Jim,

Thank you!!!!
After some gentle back and forth rocks and flips of the AF switch, it did indeed pop back up!

Learned something new.

I will still, I think, have a shop give it a good cleaning and tuneup. We go to the beach every year, and last year in particular featured a very windy day, so it is possible that some fine grit got in. Heading out in two months for a trip that will include great image possibilities, so the camera should be in top form. It does lead a rough life, travels with me quite a lot.


Thank you to all who replied, everyone had great suggestions which really helped understand the problem. Pepperberry farm, glad to hear the lens is one of your favorites!

The autofocus lens that does work is an HSM lens....that has its own motor, yes?

Adam: is this on the camera? How far out would it come? Right now if I have the right piece, it is not even flush with the end of the mount. Should it come out if the camera is turned on?

I have two other autofocus lenses...one works, one makes the same clicking sounds, although it used to work. (DA 10-17). I had just blamed that on lots of travel. I also have a fisheye that I rarely use autofocus on just because I never feel like it really hits it well, but it works smoothly.

Back of the camera display says AF when in autofocus...and yes it has the push/pull on the barrel.

Follow up, also the focus ring spins freely in autofocus. Is this normal?

I have a new to me Sigma 24mm 1:1.8 EX DG on a K-3. On autofocus it makes small clicking noises but otherwise doesn't focus. Manual focus works fine.


is there a good way to tell if the problem is the lens or the camera? The lens looks very nice, no obvious wear.

thanks
