Question about Nikon Normal AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D Autofocus Lens

1 Answer

Flashing " F EE" in the control panel

My nikon 50mm 1.8D lens is attached and when I turn he camera on, it flashes the above indication. I read in the manual that the camera will not take photos unless my lens is locked at the maximum apeture of 1.8. It seems I have done this yet it still flashes at me? Any clues how to lock this lens correctly? The only reason i can think it is doing this is that I bumped the camera and it became 'unlocked'?
Thanks.

The setting should be the the other end of the scale, I.E. f16,f22. The lens needs to be at the smallest aperture opening size, not the wide open setting. The lens does have a small tab that will lock the ring in that position.

My nikon 6006 n is flashing f EE


Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number). You control the aperture from the camera body, the same way as on a lens without an aperture ring.

I am trying to mount the AF f/1.8D 50mm lense on my Nikon D90- I do not here the click sound - when I turn on the camera, in the view finder I see F-- flashing all the time in any mode. Can you help me...


This particular lens is known to be a tight fit, especially when new. Most likely you just need to turn the lens a hair more and a little bit harder than you normally would in order to have it "click" home.

Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest aperture (largest f/number) and lock it. Control the aperture from the camera, just as with other lenses.

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.

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.

F=EE Message


Take the lens off and put it back on the camera again. Make sure you turn the camera off prior to doing this. Make sure your lens is at it's smallest aperture setting.
