Prime lens I bought a 60mm 2.8 prime lens for Nikon D200 and all I get is a "fEE" flashing message. I cannot take a picture with it. There are settings for auto " focus/manual" and "full/limit". Am I not doing something?? Robert

Re: prime lens

Make sure the aperture ring on the lens is set to the minimum aperture number, (usually a orange colored number), i.e. f22,f32

I am thinking of using Vivitar Series One 28-300mm f/4.0-6.3 Auto Focus for Nikon D2x...! Does this have aimage stabilisation motor in it?? Do u recommend this for the camera??

I don't think it has image stabilization. If you use a tripod, stabilization is not important. If not, you can increase your shutter speed to compensate. Vivitar makes fair quality lenses, but you have a Nikon. I presume that you bought your Nikon because you want top quality images. If it is a matter of money, I would wait until I could afford a Nikon lens. As an alternative, consider used Nikon lenses. I generally carry a 10-24 mm DX, 28-105mm and 70-300 mm and a 60mm macro when I travel and it works well.

I used my 80 - 200 f2.8D ED nikon lens on my D200 body, There is " fEE" blinking sign on it. But if i use my 18-70 lens there is no problem. What wrong with my lens ?

nothing is wrong with your lens. when you mount the 80-200 make sure the aperture ring is set on the highest f-stop (F22 or F32). there is a small lock that will lock the aperture ring in this position. if the camera thinks the ring is not in the "highest" "F" position you will get the error.

Nikon 18-200 mm vr lens not auto focusing on my nikon d200

lets start with the basics, try hard reseting it and try again, if that doesnt work then
try upgrading your firmware (if possible on your camera) and if that doesnt work then it may be the lens, but dont forget to spend a few hours trying to find a option for it in the meny

Nikon D200 refuses to auto focus with any lens it just doesn't do anything.

Does the camera body has a M/AFswitch? it would be located in front on the left side if that accidently gets changed to M your lens will not AF any more until you change it?? I know it sounds so simple but who knows!! Barry Brown

Nikon D200 with Sigma 18-200 DC AF D lens

Yes, please turn off the camera when changing lens, make sure on the lens is on its full aperture if you are doing auto. if doest not work to make is test turn the camera on the manual mode and the lens too.
If your lens is new there should not be any problem, if you bought the lens used make sure all the points are clear not rusted. some time when lens fall of it breaks its points inside.

Pictures are noisy

What ISO setting are you using?  If you go above 400 ISO with your D200 you'll likely need to do some noise reduction when you process.  Check to see if you accidentally activated AUTO-ISO.

Do you mean that you turned off auto focus on the shutter button? The manual will tell you where to find the appropriate custom setting. It's Menu > custom setting menu > a Autofocus > a6 AF activation.

Hope this helps.

The symptom you describe sounds like an incorrect white-balance setting when you take the images. Digital cameras are sensitive to the quality of lighting seen when your taking pictures. First thing to try is to manually select a white balance setting and try the photos again. Try google or your manual to find instructions on how to do that. The camera can auto-adjust to some lighting situations, but fails to properly compensate in other situations resulting in the muddy or yellowed images you have seen. There is a product called "expodisc" that corrects for this white balance problem as well. Look it up. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
