Fee error on d300 with Sigma lens with aperture ring

My Nikon D300 shows the fEE error when I attempt to fit a Sigma 100-300mm lens that has an aperture ring. The error shows when the aperture ring is at the f32 setting and locked. The Lens works when I alter the controls to customise the command dial to aperture ring although this obviously only works in the manual or Aperture priority settings. Other Nikon ED lenses with no aperture rings work fine on the D300. Weirdly the Sigma lens works on my D200 !

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.

Nikon d7000 keeps flashing fEE


This is with the Sigma 24mm? If this is with the Nikon 24mm AF-D or another lens with an aperture ring then turn the aperture ring to its smallest setting (largest f/number) and control the aperture from the camera body the same way as with a lens without an aperture ring.

If it really is with the Sigma lens, try cleaning the contacts on the back of the lens and in the lens mount on the camera body.

What does FEE mean? The camera won't take a picture and I see that in the display of my Nikon N90S


FEE error message displayed on SLR camera LCD Description If the cameras LCD screen displays "FEE" in the area where the aperture is normally displayed, please ensure that the lens is attached to the camera correctly. This error message will appear if the lens is not attached correctly to the camera or if you are not using a CPU lens such as the Nikon AF or Nikkor P lenses. Alternatively, if the lens has an aperture ring, it may not be set to f22 (or the highest aperture number on the aperture ring - normally marked in orange). Select the aperture number marked in orange on the lens and lock it using the aperture locking switch to prevent this occurring again.

The FEE error message

Set to F22, or the highest aperture number - normally marked in orange. Note the locking switch.
If the above did not resolve the problem and you still experence the the error display FEE, please contact your local Nikon office. Before doing so please also check the following.

1157d.gif That the EE servo coupling highlighted above on the lenses has not been broken. That the F-min switch highlighted above on the camera body has not been broken. If either of the two items above are broken please contact your local Nikon service center.

I have a Sigma 70-300mm lense which, when I attach it to my D300 gives me an error message of FEE. I was assured when I bought the lense that it would work. Am I doing something wrong?


You didn't specify which Sigma 70-300mm lens (Sigma has at least five different versions, and I'm not referring to the lens mount), but from the error message I assume the lens has an aperture ring. Turn the aperture ring to its smallest setting (largest f/number) and lock it in place. Control the aperture from the camera, the same way as on a lens without an aperture ring.

If the lens doesn't have an aperture ring, please reply to this post specifying the exact model of the lens. That's all of the numbers and letters around the 70-300mm, like AF, DGO, f/4.5, etc.

I just bought a Tokina 100mm f/2.8 AT-X M100 AF Pro D Macro Auto Focus Lens from B & H and put it on my Nikon D300. When I press the button a blinking FEE appears. What seems to be the problem?...


The FEE error indicates that the camera cannot control the full range of the lens aperture. If your lens has a mechanical aperture ring, rotate the aperture to its smallest opening, or highest f-number - normally marked in orange. Select this aperture and lock it using the aperture locking switch to prevent this message from appearing again.

Did the sigma 75-300 dl will work with nikon d300?...i mean the auto focus and matrix focus


Yes. The D300 has a focus motor built into the body and thus does not need one in the lens. The lens will also meter properly with the D300.

According to the manual for my Sigma 105mm f2.8 EX DG Macro lens with my Nikon D90, when using P or Sutter priority auto mode the diaphragm control ring needs to be set to the smallest aperture(f32) and...


In all modes the aperture ring on the lens should be locked at the smallest aperture. In the M and A modes you control the aperture by turning the command dial on the front of the camera. In P and S modes you control the aperture indirectly by turning the command dial on the back of the camera.
