Just bought a used D40x that came with the standard kit lens. I wondering if I could get some help. The lens was obviously shaken up by the previous owner and a part has come loose inside the lens that seats on the back of the lens. It is two separate pieces, where one piece stays at the bottom and the other, I would assume, travels with the lens as it zooms in and out. I do not know what this piece is called, and I can not find where it is supposed to "live" within the lens. I can post images of the piece outside of the camera, if necessary. Any help would be greatly appreciated, due to the fact that sending the lens to a repair shop will cost more than buying a new one.
