"Did I ruin my lens?"

Ok so, I have been fooling around with my camera since it is new; eventhough I don't know much about it.

I have the D5000 with the DX VR 18-55. I had the the setting on A (automatic) -the I decided to turn the manual focus ring (I know stupit

I forced a little one way a little the other than back to where I think I started. It seems to be ok. Seems to still auto focus pretty quickly. Is there a way to test to see if I did any damage? Anything I should look for? Any suggestions would be apprecaited...

Oh yeah, I won't do it again... HA..

Hi Mike,

Since the AF is working, I am confident that your lens is ok.
Though I would not recommend overpowering the AF motor again.
To verify that the AF system is accurate, just check a few recent images.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty
