    I had the same problem while mounted to my D700. The lens was defective. When I checked the inner ring of the lens one which makes the direct contact with the camera body, I discovered that it was slightly imperfect. It was not allowing three of the small metal "bead" contacts to make a proper connection to the camera. This resulted in the autofocus motor not working and all pictures were turning out black.

    Can you check to see if you have the same problem with your lens ? Sometimes it's hard to tell since the ring defect is very slight.

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.

I have a Nikon 105mm 1:2.8 serial #200964. I'm


Nikon makes or has made several different 105mm 1:2.8 lenses, including an AF-S model and an AF-D model, as well as older manual-focus varieties.
Somewhere on the lens it will say "Nikon" or "Nikkor" along with "105mm" and "1:2.8". There should be additional text along with that. Your best bet is to include all of that in your description of the lens.

Problems using Nikkor AF 35-70mm F3.3-4.5 with Nikon D80?


The sensor on the D80 is smaller than a piece of 35mm film. This means the camera will only use the center portion of the image cast by the lens. This reduces the angle of view, effectively increasing the focal length. The 35-70mm will give you an angle of view similar to a 52-105mm lens on a film camera. Likewise the 70-210mm lens will give you an angle of view similar to a 105-315mm lens.

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.
