Does this only happen with this lens? If other lenses work OK, then the problem is in the lens. If it happens with all lenses then it is in the body.

Try cleaning the contacts on the back of the lens and in the body mirror box with a Q-tip lightly saturated with alcohol.

How old is your lens? It may have a conflict with the newer camera body. Did it work right before?

SOURCE: Fitting a Sigma Lenset to Nikon D40

You have to make sure you bought the sigma lens with a NIKON mount. Sigma makes a Sigma mount as well as a Canon mount, of course neither of those mounts will work with your camera. Also you must also make sure your lens is the Sigma 70-300 HSM (/Hyper Sonic Motor) or it will not AF on the D40. I just bought this lens from Abes of Maine and I love it on my D40.

The problem may be with the sigma's aperture ring. Try this:

- Turn camera off
- Turn the aperture ring clockwise and lock it
- Turn camera on

If this does not solve the problem, do it again but turn it counter-clockwise

Have you tried formating the memory card? R07 means it has 7 shots in internal memory. Since you have already pressed the reset through the small hole in the front, if formatting the card does not work, try downloading the latest firmware from Nikon and installing it.

SOURCE: Message: Lock lens aperture ring at

You must lock the aperture ring to f/22, so the camera can engage the aperture adjustment lever on the lens. Then, you can change the aperture with the command wheel.

When you change the aperture with the command wheel the aperture ring on the lens doesn't move when the camera actually adjusts the lens aperture.

Take the lens off and locate the aperture adjustment lever on the lens mount.

Unfortunately, this won't work with older AF lenses. So if you are using an older lens, the only thing you can do is change the camera setting to M (Manual) to adjust the aperture on the lens yourself.

How do I switch to an aperture higher than f/32 on my nikon d3000?


Yes. Just lock the lens aperture ring at its smallest setting (largest f/number). If you need to change the aperture, change it from the camera body by turning the command dial, the same way as with a lens without an aperture ring.

Nikon d7000 keeps flashing fEE


This is with the Sigma 24mm? If this is with the Nikon 24mm AF-D or another lens with an aperture ring then turn the aperture ring to its smallest setting (largest f/number) and control the aperture from the camera body the same way as with a lens without an aperture ring.

If it really is with the Sigma lens, try cleaning the contacts on the back of the lens and in the lens mount on the camera body.

I have a Sigma 70-300mm lense which, when I attach it to my D300 gives me an error message of FEE. I was assured when I bought the lense that it would work. Am I doing something wrong?


You didn't specify which Sigma 70-300mm lens (Sigma has at least five different versions, and I'm not referring to the lens mount), but from the error message I assume the lens has an aperture ring. Turn the aperture ring to its smallest setting (largest f/number) and lock it in place. Control the aperture from the camera, the same way as on a lens without an aperture ring.

If the lens doesn't have an aperture ring, please reply to this post specifying the exact model of the lens. That's all of the numbers and letters around the 70-300mm, like AF, DGO, f/4.5, etc.

According to the manual for my Sigma 105mm f2.8 EX DG Macro lens with my Nikon D90, when using P or Sutter priority auto mode the diaphragm control ring needs to be set to the smallest aperture(f32) and...


In all modes the aperture ring on the lens should be locked at the smallest aperture. In the M and A modes you control the aperture by turning the command dial on the front of the camera. In P and S modes you control the aperture indirectly by turning the command dial on the back of the camera.

How do you make af work on nikon 3000, using a sigma 70-300 f4-5.6 dg macro lens?


Unfortunately, you don't. The D3000 does not have an autofocus motor; it relies on the the lens having one. This particular Sigma lens, unlike its Nikon equivalent, does not have a motor.

Nikon calls their lenses with an autofocus motor AF-S. Sigma calls theirs HSM.

To NOT get that error you need to use in AV mode. It's the only way that old Sigmas work with the new Canons. It's an aperture bug that old Sigma lens have and some the only way to fix it is to rechip it. The problem is that Sigma no longer rechips the lens.
