I just inherited a Nikon D200 with 35mmf2 lens and when I have it in P mode and switch the (switch knob with white dot)at the top of the lens from 22 to 2 (not sure what this is for either) it gives me an Err R25 on the display. Ive had this before in other incidences as well. Does anyone know what this is?

Re: Err, R25 on display
The D200 uses a different way of changing the aperture than on that old lens. Set the switch to 22 and lock it with the little lock just above it. It always has to set like this. Now the D200 will stop complaining.

Hi Norhid. There may be no problem at all. If your camera body is in shutter priority and your lense's aperture ring is turned to any setting besides its widest, the body and lense will not synch. See if you can find an orange aperture setting on your lense's ring, and a white dot on the lense alongside the aperture ring. Mount your 18-135 and line up the orange aperture number with the white dot and see if everything works. If that doesn't help, try switching the exposure modes you're shooting in. Hope this helps.
on page 101 (Troubleshooting) it mentions the Err message, and the shutter again to release it - According to the guide its a Refer Nikon Service Centre issue.
From how you describe it, it is consistent with there being a problem with lens compatibility. It would be worth checking compatibility (with the chart on pages 32 - 33) - Although if you inherited it "as a unit" I doubt thats the root cause..
Hello, The 50mm lens is fairly old and uses a different system to the later lenses. On the D90 and other later cameras you should rotate the ring to 22 and lock it there using the lock just above the aperture ring. To adjust the aperture you use the front dial by the on/of switch.
Try it out in A mode. Rotate the mode dial on the top left of the camera to A (Aperture Priority mode) then lightly press the shutter button to turn the meter on. Then rotate the front dial and you will see the aperture reading changing.
The older Nikons changed their apertures using the ring but the later Nikons use the camera controls.
The FEE message indicates that the lens is not set to smallest aperture (highest number). The camera body expects this so it will have full control of the aperture. It sounds like you may be accidentally bumping or turning the aperture ring on the lens while using it or changing lenses. There is a little slide lock to lock it at f/22 to prevent this. Turn the aperture ring to 22 and move the slider so the white dot is next to the orange mark on the lens barrel.
You need to "lock" the lens at the smallest aperature. With the lens removed from the camera, rotate the ring to the smallest aperture, which is the largest number (like 16 or 22). Next to that number you will see a small slide switch. Move that switch. It loocks that ring at that setting.
this same thing is happening to me on my D70s. i posted about it at photo.net and everyone is stumped. http://photo.net/nikon-camera-forum/00Q6eB i already returned the lens and got a new one... same problem. i don't know what's wrong. does anyone here have any insight?
Yes, please turn off the camera when changing lens, make sure on the lens is on its full aperture if you are doing auto. if doest not work to make is test turn the camera on the manual mode and the lens too. If your lens is new there should not be any problem, if you bought the lens used make sure all the points are clear not rusted. some time when lens fall of it breaks its points inside.
Today I was taking photos and the camera quit...the top display says err. The book says release shutter, but I push the shutter and it does nothing but make a little click and the err stays. I took the lens off, and the camera does look like the shutter is open or something.
1) turn the mode switch/knob on the left of the camera to M ( manual mode )
2) turn your lens to the highest f-stop ( 22 or 16 depending on your lens )
3) in front of shutter release button you have control for your aperture : turn until the desired aperture is displayed ( view finder or the LCD monitor on the top )
4) your shutter speed setting is controlled with your thumb with the control situated next to the strap lug on the right hand side of the camera.
5) press shutter release half way and look through viewfinder and see light meter reading and adjust either shutter speeds or the aperture as explained being guided by the l.meter.
