    Hi chettyleigh_, I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box?
    What do you mean? Is there an error message that says that the lens is not attached when it is or do you mean something else? If you want your question answered, you always need to give detailed information so the reviewer does not have to guess what you are talking about.

Nikon d3000 has 'lense not attached error'


What lens do you have attached? If it's an older lens with the electronics, the camera will not be able to communicate with it and thus report lens not attached. You can switch to manual mode and still use the lens, but you'll have to set the exposure without any assistance from the camera's light meter.

It it is a more modern lens with the electronics, try cleaning the contacts on the back of the lens and in the mount on the body.

I have a Nikon D-40 I'm currently using a 55-200


Fisheye is the extreme of a wide angle lens. I think you are not using a fish eye lens, but a fish eye adopter. That is a lens that will "shorten" the focal length of a lens most of the time with 30 % sometimes with 50% when you put it in front of your lens. So you could make a 24 mm lens look or act like a 12 mm.
On your tele lens this only will slightly shorten the 55 mm, but even 50 % of 55 is 27 mm and can't be seen as a fish eye.
I think when you put this on a short lens, the picture you get will be round, like you were using a real fish eye.

How do i attach the my zeikos 52mm HD Dslr MC AF 2x telephoto lens to my nikon d90?


You don't. The Zeikos attaches to the front of lens with a 52mm filter thread, which then attaches to the D90. If you have the 18-55mm lens, for example, this will fit onto the front of that lens, effectively converting it to a 36-110mm lens. If you have the 18-105mm lens, this won't fit onto it.
This device is really intended for use with cameras that don't have interchangeable lenses. With your D90, you're much better off using another lens instead of putting this onto the front of another lens.

How to attach filters to a Rokinon 500mm/ 1000mm Mirror Lens for Canon EOS


For the Rokinon 500mm F/6.3 lens, you can either attach 95mm filters to the front or 34mm filters to the rear of the lens.

For the Rokinon 500mm F/8 lens, you can only attach 30.5mm filters to the rear of the lens.

To attach a filter to the rear of the lens, remove the lens from the camera (or take the rear lens cap off). There's a threaded screw mount just inside of where the lens fits onto the camera. Take your filter and screw it into place. Hand tighten until it's snug and doesn't project in the way---remember, you're going to want to take it off again later.

I get the letter "F" flashing on and off. What is it?


What lens do you have attached? A flashing F-- indicates the camera and lens are not communicating. This can happen for several reasons:

1. There is no lens attached. Attach a lens.

2. There is a lens attached, but it's what Nikon calls a non-CPU lens. The lens lacks the electrical contacts to communicate with the camera. Set the exposure mode to Manual (M) and adjust the aperture using the aperture ring on the lens. You won't get any metering assistance from the camera's built-in meter.

3. There is a CPU lens attached. Remove the lens, clean the contacts both on the lens and the mount, then reattach the lens. If that doesn't solve it, then either the lens or the camera (or both) need service.

Err 01communications between the camera and lens is faulty. Clean the lens contacts.


Some people have reported that this error comes up when they have changed a lens on the camera, If the previous lens was IS enabled and was switched on when the old lens was attached, re attach the previous lens and switch off before attaching the new lens.
If this does not work, clean the contacts with a cotton bud dipped in methylated spirits. Hold the lens above you when doing this so nothing falls into the lens.

A700 flashing "lens" message


Is the lens switched to manual as well as the mode dial. If the compatable lens is a minolta requiring an M42 adapter make sure that the protruding arm/rod is operating the shutter when depressed and that the adapter when fitted operates the lens when turned from auto to manual. Good luck.

Nikon d40, t-mount adapter, showing error no lens attached.


You'll need to switch to M (Manual) mode. You won't get any metering through the lens, nor will you get any autofocus.
