Fee error on d300 with Sigma lens with aperture ring

\015 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 !\015

Answers :

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.

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 (lar ... Nikon D300 Body Only Digital Camera

Nikon D3 showing a repeat fEE problem which I understand normally reflects non-alignment of the aperture ring at maximum f-stop. I have interchanged a number of standard and zoom lenses between my D3 and DX2 where the same lense works on the DX2 and shows the error message referred to on the D3.

I have copied and pasted someone elses problem, because it is the same one I am having. So if I want to use the aperture for taking Manual photos I cannot do this because when it goes off of F22, it reads FEE, error. "I have nikon d80 with the fEE error code blinking... I know this means that the aperture is not locked at the 22 but it will not allow me to change the aperture settings. Please help us!!!"


Lock the aperture ring at its smallest opening (in this case, F22). Change the aperture setting by turning the subcommand dial (the one in front, unless you changed it in the setup menu).Of course, you can only change the aperture directl ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 28-80mm Lens

My Vivitar Series 1 24-70 manual focus ais lens won't work on program in my Nikon FA. I bought both new, but have stored them for a long time.

I have a Nikon D80 with a 18-135mm lens. I recently got an F-- where the aperture should appear. The error message in the manual says that "No lens attached."

Hi. I have a Nikkon D3000, a Sigma 105mm lens, and a round flash ring. I have the settings as: ISO: 200, Shutter Speed: 1/200, F25 for close teeth photos and F8 for face shots. Now I am a dentist and first time user of this camera got the settings from a dental photography website. The proble is: When I take pictures with the flash ring on they turn up black, without the flash ring on and the camera flash on, the pictures turn out clear buy very dark. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

I have a Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4.5 Macro lens working on a Nokon D40X and Nikon D300. For medium to long distances the autofocus does not seem to work with this lens. I think it used to but now I notice that from about 40 feet away the autofocus does not work. The same happens with both cameras. Other lenses work fine so I don't think it is the camera. Is there any history of problems or is it a feature of the lens? thanks, Richard Brand
