Need some advise on my nikon 50 1.8
I hasn't been using tis for quite sometime till today. I mount the Len on my body but there is a error msg keep appearing in the view finder, can't shoot with it at all. I try removing it and remount again but it the same. I try to mount another Len on my camera body and it fine than I try the 50 1.8 again and the same thing happen. Anybody encounter this before?
Pls advise as the warranty from Nikon Singapore has just over.

G or D lens? If D then make sure the aperture ring is set to 22 and locked in.

A G lens won't have a manual aperture dial

There is no "Len". It's "lens". He means look at the metal contact points at the mount for dirt and corrosion.

I would suggest that TS states exactly what error message comes up. We keep guessing based on his assumptions - which could be wrong in the first place.
Alternatively TS could check with Nikon Service Center or a fellow Nikon users whether the same error message comes up there as well. That could narrow down the source of the problem. The former one might be able to give immediate advice and (if necessary) costs of repair. Better than wild guessing ...

Tks for replying. The msg I saw through the view finder is "FEE" if I have not mistaken.

Hello Gikens,

Maybe this will help? The below mentioned link from Nikon USA Support should be quite informative.

What does the FEE or F-- error message displayed on an SLR camera mean?

I encountered something similar some time back with a D300 and one of my lens. I just lightly cleaned the contacts and re-mounted the lens and the error code went away.

TS, tks for the advise, I did try cleaning the contact but still the same. I think it need servicing already.
