Question about Nikon Normal AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D Autofocus Lens
Hi - i have a new Nikon 50mm 1.8 lens for my nikon D70. sometimes when i use this lense it freezes the camera and a message reads in the top right hand corner of my display "FEE". do you know what this means? also, any other of my lenses work normally!
The FEE message indicates that the lens is not set to smallest aperture (highest number). The camera body expects this so it will have full control of the aperture. It sounds like you may be accidentally bumping or turning the aperture ring on the lens while using it or changing lenses. There is a little slide lock to lock it at f/22 to prevent this. Turn the aperture ring to 22 and move the slider so the white dot is next to the orange mark on the lens barrel.

Tips for a great answer:
The FEE error message
Set to F22, or the highest aperture number - normally marked in orange. Note the locking switch.
If the above did not resolve the problem and you still experence the the error display FEE, please contact your local Nikon office. Before doing so please also check the following.
That the EE servo coupling highlighted above on the lenses has not been broken. That the F-min switch highlighted above on the camera body has not been broken. If either of the two items above are broken please contact your local Nikon service center.
