Need HELP from some lens Pros here...

I could probably handle a D810/D850 with my eyes closed..Ok, mostly But I do know it well. So not making a "newb" error here.

After a foray with Sony, I wanted to buy a D850; I just prefer the Nikon. I purchased it from a guy on a forum with a 24-70G lens. It won't focus. I've never had a lens not focus for Nikon and I've had their bodies/lenses for years.

The lens is on M/A mode and camera is set to AF. The camera focuses perfectly with my ART 35 lens I have so it's not the camera. LiveView it doesn't focus. He said the lens worked fine last time he checked. Interestingly, when I first mounted the lens it did acquire focus a few times. But then quit. I thought maybe it was at a particular mode or focal length, but it just altogether stopped working. It does show the Fstop and changes without issue. Any ideas? This totally sucks! Thanks 🙏

Nikon D850
