Correct. The Lensbaby lacks the electronics to communicate with the camera. You have to switch the camera to manual mode and set the shutter speed yourself, without any help from the camera's light meter.

SOURCE: nikon coolpix l12 lens error

Dear All, Looking at other threads this seems a standard fault for many brands. I know the dreaded 'lens error' is a recognised Nikon fault.

I had the same problem with a Nikon Coolpix L1; lens would shuttle in and out rather woriedly and then get stage fright and freeze, hiding behind a lens error tag.

The solution came from a similar site to this and listed at least ten happy punters who tried it and found it worked, so, brace yerselfs....

Put a paperback book on decent sort of a table and slam the flat base of the camera down onto it as hard as you dare. If you slam and hold firm to the book it seems to give better shock without having to belt the poor thing to hell.

Worked first time for me. Not a cure, though. You'll have to repeat it every few months perhaps.

I suppose your camera may explode during the process; I decided mine was unusable as it was and so I'd nothing to lose.

If you break your wrist change to the other hand and don't slam so hard this time!!!

Before that I found some correlation between battery type, charge and lens function but the book bash was an instant cure.

Do let me know of any success

SOURCE: nikon s200 when camera turned on lens error

You may have a jammed lens assy. When the camera is turned on, camera go through a few stages of processing to be ready to take picutre and if the lens does not respond mechanically, it will give you a lens error. Lens jams due to sand or impact (even unnoticable light impact). If the lens is extended out you can somehow grab the lens barrel lightly with two fingers while turning the power on and nudge it side by side. If this did not help, take it to a reliable local technician for a diagnostic(should be free). Good luck. -james

SOURCE: nikon 18-200 mm vr lens not auto focusing on my nikon d200

lets start with the basics, try hard reseting it and try again, if that doesnt work then
try upgrading your firmware (if possible on your camera) and if that doesnt work then it may be the lens, but dont forget to spend a few hours trying to find a option for it in the meny

SOURCE: I have a Nikon D-40 I'm currently using a 55-200

You didn't specify which fisheye attachment you're using so I can't be too specific, but most such attachments are designed to work with wide-angle lenses. In the case of the Nikon D40 that would be a lens shorter then 30mm. All the attachment is going to do with the 55-200mm lens is make it into a shorter zoom.
Try using the attachment on a shorter lens, such as the 18-55mm. Of course, for best results use a true fisheye lens instead of putting an attachment in front of another lens.

SOURCE: I have a Nikon D-40 I'm currently using a 55-200

Fisheye is the extreme of a wide angle lens. I think you are not using a fish eye lens, but a fish eye adopter. That is a lens that will "shorten" the focal length of a lens most of the time with 30 % sometimes with 50% when you put it in front of your lens. So you could make a 24 mm lens look or act like a 12 mm.
On your tele lens this only will slightly shorten the 55 mm, but even 50 % of 55 is 27 mm and can't be seen as a fish eye.
I think when you put this on a short lens, the picture you get will be round, like you were using a real fish eye.

How to resolve nikon d5100 lens not attached error?


When you connect a lens from another firm, or an old one without a chip, The camera can't work in the automatic settings. So not one scene and also you can't use the A, S, P and Auto. Really only manual is possible. And you have to dial in everything. like shutter time and you have to set focus and Aperture on the lens.

Service fee for D5100 lens / sensor cleaning


You could ask a Nikon service centre closest to you.
You could try to clean it yourself. But only with the correct tools and enough knowledge about the camera. Cleaning kits for DSLRs can be bought in almost every camera shop. Perhaps you even can order a set with Nikon. Please if you do it yourself, inform yourself before you begin.

Operating nikkor 70-300mm f4.5-f5.6 with nikon d5100


No Nikon lens ever zooms automatically, so I assume you mean focus.
The D5100 lacks an autofocus motor, requiring the lens to have one. The older 70-300mm lenses lack this motor, expecting the camera body to have one.
The D5100 will only autofocus with lenses designated AF-S or AF-I. It will not autofocus with older AF-D and AF-G lenses.

Zoom on nikon d5100


In either mode, you're zooming by turning the zoom ring on the lens? In live view mode, if you zoom in by pressing the magnifying glass button, all you're doing is zooming the display, not the image itself.

Is adding grip for nikon d5100 solve the problem of auto focus with sigma 170-500 lens


No. This lens lacks an autofocus motor, relying on the camera to have one. The D5100 lacks an autofocus motor, relying on the lens to have one. Adding a battery grip does not change this situation.

The D5100 only autofocuses with lenses having an internal autofocus motor. Nikon designates such lenses AF-S, Sigma calls it HSM. Lenses without the motor will only autofocus with the larger and heavier Nikon cameras such as the D7000.

Can I use one nikon d5100 with one sakar mc zoom 80-200 No. 803489


If your lens has a Nikon mount then yes, you can use it on the D5100. You'll have to switch to the Manual exposure mode and you won't get any exposure help from the camera's light meter.

Can I use Quantaray AF 28-90mm f/3.5-5.6 in a NIKON D5100? Thanks.


Quantaray makes lenses with a variety of mounts for a variety of cameras. A lens with a Sony mount, for example, will not fit onto a Nikon camera. Assuming the lens has a Nikon mount, it will fit on the D5100. However, the D5100 requires the lens to have an autofocus motor. If the lens does not have such a motor then it will not autofocus. It will still work fine as a manual focus lens.

When I attach my Lensbaby, I get a message saying "No lens". I know I'm attaching it correctly.


The Lensbaby does not incorporate any electronic circuitry. Without any, the lens cannot communicate with the camera. That is what the F-- message indicates. Without the communications, the camera cannot meter the exposure since it doesn't know what aperture the lens is set to.

Your lens is on properly. You just can't meter through it. You can use a separate light meter, meter through a different lens, or simply shoot and adjust the exposure by looking at the result and the histogram.
