Unlikely - these are high-precision parts - even disassembled and repaired by Nikon, the lens is never the same. The 18-55mm lens that came with the outfit goes for under $200. Depending what other glass you own, - and if you can afford it - go for the 18-200 VR and consider it a blessing in disguise. This lens is amazing in quality and universal usability.

Nikon d50 fee error


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

You're apparently using a lens with an aperture ring. Turn the ring to its smallest aperture (largest f/number). If the ring has a lock, lock it in place. You can control the aperture from the camera body, the same was as with a lens without an aperture ring.

If this is not the case, please specify the lens you have mounted on your camera.

I just got a new fisheye lens for my nikon D50, and I put it on and its saying fEE? What does that mean?


You need to 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 you've always done with lenses without an aperture ring.

When i attatch my 70-300 lens i get a flashing FEE in the box,the book says to set the minimum aperture how do i do this please.


Thanks for the additional info.

First, an apology: I misread the lens description, sorry. If you have the "AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 ED Nikkor" then the lens DOES have an aperture ring at the rear of the lens. If this is the case, then your D50 is compatible and all you need to do is turn the aperture ring on the lens until it's at the minimum f32 setting. The "FEE" message on your D50 should then vanish. When set this way, you control the aperture setting on the lens via the camera body controls. The command wheel alone adjusts the aperture when in Aperture Priority mode, and in Manual or Shutter Priority modes you need to first press the " /-" button behind and to the right of the shutter release before using the command wheel. There's even a handy little printed icon of a lens diaphragm to remind you of the secondary function of this button.

If your lens model is the "Nikon 70-300mm f/4-5.6G" then like a G lenses it lacks an aperture ring and so can only be controlled by Nikon bodies which operate the aperture from the body alone, like yours. So if you're getting the FEE error with a G lens then there's most likely a common fault which occurs with Nikon bodies with a small switch beside the lens mount. In the picture (courtesy and copyright of Digital Photography Review), the switch is at the 8 o'clock position.

This switch is activated either when a non-G lens aperture ring is turned to the smallest setting or when a G lens is correctly mounted. It is possible for the G lens to be damaged in such a way that the switch doesn't get activated but it's rare. If the switch is broken the camera body will need a repair.

Hope this answers your question, but if not add further comments. If it has answered your problem then please let me know by rating my reply.

Aperture


You need to set the aperture ring on the lens to the minimum f-stop number, i.e. f22,f32. The camera controls the aperture rather than a mechanical setting on the lens

FE E (flashing) r12 Error


Hey redfoxbrenda,
The error message you are getting means the aperture ring is not locked to the smallest aperture setting, and by this I don't mean set to the smallest aperture the lens must have the ability to be locked to the smallest aperture. It is unlikely that the problem is in the camera body. Some older lenses are just not fully compatible with the newer camera bodies, but if this is the case you should still be able to use the lens in manual and aperture priority mode but with limited capabilities. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
