"D7000 auto focus clicking"

When pushing the shutter half way to engage auto focus there is a click. It also clicks when the button is released. This happens when using the view finder mode.

In the live mode there is no noise.

The lens is a Nikor 18-200mm

Is this normal?

Thanks

It sounds like what you are hearing is the VR engaging when you half-press the shutter button, and then disengaging after the shot. To test this, turn off the VR on your lens and see if you still hear the click.

Thanks Randy,

When I turn off the VR, there is no click.

Bob's original post said that it's an 18-200mm Nikkor lens.

I have a similar experience with the 55-300 NIKKOR. Mine only makes the noise (clunk) when the VR mechanism is returning to the static position. There is a visible image shift in the viewfinder when it occurs.

Just to re-emphasise - what has been described in this thread is normal behaviour for a lens with Vibration Reduction (VR).
