Problem with 18-135 kit lens

Some of you may have seen my Nikon Kit lens after it had been sat on. Well it has been repaired. All well and good - BUT now at 135 mm the camera (D80) will not lock on auofocus. It just searches without finding! Is this likely to be the lens? I assume so - since the body seems OK with the 70-300 zoom. Any ideas? (already had the idea to dump it for the 18-200 zoom). Need to believe that the camera body is OK.

Re: Problem with 18-135 kit lens

Your profile does not say where you are but do you have a local camera shop that may have one of these kit lenses in stock and will let you try it on your body. That should give you the answer you need. I have usually found Jessops very helpful.

Yep - as soon as I saw your post I though the same - try the lens on another body and try another lens on your body.
