David -

The lowest setting is the highest number; f22 is lower than f4. It's little counter-intuitive, but the lowest setting means the least amount of light - or the smallest aperture opening - not the numerical "f" value of the opening.

Simply twist the aperture ring until the highest value "f" number is selected. Many lenses have a small tab or latch to lock them in this position - if yours does, you can use it to prevent this from happening again. You would use a command dial on most camera bodies to electronically change the aperture opening.

Good luck!

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
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Yes, the Quantaray Autofocus lens will focus automatically on the D80.

SOURCE: I was wondering, are all quantaray lenses

No. Quantaray makes a wide range of lenses, with a wide selection of mounts. This is because the various camera manufacturers like Canon, Nikon, and Pentax have proprietary mounts. A Quantaray lens for Canon will not fit on a Nikon, for example. You need to specify the mount when you buy your lens.

Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number). You can control the aperture from the camera the same way you do it on lenses without an aperture ring.

SOURCE: I have a Nikon D70,

In order for the aperture to be controlled by the camera's program or primary and secondary control knobs, the lens must be set to the smallest opening - or highest number value f stop. The aperture must be operated by the ring if it is not left in the smallest opening position.

The FEE code you are seeing refers to a communication error between the lens and the camera body. Sometimes, simply removing the lens from the body and reseating it to the body will solve the problem. While the lens is off the body, carefully inspect the gold colored contacts on the lens and mating contacts on the camera body. Remove any dirt or debris found, being careful not to allow it to fall into the camera - or land on the back glass of the lens.

I found another explanation and possible remedy that stated:

"A flashing "FEE" is an improperly set aperture ring in 99.9% of all cases with this error message (i.e. user error). In very rare circumstances it can be caused by a damaged aperture ring (small lug broken from back edge) that can't "tell" the camera it is at the minimum position. If the aperture rings on the lens is set to minimum aperture (highest number) and locked there, but you still get a FEE error, it's possible that sloppy tolerances are causing the lens aperture ring to not move the little switch at the 8 o'clock position (on the D70 lens mount) as far as necessary to get a proper indication of minimum aperture. Try to see if the aperture ring (while locked) will move slightly when mounted on the camera to clear the FEE error.

Another remote possibility is that the little switch at the 8 o'clock position mentioned above is not functioning properly (sometimes they get dirty). Try "exercising" it by moving it back and forth with your finger, then try the lenses again. Usually FEE has nothing at all to do with CPU contacts (with a reverse engineered third party lens anything is possible I suppose), but it doesn't hurt to clean them to eliminate that possibility."

You can also try a different Nikon compatible lens. If the trouble is still present, the camera may need to be returned for repair. If the the problem goes away, then the issue is tied to the lens itself. This would mean the the lens needs repair.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply - thanks!

The focusing ring on my quantaray 28-200 lense will not turn on my d80 nikon camera


If the lens is made for Nikon, it should go on the camera. I just put a zoom lens from the analog days (80-200 f1:2.8) on my D80 and it works fine. Don't forget to put the aperture ring to the highest setting (f 1:22) and lock it.

I hope you mean FEE.

Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number). If the ring has a lock, lock it in place. You control the aperture from the camera body, just as you would on a lens with no aperture ring.

Aperture


You need to set the aperture ring on the lens to the minimum f-stop number, i.e. f22,f32. The camera controls the aperture rather than a mechanical setting on the lens

Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest aperture (largest f/number) and lock it there if it has a lock. You control the aperture through the command dial on the camera body, not the aperture ring on the lens.
