Nikon D70 lens won't let me shoot

\015 Nikon D70 with Nikkor 28-200 lens....Won't let me shoot a pic...When I hit the shutter release a number appears underneath the reamining pics number....like r12.............\015

Answers :

For completion here : the error is almost certainly because you have af-on on or manual focus and have done neither. r12 is not an error : its the space left in the buffer. Nothing to do with not being to click the shutter.
Remove the lens being careful not to get dirt/dust in the camera(very important).
\015\012
\015\012Clean the metal contacts around the lens and on the camera where the lens and camera meet. Your error sounds like a lens communication error.
\015\012
\015\012Again!!! Do Not Get dust/dirt/moisture/ anything in the camera.

I'm using a Nikon D3100 with a 55-200mm lens, and I'm trying to set my aperture around 1.8 to shoot bokeh, but it won't let me set it lower then 4. I had a 18-55mm lens on earlier, and it wouldn't let me set it lower then 5. My ISO is at 100. Any idea how to set it lower?


You can't set the aperture any lower than the maximum aperture of the lens. This is engraved on the lens. It may say something like f4-6.3 or something similar meaning that f4 is the largest opening of that particular lens. If you find a 55-200mm len ... Nikon D3000 Digital Camera
