Question about Nikon AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 G Nikkor Lens
Ekkk Nikon D50
Thinking I would finally go from auto and learn manual I played with settings at Christmas and got the sucker all screwed up. Now I can't even get my zoom to work. Have i killed it? I hit the reset config many times. My 18-55 works but when I attach my 70-300 (many times now) it shows F-- flashing on auto and wont allow me to shoot a shot. When i put 70-300 on manual it will shoot on this mode but it shoots black (blank) shots. The F-- is showing still on this mode as well. Here's what the manual said http://www.nikonusa.com/pdf/manuals/dslr/D50_en.pdf
how can i figure out whats wrong? Is the len broke or is it still a setting I have screwed with.
Thanks for any assistance
You need to put the aperture ring - that's the thing that's closest to the camera on the lens - to the highest number possible. On the 70-300 Nikkor, That number is 32.
This will solve your problem! :)
