My Nikon 85mm f 1.4 is not connecting with my D700. It's saying that it's a non cpu lens. Any insight?

Nikon has made at least two different 85mm f/1.4 lenses. Some of them have an aperture ring. If your lens is one of those, turn the ring to its smallest aperture (largest f/number, it should be f/16).

What does flashing F or in Nikon D700 control panel indicate?


When there is a capital F, and in front of it is a triangle, it means there is no lens in or a non CPU lens.
If you did install a very old lens, or a lens from an other brand, the camera can't use the autofocus and picture settings. You only can use these lenses in manual. That means not only the focus has to be set manual, but all other things like time and aperture.

Can Nikon F3 lenses be used on a digitial Nikon body?


Yes and no. The lenses will fit with no problem.

On DX cameras (everything except the D700 and the D3 series) the smaller sensor causes the lenses to seem longer. A 50mm lens on a digital body will give you about the same image as a 75mm lens would on a film body.

Older non-CPU lenses do not have the electronics to communicate with a newer camera. On some of these cameras you won't be able to use the camera's light meter.

I just purchased the Nikon AF f/1.8 85mm lens and it's giving me an error message on my D300, it wont let me change the apeture via lens ring,if the ring is locked I can adjust it with the controll wheel...


There doesn't seem to be a problem with the 85mm.

Nikon has made a lot of different 50mm f/1.8 lenses, so I won't say anything about them without knowing which particular type.
