Hello. I love this website and forum, it's proving invaluable. We recently bought a second hand D5100 and we are very impressed. We now have a long Sigma lens and a fixed 35mm lens, both of which work very well and (with the aid of your site) we are becoming more and more familiar each day.
However, for some reason, getting the kit lens to autofocus is beyond us, despite being able to focus it manually and despite occasionally being able to take shots, albeit out of focus.
I get the feeling that it'll be a combination of settings, but I'm not familiar enough with modern cameras (the last time we worked with cameras was 35 years ago) to be able to work it out, so any help/guidance would be very much appreciated.
I have a feeling that your cheat sheets will be something we will purchase once we become a little more familiar with how to work the camera - they look great!
Thanks in advance.
