nikkor 50mm f1.4G
Mar 16, 2013

Hi guys,

I just bought a used nikkor 50mm f1.4G, and I tested it at the store, but when i got home and did some more tests, I found out that It has a problem, or at least I think it has:

The focus ring sometimes gets stuck, and I hear a clack noise and than it gets loose again, it focuses fine bout if I am focused to infinity, I have to click 7 or 8 times for it to focus on a near object (and I hear 7 or 8 claks).

Also if I set it to manual if I rotate the focus the outside ring moves just fine, but the numbers inside get stuck, than I hear the clack and it continues to rotate until it stops. I can't go past the 0.6 marker (to the 0.4) without doing like 10 full turns.

I have a nikon d7000 that I bought in January and it works fine withe several other lenses, so it's a lense problem. Can anybody tell me what could it be and if it's expensive/hard to fix? I don't know if I can return the lense but I like it and would like to keep it.
