Turn the aperture ring to its smallest setting (largest f/number). Control the aperture from the camera, the same way you do so on a lens without an aperture ring.

Fee error on d300 with Sigma lens with aperture ring


Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number) and then forget it's there. You can control the aperture from the camera body, the same way as on lenses without an aperture ring.

I have a d80 and while I have a Nikon AE lens, I also have a collection of older Nikon lens's. They work outside but don't work with a flash. Can you tell me if there is any way to fix this problem?...


I found this in my D80 manual regarding non-cpu lenses and their limitations:

The non-CPU lenses listed below may be used, but only when the camera is in mode M. Selecting
another mode disables the shutter release. Aperture must be adjusted manually via the lens aperture
ring and the camera autofocus system, metering, electronic analog exposure display,

** and TTL flash control can not be used. **

Except where otherwise noted, the electronic range fi nder can be used with
lenses that have a maximum aperture of f/5.6 or faster.
• AI-modifi ed, AI-, AI-S, or Series E Nikkor
• Medical Nikkor 120 mm f/4 (can only be used at
shutter speeds slower than 1/180 s)
• Refl ex Nikkor (electronic range fi nder can not be
used)
• PC Nikkor (electronic range fi nder can not be
used when shifting or tilting lens)
• AI-type teleconverter *
• PB-6 Bellows focusing attachment (attach in vertical
orientation; can be used in horizontal orientation
once attached) *
• Auto extension rings (PK 11A, 12, 13; PN-11) *
* Electronic range fi nder can be used if maximum effective
aperture is f/5.6 or faster.

There is a great deal of info in the manual about the use of other compatible Nikon devices. If you have lost your manual, you can view / download it here:

Hello sir


The f-- message can mean several different things.

The easiest to rectify is the case where a Nikkor AF lens is not completely clicked into position. In that case, make sure to turn the lens firmly into place.

Further, depending on the camera mode, if the lens is an AF-D style lens, the aperture must be set to the smallest aperture (that is, the highest aperture number, usually 22 or 16).

If the lens is a non-chipped lens (T-mount, AI-S, etc.), you will only be able to use it in "A" (aperture-priority) or "M" (manual) modes. The "f--" message shows up for other modes.

80~200 not focusing on my D200


If lens has aperture ring, set to min aperture before mounting (f22 etc)
With heavier lenses it is not so easy to tell when lens clicks in all the way to mount, Lens wont autofocus if not clicked in to mount just so. Also both camera and lens should be set to AF.

It does sound like your lens diaphragm/aperture ring coupling mechanism is in need of repair.

Nikon D200 with Sigma 18-200 DC AF D lens


Yes, please turn off the camera when changing lens, make sure on the lens is on its full aperture if you are doing auto. if doest not work to make is test turn the camera on the manual mode and the lens too.
If your lens is new there should not be any problem, if you bought the lens used make sure all the points are clear not rusted. some time when lens fall of it breaks its points inside.

Camera (D200) no longer sees that the diaphragm lock is on. If I jiggle the diaphragm ring it works for amoment. How do I fix this?Thanks


With the lens off, look at the camera mount area. If you are looking straight at the mount, there is a small tab sticking out at about 7oclock on the outside edge of the mount ring. The tab is spring loaded and may be damaged. You should be able to push the tab toward the base of the camera and it will snap back if functioning properly. If it feels loose or doesn't spring back, then switch that ab controls is not being activated.

I'll offer the same answer I just gave on a D200 question: With the lens off, look at the camera mount area. If you are looking straight at the mount, there is a small tab sticking out at about 7oclock on the outside edge of the mount ring. The tab is spring loaded and may be damaged.
