    m sorry I missed this last week. If the aperture ring won't move it
    means the grease has solidified, and needs to be cleaned out and
    replaced. If the ring moves freely but the iris does not change, that
    probably means the forked bracket is bent away from the pin - see
    attached pics.



    To remove the lens from the focusing mount, unscrew the collar that
    surrounds the rear lens element. The focusing mount then lifts off the
    lens - just lift it away keeping it square with the body of the lens.



    To clean out the old grease you need to remove the spring and the tiny
    ball bearing that form the detent, as well as the forked bracket. Be
    careful with that tiny ball bearing. Then the aperture ring can be
    lifted off. Clean and relube with a very small amount of light grease.
    Lubing mine made adjusting the aperture much easier.



    If the forked bracket is bent away from the pin, you should be able to just bend it back.



    If the iris won't move even after the aperture ring is removed, it needs specialist help.



    When reassembling, put a little dab of grease on the ball bearing to
    make it stay in place while you position the spring and tighten the two
    screws.



    When you put the focusing mount back on the lens, be aware there is a
    tab on the focusing mount that has to be lined up with a slot in the
    body of the lens.

    I just checked that information. It's for a Canon, not a Nikon...the search for the service manual was nil..so I don't really know what else to suggest, except local camera shop..

When i take shots with my nikon d1x it show black in the lcd screen.Any one that can answer


I don't have a manual of the D1 (they are still online for free with Nikon) so In a detail I could be wrong, But when setting up the delay time for monitor off, you can select monitor off. Check n the settings (C5 or so) if you selected a delay time, or accidentally choose for monitor off.

Sometimes pictures are dark even in auto mode, err message is always coming, dark image in the view finder.


Hi dear pmorala
1) check
the lens if to drive the diaphragm actuating lever that opens.
2) also check the aperture lever on the camera body may be broken or bent.
3) look at the Shutter release the mirror and shoot the camera in a low speed (M mode) note if this works correctly or some of the leaves that make up the curtain is loose or out of place.


Everything seems fine ... OK command dial to select the full aperture, shoots the camera at you and see the diaphragm (set M mode and speed sh bellow 1 / 8). Full closed? = Aperture Mechanism defective.

I got a Nikon D5000 and 18-55mm lens. When I take pictures using focal between 18-24 mm the deep of field is not sharp especially for landscape pictures. I made at list 200 pictures (the same image) test...


We need to understand Depth of Field first. Depth of field increase in two ways, one with the Aperture setting and one with the distance the lens is focused on. Example, at F22 focused at 10 feet the Depth of Field will be (assume for the example) from 7ft to 20 ft. You need to use the camera in aperture mode, set it to a "Slow" aperture, the larger the number the slower the aperture. Example F2.8 is "fast or Open, F22 is slow or "closed". The problem is not in your lens or camera. To get maximum Depth of fuield you need to shoot in Aperture Mode, set the f-stop to F11 or slower, F16, F22. The use manual focus to focus the lens. Using auto focus is "ok" for many scenes but to get MAX Depth of field you cannot let the camera select the object to focus on. Here is the BEST way to do it. Setup your camera in Aperture mode, set F-stops as suggested above. Focus on the subject that you want and shoot. Dont forget, the camera will be using slow shutter speeds like this so camera shake will create blurr that can be confused with out of focus. Shooting slow at F11 to F22 usually required a good tripod. Also, another thing to know, Field of focus is deeper "behind" the spot you are focusing on than in "Frint" of the point you are focused on. Good luck, Worm1855

I have a Nikon D60 and have just bought a 50mm AF 1.8 D lens but find I can only use the aperture setting at 22. Is that right ?? why can't I use the other aperture settings ??


The D60 camera sets and triggers the aperture that you have selected (or the camera has selected if in auto mode) and sets the aperture as you take the picture. Moving the aperture ring on the lens will not work, in fact once you move it from the f22 position the camera will stop or possible show and error. on my older Nikon AF lenses there is a small lock to lock the aperture ring in the lowest position when mounted on a digital camera, it is found near the f2.8 side of the aperture ring. when you want to set the apertures manually, you put the camera in aperture or manual mode and set the aperture you want by moving the the rotating wheel on the grip part of the camera. the aperture you select will show in the window, you do not have to move the ring on the lens,it must remain the f22(highest numerical) position.

Sounds like the coupling pin on the body is missing, Try a diff auto focus on the body, If it still does it then I believe that\'s the problem, On the body next to the lens mount, About 7 o clock there should be a lever that couples with the lens when is is at f22 or larger

I think I messed something up on my lens.


You are correct that the switch locks the aperture. In order for your camera to function correctly in the auto-focus mode you must lock the aperture to the smallest opening (largest number such as f22). The switch has two positions. The position where the switch is lined up with the orange line is the locked position. When the lens functions properly and on the camera, the lens aperture is forced wide open by a pin on the camera body pushing a lever on the lens that opens the aperture. As part of the sequence when you push the shutter button, the camera releases its pressure on the spring-loaded lever on the lens, allowing the aperture to close to the setting that the "computer" has determined as correct. You will find this lever on the outside of the black ring that surrounds the rear lens element. With the lens removed, find the lever and make sure that with the lens set to the f22, sliding the lever counter-clockwise against the slight spring tension, the aperture opens wide and returns to f22 when released. If this is not the case, the problem is in the lens. If this works, then the problem is either in your camera body or in the alignment between the body and lens. If this does not get you on the right track, let me know what you find and we will proceed from there.
