You need to turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest aperture (largest f/number) and lock it. You can control the aperture from the camera body, the same way as on lenses without an aperture ring.
Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest opening (largest f/number). If the ring has a lock, lock it in place. You can control the aperture from the camera, the same was as on a lens without an aperture ring.,
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.
On older cameras, don't lock the ring. You need to turn the aperture ring in order to control the aperture.
On newer cameras, turn the aperture ring to its smallest aperture (largest f/number) and lock it. You control the aperture from the camera, the same way as on a lens with no aperture ring. If your camera displays "FEE" on the LCD panel when you put on the lens without locking the ring, then you'll need to lock it.
If you're still not sure whether you need to lock it, please reply to this post giving the model(s) of the camera(s) you want to use with this lens.
If you need a manual, you can download one from the manufacturer's web site at http://www.nikonusa.com/pdf/manuals/lenses/AF/AF50mm.pdf
This problem is usually seen on Nikon models, but as your camera is basically a Nikon/Fuji hybrid it's not surprising that it's occurred on yours.
FEE usually means that you have not set the lens aperture ring to it's smallest (highest number) setting. Your camera needs this to happen in order for it to automatically control the lens aperture as it then allows the camera to utilise any aperture between the maximum and minimum settings.
If this doesn't fix your fault then try another Nikon AF lens; if the problem remains then you have a faulty camera body, usually a broken AI (auto indexing) post on the body which senses when the fitted lens has been set to minimum aperture.
If lens has aperture ring, set to min aperture before mounting (f22 etc) With heavier lenses it is not so easy to tell when lens clicks in all the way to mount, Lens wont autofocus if not clicked in to mount just so. Also both camera and lens should be set to AF.
