    I recently got a Nikon AF Nikkor 28-105mm lens and I love it. However, it is very difficult to get it perfectly focused when not using a tripod, as it will not auto focus when on my camera (Nikon D60). I was wondering if there is anything I can do about it without buying a new camera and if not, what cameras the lens can autofocus with.

    Here's a link to a review that has lots of pictures of the Lens:

    Nikon's AF Zoom Nikkor 28-105mm f/3.5~4.5D IF MACRO wide-telephoto zoom lens


    Thanks so much.

    Chances are it is operator error. Not to worry, there is help.....

    I'm so old that my birthstone is dirt. I don't trust my eyes anymore for focus, so AF is what works for me. My Nikon bodies have 51 focus points and I use the hell outta them.

    Just like an AF-S lens will illuminate the in-focus indicator in the viewfinder, so will the AF lens, when focus has been achieved.

    In other words, the only part of the AF system missing, is the focus motor. Every other part of the AF system is there and still does it's job.
