Question about Nikon Normal AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D Autofocus Lens
HI, I own a Nikon D90 and have just purchased a Nikon 50mm 1.8 lens. This is my first lens i have used besides the ones that come with the kit. Ive noticed I get an error message and the camera wont work until I have rotated the dot to align on the 22. Is there anyway to make it work on the other numbers? If not what is the purpose of the ring turning the other numbers. I tried on all modes A,P S, M. Thanks heaps
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.
