    For some reason, my Nikon 18-55mm lens, stopped auto focusing and I can't manual focus. It's like it is stuck.When I try to auto focus with it, it makes sound that sounds kind of like a squirrel...lol.

    Does anyone know why it is doing that?

    Its a cheapo kit lens, buy a decent one or get it sorted/replaced if still under warranty. H

    If your lens has a USA warranty, and you're the original owner, it is covered for 5 years from the date it was purchased.

    The warranty doesn't apply if the lens shows evidence of abuse.
