Question about Canon 24-105mm f/4L IS USM EF Lens

1 Answer

I have a D5 with 24-105 L IS lens - Lens is locking when zoomed

I have a D5 with 24-105 L IS lens - the camera is 2yrs old and has worked fine till now. When zoomed +50mm it "sometimes" locks up and I get an ERR message - it exposes for maybe 1 sec or until I turn off the camera and turn it back on. Sometimes have to take the battery out & replace it. Contacts look OK.When lens is at 24mm it works with no problem. Another lens works fine.

Nikkor 18-55mm lens on Nikon d50 locks up in autofocus mode.


The "err" is generally when you have the aperture set to something other than "F22" with the aperture lock on. As far as the lens, you should take a pencil and use the eraser end on the electrical contacts both on the lens and camera and ensure that they are clean. Often times, cameras will respond, but not fully, if some of the contacts have build-up on them. If this still doesn't work, take the lens to a camera shop or ask a friend to borrow their nikon and try using the lens on a different camera to see if it is indeed the lens or the camera. Doing this will help you determine which needs to go to the repair shop.

Nikon 50mm 1.8 lens error message


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.

Nikon 18-55 zoom lens doesn't autofocus


You might like to check if the A/M slider switch on the lens by the Nikon label is set to A.
It sometimes gets moved accidently.
Set to M the lens will not autofocus.

FEE message in display when using 50mm lense


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.

For Nikon AF 24-50mm f/3.3-4.5D Zoom-Nikkor Lens I need instruction book. Specifically, there are dots side by side marking the apeture selected, left one yellow, right one green, what one is correct and...


The green mark is the index for the aperture setting at 24mm, the yellow mark is the index at 50mm. These really only matter if you are setting the exposure manually and using an external meter. The green mark is the primary mark -- as you turn the ring you will notice that it lines up with a number at every clickstop, while the yellow one is a bit off.

The pull down lever you ask about is the aperture lock. Autofocus film cameras and all digital cameras expect the lens to be set at smallest aperture (highest number). They will give an FEE error if it is not set correctly. When you turn the aperture ring to smallest aperture you will be able to slide the white dot into position next to the orange mark, and that will lock the aperture ring so that it is not accidentally tgurned while using or changing the lens.

Zoom ring on 18-55 mm lens is locked/stuck


Are you sure it's the zoom ring that's stuck, and not the focus ring? The focus ring doesn't move when the camera is in autofocus.
If it's indeed the zoom ring that's stuck, you can spend more money than the lens is worth in repairs, or buy a replacement (circa 35 dollars on ebay) for dreadfully cheap. Good luck.

You have a one year warranty with Canon, you should have all the information about shipping it to them in your original box.

Zoom lock slide switch


It will only lock the lens in the 50mm position (for storage and carrying) or past 100mm (to keep the elements from making contact when using a tc).
