Manual lense not working on f5 as aperture ring is sticking

Manual (AIS) lenses not working on f5 as aperture ring is sticking. In aperture and manual modes changing the aperture does not affect the camera's meter. The black ring behind the bayonet which should be picked up by the lense is not moving back into place. AF

My Nikon D5000 isn't recognizing my Sigma 35-105 lens. Why?


Is this an older manual focus lens? If so, it lacks the electronics to communicate with the camera. You have to set the camera to Manual exposure mode (turn the mode dial to "M"). Set the shutter speed on the camera body as usual and set the aperture by turning the aperture ring on the lens. You'll have to set the exposure without any help from the camera's light meter.

Fee error on d300 with Sigma lens with aperture ring


Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number) and then forget it's there. You can control the aperture from the camera body, the same way as on lenses without an aperture ring.

The lens only meters at F22 at other aperture setting it displays


That's the way it's supposed to be with all modern Nikon bodies. Keep the aperture ring at f/22. Adjust the aperture by turning one of the command dials on the body.

If that doesn't work it, please append a comment to this post specifying the body or bodies you're using with this lens.

Aperture lock tab annot be unlocked


Sounds like you have an early model Nikkor, There should be little round button that you have to push in to get it to unlock, And on some of them they would break off, look for hole on the aperture ring and take a pin and put in the hole and push in and the ring should move

Turning aperature ring will not change the f stop. The lens has not been handled improperly & looks mint.


If the aperture is stuck wide open then it's usually caused by oil contamination to the aperture leaves; this is a very common problem on older lenses. If it's stuck at a small aperture then the cause will be a broken or dislodged internal linkage.

Either way, it's not a DIY fix and the lens needs to be professionally serviced.

Hope this has helped you and that you're able to rate my answer.

Sticking aperture


Yes. A good camera technician can partially disassemble the lens and then thoroughly clean the blades and the rest of the aperture diaphragm mechanism. This is commonly referred to as an internal CLA (cleaning, lubrication, and adjustment). This is a very nice macro lens and it is worth repairing if it otherwise is in exceptionally nice condition.

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.

I BOUGHT A PENTAX K10D THAT CAME WITH A VERY NICE AUTO ZOOM LENS. I OWN SEVERAL OLDER PENTAX LENSES THAT I USED ON MY K1000 CAMERA AND I WANT TO USE THEM ON THE K10D. I CANNOT FIGURE OUT THE SETTINGS THAT...


Hello,

I don't own a K10D, but I do own a K100D which I have successfully used both manual focus & auto-focus lenses from my old Pentax stash!

1) If it is a manual focus lens, you need to turn off Autofocus on the body of your K10D. On my K100D, there is a switch on the side of the lens mount that says [-MF or -AF]. "-MF" is manual focus mode & "-AF" is autofocus mode. Since your lens doesn't have autofocus capability, turn it to the "-MF" mode.

Also . . . When I press "Menu" and go to "Custom Setting", I change two settings . . .

1) I change "Using aperture ring" to "Permitted". This allows you to use manual lenses (M lenses) that do not have an auto(exposure) setting, and also lets you use Auto lenses (A, KA, KA2, FA, etc.) in either the Auto or manual aperture setting modes.

2) I change "Fl with S lens used" so that even with a manual focus lens, although I don't have autofocus capability, my K100D beeps and shows a little red square in the viewfinder when I have successfully focused manually!

The K10D should have the same options.

This should get you up and running!

I have had a load of fun with my old lens on my new digital Pentax!

Take care & Happy Imaging!

If this is a manual focus lens, you will need to do two things (and an optional third thing.)

1) On the side of the camera, you have to switch the focus mode switch from "AF" (Autofocus) to "MF" (Manual focus) . . . Yeah. I know, you probably already did that. <grin>

2) When you press Menu, go to the Custom Setting and change the Allow aperture setting to on, so that the Pentax K100D will then work with manual control of the aperture ring. You need to do this or the K100D will not work with manual exposure lenses (M lenses) or even autoexposure lenses (KA, KA2, FA, etc.) when you move the aperture ring from the "A" position to one of the manual aperture settings!

3) This is optional, but in the Custom Setting you can also turn on the Fl in manual focus mode, so that even though you don't have autofocus capability, you will get a beep indicator when you have successfully managed to manually focus your lens.

I have a few nice manual focus lenses that I have a lot of fun playing with on my K100D.

Take care & Happing Imaging!
