Question about Cameras

1 Answer

My Nikor AF 1.8 50mm lens does not allow me to change f stops and is fixed at f22 on my Nikon N2020 AF camera. Is there some way to get this lens to allow use of all other f stop settings? Conversion ring of some kind?

    Is there a red or orange lock on the aperture ring on the lens? If so, move it to unlock the ring and you should be able to change the aperture.

    You solved my problem! I had a lens cover leash covering the orange aperture lock release. Now I have full functionality. Thanks so much!

You need to send your lens to the Nikon USA repair depot. Don't try to fix this yourself or it will cost you even more to have it put back together. Follow this link for information: Scripting must be enabled to use this site

Leave the aperture ring on the lens at f/22. You can control the aperture from the camera body, the same way as on a lens without an aperture ring, by turning the command dial.

Happy ending to this saga of the Nikon N2020 AF. I went to Walmart and purchased some real photo grade batteries. At first the result was the same, no apparent change, dead camera. I left the batteries in the camera overnight. The next day I tried depressing the shutter button with the camera turned on to S for single shot, and to my amazement the camera came alive! I don't know why or how but now it works and I don't have to bring it in for servicing. Today we will be off to the local zoo to take some shots. Can't wait. Thanks for all the comments and suggestions.

I have a Nikon D60 and have just bought a 50mm AF 1.8 D lens but find I can only use the aperture setting at 22. Is that right ?? why can't I use the other aperture settings ??


The D60 camera sets and triggers the aperture that you have selected (or the camera has selected if in auto mode) and sets the aperture as you take the picture. Moving the aperture ring on the lens will not work, in fact once you move it from the f22 position the camera will stop or possible show and error. on my older Nikon AF lenses there is a small lock to lock the aperture ring in the lowest position when mounted on a digital camera, it is found near the f2.8 side of the aperture ring. when you want to set the apertures manually, you put the camera in aperture or manual mode and set the aperture you want by moving the the rotating wheel on the grip part of the camera. the aperture you select will show in the window, you do not have to move the ring on the lens,it must remain the f22(highest numerical) position.

I can't see through the eyepiece of my new Nikon N65 too well


The lens needs to be an AF model. If pre AF or New digital AF-S then that is the problem.

When on Auto setting the F-Stop starts flashing when you press the shutter button and it wont allow you to take any photo's, any suggestions?


what type of lens are you using? if it is an AF-D .. put your aperture ring to the smallest one (biggest number). F22 or F36 depending on the lens you are using.. try again.

Take the lens off and put it back on the camera again. Make sure you turn the camera off prior to doing this. Make sure your lens is at it's smallest aperture setting.
