    Re: Question Nikon AF 50mm f2.8 macro - stuck 3'- infinity How to change focus range

    If you have a good local camera repair shop, you might be able to get it fixed for less than the Japanese lens price. If not it might be worth emailing Kurt's Camera Repair here in San Diego. Their website is https://www.kurtscamerarepair.com/ and they have a great reputation.

    Question Nikon AF 50mm f2.8 macro - stuck 3'- infinity How to change focus range
    Nice shots Larry, its quality glass thats for sure. If you can get it fixed cheaply enough, would be worth the trouble.
    I got mine for $100, its rough but still takes good photos, its probably my most used lens out of a dozen others, its a very good lens for product photography too, because it is so sharp.

    Heres a couple more shots with it,

    I think it’s one of Nikon’s sharpest. I have been tempted to get the earlier model that doesn’t have AF, they say it’s as good optically, I rarely use AF with mine, I have read where the non-AF one is nicer to manually focus. But this one is doing the job for me, and I already have more lenses than I use.

    Now you just have to decide, get it fixed or buy another one that already works. So parts must be still available for it I guess.
    Looking at your lens in the photo, it is in much better condition than mine on the outside. I dropped mine about 4 foot onto my concrete driveway, it took a bit more paint off and added some scratches, but it still works perfectly. I think it was dropped at least once before I got it too, going by the marks on it. They built them strong back then.

    Good stuff Larry, Ive been lusting after a Sigma 70 f2.8 macro, they have a good reputation and I think that focal length would suit what I do, just need to find one at the right price.

    I gave my 55 macro a workout this afternoon, I still have to go through the pics and sort out the good ones, but I did get one processed and posted in my 365 thread
