, what is the function of the pick up coil


The pick up coil is located at the base of the distributor and plugs into the ignition module. The pick up coil's purpose is to sense or "pick up" the pulses of the distributor and tell the ignition module when to fire the spark plugs. The most critical part of the replacement of the pick up coil is to make certain you properly mark the orientation of the distributor to the engine block and the rotor to the distributor base. When you successfully make these markings, you will not need to check your timing when this job is finished. Keeping this in mind, here we go: You will need to purchase a replacement pickup coil and a rubber o-ring gasket that will replace the o-ring located where the distributor shaft enters the engine before you start this project.

My 400mm lens is so hard to slide out when I go to zoom what do I do


turn the 'lock/friction ring' (metal band just below the black rubber focusing ring) counter clockwise whilst holding the focusing 'ring' still. The friction/lock ring is used to prevent 'lens creep' when carrying the camera with lens pointing down, or using the lens when it is pointing down. Juust turn it until it applies the level of friction you prefer for operating the lens. If you have already tried this and it won't budge it may be the bearings are shot and you will need to contact a canon service centre for repair.

Hi, i have the Sigma 70-200mm for Canon EF and the manual focus don't work. The HSM works fine and focuses perfect, but if you choose MF, you can't rotate the focus-ring. Many greetings from Germany! Kai


Hi, not sure if you still have this issue. I have just decided to look into it again, as I had a lot of focus problems with my Sigma 70-200mm HSM lens. Since there is no Sigma support here in Beijing, I took a look - and fixed it.

Here is what I did: On the front of the lens barrel is the rubberised focus ring. This can be removed (gently ply it away from the barrel by sticking a flat bit (or plastic letter opener) between the barrel and the rubber grip. It will come not entirely loose, so you need to work your way around the lens. Keep doing that until you moved it about half way forward. At this point two fixing screws become accessible on the barrel below.

In my case, one of the screws had come loose and that blocked the focus ring from turning, as the screw was blocking rotation in the access hole on the barrel.

Hope this helps others. Simple to fix, if you know how.

I have a 28-200 sigma D nikon fit lens. In auto focus when you get to1.5 metre bottom focus it will not return to up focus . It will only up focus if you slightly turn focus ring back may be 1mm. It sounds...


If you take it to pieces, you will end up with a (hopefully complete) kit of parts which you will have to pay a repairer to re-assemble for you. Your choice.

Broken eyepiece, 1940s vintage 7x50 individual focus binocular. Need hard rubber or bakelite replacements. eyepiece threads onto brass adapter ring (1 3/16in outside, 7/8in inside)


Here in Melbourne, Australia I make these for people who need them. I also have a reasonable amount of stock generic ones. The question is not so much the size of the ring, but the thread size, the depth of the eyecup (depends upon the magnification) which sets your eye at the correct distance behind the eyepiece (eye relief) and the size of the central hole to suit the size of the eye lens. There would be other small engineering companies that could make one for you out of delrin.

My Tasco model 440, 7 x 50 binoculars, 1980 vintage needs new eyecups. Where can I find replacements. Bill


You'll need to measure your eyepiece in "mm". Also determine if your eyepiece has an outer ring the eyepiece will slip over. You can find eyecups/guards on Ebay. Search under Binocular Eyecup or Binocular Eye Guard. There are also eyecups under "rubber eyecups/rubber eyeguards" but alot of these are for Microscopes and may not fit. You will need to pay close attention to the mounting type and measurements.
