broken Nikkor 85 f1.4?
8 months ago

I just sold a used Nikkor 85 f1.4 (my absolutely favorite lens of all times) to someone who reports this:

I did receive the lens today. Physically it is in good shape. Unfortunately the lens will not focus at all. I've tried both manual and AF and it seems the lens is stuck. In AF It makes little clicking sounds as it is attempting to move but cannot. When I switch it to M it moves about 1/8 of a turn and then clicks into place. Is there something I don't know about that I'm missing? Camera is picking it up fine, Apeture is working etc, appears to be in great shape, clean glass, etc. Just can't focus?

Does anyone have any thoughts about this? If not, I'll need to refund his price (which I'm glad to do - I just feel bad having sent him a lens that worked fine on my D800 but which isn't working for him).

Thanks!

Nikon D800
