So I dropped my wife's camera bag with her camera inside... its a Nikon D80 with an AFS Nikkor 18-135mm lens attached... she tried to use it and the autofocus motor makes a funny noise like its struggling to work andhad a hard time focusing (if it does at all).... I switched it to manual focus, which did work fine and took photos.

I want to get it repaired for her and wanted to ask you guys if it is the lens or the camera body? and if anyone could give me a clue on what the issue/repair is so I can get an idea when I talk/send it iin for repair...

THanks,

Jerold

It can be both.

Try the lens on another camerra (in the store you go to for the repair) and another lens on your (wifes) camera - then you will know.
