My older 300mm f4 lens is built like a tank and is way more hand-holdable than my 500mm or my 300mm f2.8 VRII, so I'd like to keep it. This older lens has a ring with a knurled knob near the front of the lens to allow autofocus limiting, something that has been replaced on newer Nikon tele lenses with a switch on the side of the lens. That focus limiting feature broke, so I could not focus near or at infinity. Nikon repaired the lens, took about 6 weeks. The first time I used it, same problem. Obviously, I'll send it back to Nikon, but I wonder if anyone else has had the same problem. Am I doing something wrong? I've used the lens on my D7000, D700 and D800. I hope some of you old hands out there have used or can remember this lens and can advise me.
