Question about Nikon 105mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor Lens
I purchased a nikkor 105mm 1:2.5 lens for my Nikon D80. The camera will not take a picture with this lens. The f keeps flashing in the view finder. Can you tell me what is wrong.
Check if the lens is properly mounted. If still you get the error message, clean the electrical contacts between the lens and the camera using an eraser. Take care not to let any dust fall into the body. Attach the lens and try.

That's the Nikon error message for a lens with aperture ring set to something other than the minimum (i.e. highest number).
The camera insists on controlling the aperture ring, and to do so, the ring must be set to the minimum setting.
Unless it is a "G" lens, which has no aperture ring whatsoever.
The camera body sets the aperture of the lens wide open while auto-focusing, and displaying through the viewfinder. When it comes time to flip the mirror up and take a picture, the camera dials the aperture to the setting you (or the camera) have selected.
