SOURCE: aperture priority malfunction

davidsucklin,
You can use the film lens with the D80, but it it not react to the same settings as it did with the film body, the multiplier factor for the focal length is going to be different and it may be stopped down a bit. When you are shooting in aperture mode are you adjusting your shutter and ISO? The camera and the lens have to be communicating the same info to one another inorder for it to work. First set the camera back to auto mode the check the shot to see the settings (f-stop, shutter speed) test them with different ISO's to see what the camera thinks the settings should be, then go back to manual on the camera and lens and try the shutter priority mode with the aperture ring set at the 2.8 to see if it works then change to Aperture mode with the same settings that can take the picture. If it doesn't work keep in mind som of the older D lenses will drop some functionality (like aperture) in certain configurations. You can verfify compatibilty of your specific lens on Nikon's support site.

SOURCE: I'm using a Nikon D3100

You can't set the aperture any lower than the maximum aperture of the lens. This is engraved on the lens. It may say something like f4-6.3 or something similar meaning that f4 is the largest opening of that particular lens. If you find a 55-200mm lens capable of an opening of f1.8, it will cost more than your first car.

SOURCE: Message: Lock lens aperture ring at

You must lock the aperture ring to f/22, so the camera can engage the aperture adjustment lever on the lens. Then, you can change the aperture with the command wheel.

When you change the aperture with the command wheel the aperture ring on the lens doesn't move when the camera actually adjusts the lens aperture.

Take the lens off and locate the aperture adjustment lever on the lens mount.

Unfortunately, this won't work with older AF lenses. So if you are using an older lens, the only thing you can do is change the camera setting to M (Manual) to adjust the aperture on the lens yourself.

How do I switch to an aperture higher than f/32 on my nikon d3000?


Yes. Just lock the lens aperture ring at its smallest setting (largest f/number). If you need to change the aperture, change it from the camera body by turning the command dial, the same way as with a lens without an aperture ring.

Lock lens aperture ring at minimum aperture


Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its minimum setting (largest f/number). If there is an orange slide on or near the ring, slide it so that the aperture ring doesn't turn.

What does fee mean on a 35mm camera


If it's on an SLR then it means the lens is not set to its minimum aperture. Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest opening (largest f/number) and lock it if it has a lock. You control the lens aperture from the body, exactly the same way as on a lens without an aperture ring.

You're apparently using a lens with an aperture ring. Turn it to its smallest aperture (largest f/number). You control the aperture from the camera body, the same way as on a lens without an aperture ring.

If the lens doesn't have an aperture ring, clean the electrical contacts on the back of the lens and in the lens mount.

My 17-35 nikon lens will only operate at 22 aperture on my D-70 camera.


Since the 17-35mm AF-D lens has an aperture ring, it must be locked at its minimum aperture. You control the aperture from the camera, the same way you do so on a lens without an aperture ring.

I have just bought a 60mm micro lens. when i put the lens on my Nikon D50 the message FE3 appears on the screen. i have tried taking of the lense and putting it back on but the message still appears.


I hope you mean FEE.

Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number). If the ring has a lock, lock it in place. You control the aperture from the camera body, just as you would on a lens with no aperture ring.

Nikon N80 error message appears when I turn on camera. Message is f EE in top right corner. New batteries installed did not fix problem


Your camera is telling you that the lens has not been set to it's minimum aperture.

As the camera body controls the aperture, the lens must be set to the minimum (highest number) aperture in order for the camera to be able to select any aperture between maximum and minimum.

If the lens is already set to minimum aperture then please report back for further options, but if my reply has solved your problem then please rate my answer.
