20 Most Recent Nikon Normal AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D Autofocus Lens Questions & Answers


Do you have access to another camera? If you do, try the lens on that camera. If you get the same results, it's the lens. If no, then it's the camera body. Once you isolate the problem you'll know if you need to get the lens fixed or if you need to get the camera fixed.

If it 1) Does not work well after a FULL charge. and 2) the camera is OLD. All I can say here is your battery is OLD (bad). If the Charge time is Quick this also also an indication of and OLD tired worn out battery. They are useless after 7 years...... and they are very weak after 5. Some go bad after as little as 3.

These are unrelated issues.

The FEE means that the lens isn't locked at its minimum aperture. Turn the aperture ring on the lens to f/22. You can control the aperture from the camera body, the same way as with a lens without an aperture ring.

The r07 simply indicates how many shots you can take in the current burst before the buffer fills and the camera has to slow down while it writes the buffer to your memory card. As long as the number is more than zero, it should not affect your shooting.

Don't even think of disassembling it yourself!!!!!! Take it to a professional camera repair man and save yourself allot of money. I guarantee you that if you disassemble it yourself, you will not be able to reassemble it and the repair man will charge you much more then if you just brought him the lens in the first place.

Why do you think that the lens needs to be internally cleaned in the first place? It is very rare for so much dirt to penetrate the lens's interior that it actually affects the quality of the photographs. Don't over react to a few specks of dust between elements. The most important element to keep clean is the exterior surface of the rear element because that is where the light is most concentrated. Let a camera repair man tell you if your lens really needs such a drastic approach.

Without any electronics the camera cannot recognize the lens. Set the exposure mode to "M" (Manual). You'll have to set both the aperture and shutter speed yourself.

You'll also get no exposure assistance from the camera's light meter. You can review the picture after taking one and/or use the histogram to tune the exposure.

Is the switch on the side of the lens set to manual or auto? Sometimes it's the little things like this that we don't notice.

The FEE message indicates that the lens is not set to smallest aperture (highest number). The camera body expects this so it will have full control of the aperture. It sounds like you may be accidentally bumping or turning the aperture ring on the lens while using it or changing lenses. There is a little slide lock to lock it at f/22 to prevent this. Turn the aperture ring to 22 and move the slider so the white dot is next to the orange mark on the lens barrel.

If the lens has an aperture ring, make sure it is set on the largest f number. Make sure the lens is mounted fully on camera. Oherwise an AF 50mmm f1.8 lens should work on a D70 with no problem

That would depend on a lot of factors. Are you doing the outdoor photography in the day or at night? Are you doing the indoor photography in the day or at night? With just existing light or with aritificial light? What do you want the photos to say to the viewer?

I'm going to go out on a limb and assume you want to take pictures for real estate sales purposes. If not, please reply to this post and say what you want the photos for.

Outdoors, I'd just put the camera into the Program (P) exposure mode. Since the house and shrubbery aren't going to be moving very fast, the autofocus setting doesn't matter much (just make sure it is set to one of the autofocus modes, not manual). Leave the white balance on auto.

Indoor, if there's enough daylight coming in through the windows, go with Program exposure, any autofocus, and auto white balance. If you have to use floodlights, set the white balance to match the floods. The camera's built-in flash won't evely illuminate a room (nearer stuff will be much brighter than the farther stuff), so don't use it. You can use an external flash with a diffuser or bounced off the ceiling or a wall.

FEE means that aperture settings are incorrect. Set the aperture on the lens to F22 (using the ring). Then regulate the aperture using the dial on the D80.

You need to use right aperture(fx), shutter speed (e.g.1/x), sensitivity (ISO) and light. settings if you want to use manual settigs. In that case read carefully the instructions manual.

Sorry, but the D40x lacks an autofocus motor, depending on the lens to have one. Nikon calls such lenses AF-S. This particular lens does not have such a motor, relying on the camera to have one. The only 50mm lens currently available with an autofocus motor is this one:

Earlier this week the Nikon web site listed a new 50mm F1.8 lens with an autofocus motor, but then it was removed. Hopefully they will officially announce this lens soon.

Turn the aperture ring to its smallest setting (f/22) and lock it using the little orange switch. You can control the aperture from the camera, the same way you would control it on a lens without an aperture ring.

If you need a manual for this lens, you can download one from the manufacturer's web site at
