Problem with a new Nikon 50mm 1.8
May 8, 2010


A couple of days ago I went down to the store and got myself a new Nikon 50mm 1.8 lens for my D90.

I have a couple of problems with it -

1. Its quite difficult to get it on and off the camera. took me quite a few minutes to get it on at first because the resistance was so great I thought I was going to break it...

2. It doesn't autofocus right - when I autofocus on something the actual focal plane is about an inch closer then I had intended (Is this the term "Front focusing"?).

Before I go running back to the store to demand another lens - Could I be doing anything wrong here?
