Is the lens switched to manual as well as the mode dial. If the compatable lens is a minolta requiring an M42 adapter make sure that the protruding arm/rod is operating the shutter when depressed and that the adapter when fitted operates the lens when turned from auto to manual. Good luck.

How to get lumix g1k to work with an adapter and legacy lens. in viewfinder it states "make sure lens is attached correctly


On page 141 the manual says
[PLEASE CHECK THAT THE LENS IS ATTACHED CORRECTLY]
• Check that the lens is attached correctly and then turn the camera off and on. > If the message persists, contact the dealer or your nearest Service Center.



on page 14 the manual says :
This unit can use the dedicated lenses compatible with the Micro Four Thirds System lens mount specification (Micro Four Thirds mount) such as the lens included in DMC-G1K. Select a lens that matches the scene being recorded and your use of the pictures.
If you use a lens other than a dedicated interchangeable lens, auto focus cannot be activated and accurate metering is not possible. Also, some functions will not work.
You should put the camera in mode manual, to avoid the error you get.
to see what lens you can use see what the manual says:

Refer to catalogs/Web pages for most current information regarding compatible lenses. http://panasonic.co.jp/pavc/global/cs (This Site is English only.)

not a easy fix. when it is not connecting it defaults to the widest aperture so it is letting in as much light a possible. you could try speeding up your shutter speed and see if your start seeing a image

AV error whn pentax ist DL & Quantaray zoom lens attached


I've got the same problem. The problem is that the lense is loosely attached to the body. What you need to do is that when you see the Av flashing, press the lense of the camera to the body and twist the lense to the left a bit. This tightens the connection. You can then take the photo.

Lense will not work with SLR Nikon D90


This lens is too old for the D90, it has not got the electronics for metering and autofocus.
You can use it manually in M mode but you will have to set the aperture and shutter yourself.
The D90 manual has a section on compatible lenses, page 228 in my version.
This recommends CPU lenses for the D90, type G and D.
