D90 won't autofocus at distance

\015 Hi. Current issue i have with my D90 (18-200 lense): since yesterday the camera cannot autofocus on objects at a distance further then 3 meters at 18mm, yet will get an autofocus and capture image if i zoom in slightly to mid-zoom range (in function of distance). Anyone have an idea about this? I changed lense to a 18-105 to test, same issue. yet with a 70-200 it'll autofocus and capture shot at any distance... Thank you for your help !\015

Mine seems fine. The only other thing I would think to check is the focus lock is off and the focus area setting.

I have a Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4.5 Macro lens working on a Nokon D40X and Nikon D300. For medium to long distances the autofocus does not seem to work with this lens. I think it used to but now I notice that from about 40 feet away the autofocus does not work. The same happens with both cameras. Other lenses work fine so I don't think it is the camera. Is there any history of problems or is it a feature of the lens? thanks, Richard Brand
