Hey SHUTTER HEAD,
Without knowing what camera you have I would set your camera's aperture to f/8. I would have your camera mode set to either aperture priority or manual, and leave the aperture on the camera set to f/8.

Sincerely,
Allan

I have a Quantaray 28-200mm AF zoom lens Nikon, I use Nikon D80, are they compatible?


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

The Bower SLY500PN High-Power 500mm f/8 Telephoto with T-mount attached to my Nikon D5200 shows 'nop lens attched'. What is the problem?


There is no problem. The lens simply does not have the electronics for the camera to detect. You need to use the lens in Manual mode (turn the mode dial to M). You'll have to set both the shutter speed and aperture yourself, without any help from the camera's exposure meter.

You can take a picture, look at it on the back of the camera (preferably with the histogram) and adjust the exposure accordingly. Repeat until you get a good exposure.

I recently obtained a used Quantaray for Nikon 500mm f8 f/8 Mirror lens. I have a Nikon d3000 and I am not sure how to attach it to my camera.


For Nikon AF and manual focus SLRs. The compatible T Mount System makes it possible to use most any single lens reflex camera in combination with various front camera attachments such as telescopes, mirror lenses and slide duplicators. The T Mount is a metal connector that screws onto the compatible front attachment and allows this combination to be coupled to the SLR camera lens mount.

Turn the aperture ring to its smallest opening (largest f/number). You can control the aperture from the camera body, the same way you do so on a lens without an aperture ring.

Using a 500mm fixed aperture lens on a Pentax ist


Use "exposure compensation" (the button with a plus/minus symbol). It allows you to lighten (toward the + side) or darken (toward the - side).

Nikon d40, t-mount adapter, showing error no lens attached.


You'll need to switch to M (Manual) mode. You won't get any metering through the lens, nor will you get any autofocus.

I am looking at a 400/640mm preset lens,


Pre-set depending on the model, can be fixed aperture, and or fixed focal length. You have to read the spec sheet to know, or call the dealer.

I have a fixed 500 mm / F8 mirror lens. It is refered to as a fixed lens, because nothing is adjustable. I have aperture and filter drop-ins to do the equivalent of some adjustments.

Adjusting the f stop


Lock the aperture in F 22. This will get rid of FEE. Now control the aperture settings from the body ( control infront of shutter release )
