Turn the aperture ring to the smallest aperture (largest f/number) and lock it there. Set the aperture and shutter speed on the camera body. You didn't specify which camera you're using, so I'm afraid I can't give you details there.

You will find all the information in the camera manual, not the lens manual.

I have just purchased a Tamron 35-70 3.5 CF MACRO BBar MC Nikon fit lens. Are there any special settings/requirements when using the lens for macro photography. Thanks.


This is a macro lens, and I can't find it has an auto focus nor can I find if it has a chip, or even any electrical connection. The sharpness though should be good.
When you are using a non chip lens on a Nikon, you only can use it in manual. So you have to put the main dial to M. Then you have to focus manual and just take a shot. the result will be to dark or to light, unless you already knew hoe much light you have and dialled the aperture and shutter time in correct.
For macro you want a large aperture number, to have as much sharpness (large depth of field) so the best thing is to choose f 8 or 11 and turn down the speed till you have a good light picture.
I found a forum about this lens, but they did not say a thing about the specs.

Is there an adapter for Tokina Rmc 1 3.5-4.5 35-135mm Zoom Lens to fit to panasonic gh2 m4/3?


Perhaps. Tokina makes lenses with a variety of mounts. If the lens already has an m4/3 mount then you won't need an adapter at all. Some Tokina lenses take the "universal" T-mount. In this case remove the current mount and put on an m4/3 mount. If it has some other fixed mount, m4/3 adapters are available for some of them. It all goes back to the mount already on the lens.

Can I use TOKINA lens 28mm-210 lens with this Nikon body or can I use with other NIKON body D 700?


Tokina makes their lenses with a variety of mounts. A lens with Canon mount, for example, won't fit onto a Nikon. Assuming you get the lens with a Nikon mount, then yes, you can use it with a D70 and with a D700.

The !AE error messsage and a yellow !camera image appears on the camera screen and pictures are horribly blurry. How can this be fixed?


if this is a slr camera ensure the lens is fitted correctly or that the connectors on the lens and body of camera are clean.

also try changing setting out of AE "apature priority" to another setting such as auto, the indication could mean that the place where the photo is being taken is too dark and that the apature setting for the speed set is too small for a decent image. and the apatures needs to be open further or the shutter speed needs to be slower or the IOS/ASA needs to be raised. to stop bluring at slower shutter speeds or in dark areas it is advised to use a tripod or other sability device.

I hope this was useful.

Instruction manual for settings on a Nikon F2?


Set the film speed with the dial on top of the Photomic unit. Lift the chrome ring and turn so that the film speed is next to the little red arrow.
Yes, the aperture is set by the lens ring. And if you have one of the older finders which uses the prong meter connection, whenever you mount a lens you must turn the aperture ring all the way to the highest number, then back to the lowest number. For old-timers, this is known as the "Nikon twist". It tells the meter system what the widest aperture of the lens is so that it can measure light properly at full aperture.
Yes, the shutter speed is set by the dial on top. The Photomic meter sits on top of it, so you read the shutter speed from the scale on the side of the Photomic dial by the mark on the back.
The other buttons on the front are the lens release button (left side as you hold the camera), DOF preview (button just under shutter release), mirror lock-up (lever ring around DOF button) and self-timer (long lever at bottom).
The T-L ring serves to protect the shutter release from accidental push. If you lift the ring and turn the mark to L, the shutter release is Locked. If you lift and turn to T, it prepares the shutter for Time operation, where the shutter remains open when released without holding the button down as you do at the B speed setting.

Finally, the most help: you can download the manual for free (donation requested, and worth it) at http://www.butkus.org/chinon/nikon/nikon_f2_photomic/nikon_f2_photomic.htm

Nikon D40 I bought a set of macro lenses that said they were compatible for the d40 but i cannot figure out how to fit them. They are 52mm lenses - should i have bought an adaptor or something? where...


Macro lenses are mounted to your camera body in place of the lens you currently have mounted on the camera. If you bought the camera with the lens already mounted you may not have realized that the camera and lens are 2 separate objects. To remove your lens see page 8 in your user manual for instructions and an illustration. If you don't have your user manual handy, you can download a PDF file from NikonUSA Here.

If what you bought are macro rings, they go on the camera, then your regular lens mounts onto the ring. You can use one or more of the rings between the lens and camera to produce different macro settings.

If what you bought are macro filters, they screw on to the front of your lens. If you have a UV filter on your lens you need to remove that before you attach another filter.

Changing lens


Your Nikon is a SLR which stands for single lens reflex. The reflex part is the way the mirror that lets you look through the lens to frame the picture flips up to let the light go straight to the film. You can change the lens half way through the film roll because the mirror is down while you change the film and blocks light from getting to the film, just as it blocks the light until you push the shutter button. Have fun with your 'new' camera! I use an even older style Nikon FE2. I like my Nikon 55mm macro lens but your newer camera takes autofocus lenses so you'll need advice from someone else for that.

My Tokina AF Lens NEEDS HANDS-ON REPAIR (macro)


A: Your local (specialist) camera shop should be able to look at that for you. But it could be that nothing is wrong and you would be wasting your time because:

B: Searching through other forums, it seems that Tokina's official stance is that it is not designed for digital cameras. eg www.dyxum.com/reviews/lenses/reviews.asp?IDLens=182
