Question about Cameras
I got this lens and I am not able to get the autofocus working on Nikon D80. Also I can only use Manual more. Aperture or Shutter modes dont let me click. Any help is greatly appreciated.
If you mean the 85mm, it's not an autofocus lens. Nor does it have the electronics to communicate with the camera. You need to set the camera to manual exposure mode (turn the mode dial to M) and set the exposure manually. Set the shutter speed by turning the command dial on the back of the camera and the aperture by turning the aperture ring on the lens.
Again, this is a manual lens. No auto-anything. But it's a nice fast lens, with shallow depth of field when you want it.

When you get a flashing EE, it means there is an Eror somewhere. Most cameras have a botton you press to reset it. Usually it is the battery check button. Try that. Also try taking the lens off the camera, unlocking the aperture ring, remount the lens and then lock the aprture ring to the minimum F stop. I think this should solve the problem.

Hi, I had this problem and found that the level inside the camera for the exposure shutter was bent inwards. This was preventing the lens from adjusting the exposure and also from autofocusing. To fix I just bent it back outwards
