Anyone have any ideas? My D90 Auto Focus only works with 55-200 lens but not AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G (although I can manual focus which works fine)

Is my 18-105 lens AF hosed?!? - I have already tried cleaning the contacts (don't want to spend too much on it...seems like it costs nearly as much to fix it as it would to replace it!) :(

Check the AF switch on the lens.

Sounds like one lens is broken. Have you any friends that use nikon cameras that would allow you try the 18-105 on their camera to confirm?

Does the lens try to focus and search but not achieve lock or does the AF-S motor not work at all?

That happened with my 70-200 a couple of years ago. I sent it to Nikon and they charged me 500.00 to replace the internal focus motor.

Might try cleaning the contacts on the lens. If your auto focus works with one lens then that verifies that it works the way it's supposed to and points to the lens in my opinion.
