So i got a new nikon d5000 for the holidays and i love it! I paired it with a Nikkor 18-105 VR ED and i get decent results. Only problem is that when i have it on AF, I have to press the "AE-L/AF-L" button almost every time to get it to re-focus (unless its within very close focal range of the last shot. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated since it's bugging the hell out of me. Thank you to everybody that helps out!
