Question about Nikon Nikkor 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S for Digital SLR
I have the nikkor 28-135 lens and I think it is not connecting correctly to the body, as f-- is flashing on the display. I can take photos in manual mode but they come out black. Does anyone know what I can do to solve my problem?Cheers, Ben.
First you need to tell me where you got a nikkor 28-135 - I dont find any reference to that piece of glass on the nikon site - I believe you might have a sigma or some other brand glass but not NIKKOR... TO your problem - have you tried setting the f-stop to f22? Most lenses talk to the camera bodies via f22 - if not try opening the lens up to its widest setting - typically when you see an F flashing it is because the f stops have been moved off of the AUTOMATIC SETTING - have you tried using the camera in manual mode?

That's the Nikon error message for a lens with aperture ring set to something other than the minimum (i.e. highest number).
The camera insists on controlling the aperture ring, and to do so, the ring must be set to the minimum setting.
Unless it is a "G" lens, which has no aperture ring whatsoever.
The camera body sets the aperture of the lens wide open while auto-focusing, and displaying through the viewfinder. When it comes time to flip the mirror up and take a picture, the camera dials the aperture to the setting you (or the camera) have selected.
