#2. "RE: D5000 won't turn on with Sigma macro lens"
In response to In response to 1



Thanks for your response Brian.

Can you enlighten me on what "rechipping" means? Would this be done if there were a defect with the lens or for other purposes?

And yes, I am aware that auto focus will not work with this setup. For the intended purposes I pre-set the focus at a specific distance and quickly move in and out until things look sharp, then shoot. Currently doing it with a D80, but it would be easier to do it (point and shoot style) with a tilting screen moving the camera rather than my head.

Any info is appreciated.

Regards,

POC
