Hi people. I need help here. I can't autofocus my Tokina 28-70 ATX-Pro lens on my Nikon D5000 even though I've switched it to AF mode. Is it just the lens or my cam?:sweat:

Nikon D5000 don't have an AF motor built into the body, hence need use AF-S lenses for autofocus.
Tokina 28-70 ATX-Pro lens don't have focusing motor in the lens, you can only do manual focusing with your D5k.
