Hi Everyone,

This is probably going to sound like an extremely silly question and the answer is probably well known and obvious to most. However, since I am new to DSLR's ( having just bought a D5000) , I need some help with this.

Lets say my subject is at a distance from me . I have the 18-55/3.5-5.6 zoom (kit) lens attached. Focus is set to AF-A on the camera and the focus button on the lens is also set to A. The current focal length is 18 but I want to zoom in on the subject.

How can I get the camera to zoom in on the subject if that is what I wish for it to do without doing it manually? I can get the camera to auto focus the subject but it does not zoom in. It focuses at the distance that I am currently away from my subject. Basically to cut a long story short how do I get the lens to zoom in auto focus mode. Thanks.

Regards,
Troy
