Just a what's up...   if your lens doesn't support DMF focusing,  you can damage your lens by twisting hte focus ring while the lens is in AF mode.   Lenses like the DT line  (other than 18-135) do not have a clutch to protect the focusing motor.

If you have been twisting the lens to adjust focus after the camera Auto Focus's,  and have not switched the lens to MF mode,  you very easily could have damaged your lens.
