This is for a parts/repair Tokina 16-28mm lens, plus a Nikon 18-55mm VR lens and a Nikon SB-600 flash (not pictured), both also for parts/repair. Regarding the Tokina, I was hoping to turn this into something functional but work is going to get crazy and I'd rather just send it off to the next person. From the previous owner (Tokina lens). It dropped out of my backpack onto wood floor while attached to the camera - not a huge drop but enough that the weight of the camera broke some of the plastic close to the mount. There's a little plastic piece inside the housing close to the metal mount that broke, and a screw that holds the mount to the main body housing attached to that piece.
It seemed like it was only the one piece that was broken and probably repairable if you could find a replacement - without that broken piece, I was still able to line up the mount with the body, but needed the tape to hold it in place. All the glass seems just fine. The aperture and shutter worked.
The shots were soft and out of focus, the alignment of the back piece of glass in the mount with the rest is probably partly to blame. What I can tell you is that I have not removed the tape or interfered with it in any way since I received it. Other things I can say are. The lens will indeed mount just fine.
There is is no zoom, it is stuck (I can't see the numbers to give you the focal range it's at). Perhaps it is just the tape holding it, I do not know. When you press the shutter you can hear the sound of the motor turning on.It does not sound like it is struggling, but the lens will not even attempt to focus. When on manual focus, the ring is smooth and it will work up to a certain point, but infinity is blurry and funnily enough there is still a sound coming from the lens when you press on the shutter.
The aperture blades are good and I believe they open/close to where they should. However, when you go to open them manually via the rear switch, the switch has to be pushed about halfway before the blades start to move.
I also have to point out how sad it all is. Aside from the damaged area, it is a beautiful piece. The body is excellent and the glass is super clean.
Plus it has the original cap, which I'm pretty sure by itself is worth a few bucks. The 18-55mm VR was described as working prior to their arrival to me. I highly doubt it was. Very clean inside and out. However, I had it on a D7000 and nothing happened.
I put it on a D300s, and that camera was at least able to take a photo but again, no autofocus, no VR. I made sure both cameras were in AF mode, and cleaned the lens connector pins with an alcohol swab.See my other (working) Nikon ads.
