I have a Nikon D3100 and want to buy a zoom lens 70-300.Please help I am confused is a Nikon AF Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4-5.6G compatible? And is it automatic focus?


That lens will work with the D3100, except for the autofocusing. In order to autofocus with the D3100, you need AF-S lenses, such as the AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED or the
AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR.

My camera won't take pictures and whenever i attempt to it says FEE and doesn't take it. i don't know why?


In order to use a lens with an aperture ring on a Nikon DSLR, you must set the aperture to its smallest opening (largest f/number). Lock it in place if it has an aperture ring lock.

You control the aperture the same way you would on a lens without an aperture ring, from the camera body.

I have a D90 Nikon, I mounted my Nikkor 50mm 1.8d


Make sure you set the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number) and lock it. Without doing so, the lens will not communicate properly with the camera and thus you will not get the autofocusing.

Find an approved Nikon repair facility. You have to send it in for a quote. If you approve the repair (quote) they will repair it. If it is very old and they cannot repair it they will tell you.

I need a manual for AF 35-70mm f2.8 D zoom nikkor - no idea how to use this lens.


i was not able to find a manual - this review may help http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/3570.htm
The lens consists of
  1. Zoom
  2. Focus
  3. Aperture
  4. Macro
1) Zoom - this is by push pull - so you push the lens out to wide angle 2) To switch to manual focus - will need to be done on the camera and then you can use the front control ring to focus - 4) also you can use the button to switch to macro mode - BUT only with the Zoom at 35mm - lens fully extended 3) You have an aperture range of 2.8 - 22 this varies the amount of light allowed into the lens - 2.8 is the most light - F4 to F5.6 to F8 - each change halfs the light allowed in - so changing from F4 to F5.6 half the light

Manual Focus won't work


Which camera are you using? If the body has AF/MF switch, put that also to MF.If this fails to help, take out the lens and try to change it to MF.

Putting it back together


In 1965 I did the same thing with a Nikon single focal length lens my F Photomic. This lens was far more simple then a modern AF zoom lens. I had to bite the bullet and pay a camera repair man to fix the lens. He told me that had I not tried to fix the lens myself, the repair would have cost 1/4. The only answer to your question is to take it to a camera repair man and get a quote. I would check the quote against the price of your lens on E-bay and use that to determine if you want to fix your lens or replace it.

By the way, it is very rare for dirt between elements to be so problematic that it results in a degradation of picture quality.
