Yes, that's normal. At 50mm the widest available aperture is f/4.5, and that works at the small end to make f/32 possible.

Nikon N65 with Nikkor 35~80mm AF lens will not focus or shoot


N65s were notorious for bad shutter release buttons. The metal is thinner than a strand of hair and they break. Search Ebay and see if the part is available to replace (note: Nikon stopped selling parts last year).

Error: FEE on Nikon AF N6006 film camera with Nikon lenses.


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

Hi, I have an old Nikon F90X with Nikon AF NIKKOR 28-200 mm lens. Can I use this len in othernew Nikon digital camera? Thanks, Tz


Yes. But unless you're using one the the expensive full-frame models the lens will produce images that are magnified by a factor of 1.5. So your 28-200mm lens will behave like a 42-300. Aperture values are unaffected though. On the plus side, the fact that DX sensors only use the middle of the lens image means that the pronounced image pin-cushioning is greatly reduced, and the vignetting (darkened corners) is also reduced.

Both versions of the 28-200 (AF-D and AF-G, click for details courtesy of Ken Rockwell) lack an in-built focus motor, so autofocus only works with Nikon bodies which have an AF motor built in. Not all the digital models have them, but if that's the case with yours then you can still focus manually.

Please take a moment to rate my answer.

What type of lens works with this Nikon N8008s AF 35mm SLR? Thank you, Larry


Any of the Nikon Auto Focus(AF) lenses should work fine with it. There are also a number of fine aftermarket lenses made for your 8008, by Sigma, Tamron, Tokina, Quantaray and others. Be sure you get the Nikon AF lenses, as they make the same lenses for Sony and Canon. You cannot use the Lenses made for another brand, as they will not fit, work right, and can damage your Nikon.

My Nikon N55 will not auto focus.


Depending on the type of interchangeable lens you have mounted on the camera, there may be a switch on the lens barrel for choosing between auto-focus or manual focus. The N55 also will not auto-focus with the newer Nikon AFS lenses such as those used with the Nikon D40 digital slr. Finally, there was a service bulletin on the N55 back in 2005. Nikon discovered a problem with the auto-focus and fixed it for free, but there may have been a time limit. Here is a link to more info about that:

Hope this helps : -)

I can't see through the eyepiece of my new Nikon N65 too well


The lens needs to be an AF model. If pre AF or New digital AF-S then that is the problem.

Error message shows F -- with lens attached. Lens was cleaned with compressed air, now willnot work. Lens type Nikon 28-80 AF


Check to see that the lens aperture ring is set to the smallest (largest numerical) aperture setting (usually f22 or such). Nikon AF cameras have to have their lenses set at the smallest aperture for most of their program modes to work. Nikon AF lenses have a small slide or twist lock adjacent to the aperture ring to lock it in place at the smallest aperture. This may have been unlocked during the cleaning.
Another possibility is that the lens's electrical contacts were damaged during cleaning, so the body is not "seeing" the lens. Do you have another lens you could attach to the body to test this theory?

Aperture priority not working...HELP!!


Hey Mike, This is an easy one. With the battery grip attached, you can only have either Shutter Priority or Aperture Priority work properly. You can change it with the custom function settings of the camera. So you can change it to work with Aperture Priority if you use that more so then shutter priority won't work. Brandon
