That is a mechanical problem due to the shock. The lens assembly must be taken apart and re-assembled.

Try first pushing gently the lens with your finger, or tapping the back of the camera while you start up the camera at the same time.

If you DIY there is quite a big chance to cause further damage.

How to set f stop on lens


That depends on the lens. Would you care to specify?
Many lenses have an aperture ring. Usually this is the ring closest to the mount. Turn the ring one way to open up the aperture, turn it the other way to close it down. The direction depends on the make of the lens.
Other lenses do not have aperture rings. With such lenses, you have to control the aperture from the camera body, usually by turning a dial.
Sorry about the vague answers. If you need more specific details, please reply to this post and give details as to the make and model of the lens and the camera.

When the camera is turned on and the 16-105 DT 3.5-5.6 zoom is attached there is a repeated clicking sound that continues until the camera is turned off. A sony camera salesman indicated it was the lens. ...


I had the same problem with my SAL-16105. It turned out that inside the lens the FOCUS DIFFERENTIAL RING (Artnr.: 321020202) was broken. The camera tries to move the focus from one end to the other when it is turned on (probably to check the functionality), but as the ring is broken, focus will never reach its end-point. Thus the camera continues to try to turn the mechanics futher until either the gear on the lens ring or one of the gears inside the lens will jump, making the clicking sounds. Another reason might be that one of the brushes ("focus brush") inside the lens that are used to signal the position of the focus to the camera electronics is damaged. (This might even lead to the mechanical destruction of the focus differential ring I think). I was able to repair my ring, but as I had to glue it, after a few months it failed again. I'm waiting for a replacement ring now.

Hi, When i turn on my camera attached with my 18-135mm lens, it says F-- . I've tried change with another lens, then it became normal and it seems like no problem at all. What is the problem actually...


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.

You may want to check what the aperture ring is set at on your 85mm. Nikon SLRs for most purposes, require that the f-stop on the lenses be set at the minimum aperture number, ie f-16,22,32. This is so the camera has the full range of the aperture to control it properly. Most if not all lenses for Nikon have a small button, usually marked with orange, to lock the aperture ring at that setting

Error message shows F -- with lens attached. Lens was cleaned with compressed air, now willnot work. Lens type Nikon 28-80 AF


Check to see that the lens aperture ring is set to the smallest (largest numerical) aperture setting (usually f22 or such). Nikon AF cameras have to have their lenses set at the smallest aperture for most of their program modes to work. Nikon AF lenses have a small slide or twist lock adjacent to the aperture ring to lock it in place at the smallest aperture. This may have been unlocked during the cleaning.
Another possibility is that the lens's electrical contacts were damaged during cleaning, so the body is not "seeing" the lens. Do you have another lens you could attach to the body to test this theory?

Answer to your question is, ‘Yes’ we can. Use Sigma FD lenses.

As we know Canon AV-1 has electronically controlled AE (Automatic Exposure) & has a Canon Breech-lock lens mount.

Original generation of FD lenses featured a silver locking ring at the base. Only that locking ring turns to lock the lens to the camera body; the lens body remains still.

In the newer lens system which was introduced with this camera, the user has to line up the red dot on the lens, with the red dot on the camera and simply turned the whole lens clockwise until it clicked into place.

Note: FD-mount cameras could use FL lenses in stop-down metering mode.

Thank you & have a nice day.

Warm regards,
William

You have a 55mm filter size on your camera, and the accessory lens requires a 62mm camera connection. I think you are looking through a 55mm tunnel into a 62mm lens (over-simplified I know). The black ring is the result, and I don't think you can fix that. Is the telephoto a Panasonic accessory, or a third party item. I think I already know the answer to that. I'd take it back and see what Panasonic recommends - you'd be happier. However, Panasonic has Leica glass (Leitz lenses) so it won't be cheap.

Flashing letters in lens


Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest aperture (largest f/number) and lock it there if it has a lock. You control the aperture through the command dial on the camera body, not the aperture ring on the lens.

Pentax K10D won't work with lens from Pentax K100 (film0


The lenses are probably manual focus lenses,  
  1. Make sure that the apature ring is set to 'A' or automatic, 
  2. if these are manual focus lenses then switch the focus switch on the left side of the camera body to MF 
  3. If this still doesn't work, or you are having trouble with the apature ring then press the menu button to go to the  menu then press the right arrow key untill you are in the  Custom Settings, scroll through the custom settings with the up and down arrow keys until about the 2nd from bottom there is an option called "using aperture ring" set this to 2 (Permitted) This will make the camera take a image when lens is on any f-stop manually. 
Try this and everything should work fine. If all this hasn't worked then try seting the mode dial on the camera to M manual mode. Cheers
