Question about Cameras

1 Answer

I attached a lens from an old 35 mm camera to my nikon d80. The lense is a nikon af nikkor 85 mm 1:1.8 D. It works fine on the 35 mm camera, but when putting it on my d80, it flashes the fEE error sign. I already tried locking the aperture ring.

Problems using Nikkor AF 35-70mm F3.3-4.5 with Nikon D80?


The sensor on the D80 is smaller than a piece of 35mm film. This means the camera will only use the center portion of the image cast by the lens. This reduces the angle of view, effectively increasing the focal length. The 35-70mm will give you an angle of view similar to a 52-105mm lens on a film camera. Likewise the 70-210mm lens will give you an angle of view similar to a 105-315mm lens.

Hey there! I'm so glad for sites like these! Well, the point is, I got a FEE error on my NIKON D80 after putting on an old NIKON 28-85mm AF macro lens. Actually on aperture F22 it's working...


Leave the aperture ring on the lens at f/22. You can control the aperture from the camera body, the same way as on a lens without an aperture ring, by turning the command dial.

Sometimes photos are overexposed using A or P mode on my Nikon D80 with 18-200 mm lens. I remove the lens, then re-attach it and all is fine. What is happening? Poor contacts?


Contacts should not have anything to do with the metering. That is done in the camera itself and not the lens. If a photo comes out overexposed, which is normal when using P or A mode, as metering isn't perfect, use the exposure compensation (+/- menu or button) to reduce the exposure as much as you feel is necessary. Exposure can be subjective so you should trust yourself more than the camera.

Nikon 17-35 lense overexposes past f5.6


Blades are dirty.

Test by setting up for 1" shoot and look into the lens.
If blades close late then they are in need of an PM.

I repairs & serivices cameras, flashes, lens and studio lighting.

Can i use a Quantray AF LD 70-300 mm lens with my nikon d80? Thanks.


That depends. If the Quantaray lens has a Nikon mount, then yes, no problem, it'll work on the D80. If it has a different mount, then it won't fit onto the D80.

Camera will not take picture with nikkor 105mm lens


Check if the lens is properly mounted. If still you get the error message, clean the electrical contacts between the lens and the camera using an eraser. Take care not to let any dust fall into the body. Attach the lens and try.
