    total beginner with nikon lens-need help pls

    hi, I just bought D200 and 18-200 lens, I am total beginner with digital slr, so I guess my questions will be naive, so, can somebody explain to me how my lens work, I have a problem with autofocus, my previous cameras were point&shoot, I was zooming, pressed button halfway and camera focused, I have 2 rings on my new lens: zoom and depth of field (or focus ring), in autofocus mode I zoom and try to press the button halfway but it doesn't focus, all I can do is after zooming I use focus ring and then press the button halfway and then I got the focused picture, maybe that's the way it supposed to be but it doesn't look like autofocus to me, thx for any help on this subject/raff
