    I have a Nikon D80 and that nifty Nikon IR remote. I am trying to get the camera to autofocus while using the remote with self-timer, but I just can't seem to get it to work. Anyone lending advice would be greatly appreciated. I am using the Nikon 18-200vr lens and both camera and lens are set to use autofocus.

    Thanks in advance for any replies.

    I tend to focus and compose first before hitting the button. I don't recall the D80 focusing before or after hitting the remote button.

    is AF enabled on the lens or body? If it is, it will focus. It might not lock on anything, but it will at least attempt.
