Having problems with your Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens ?

F-- appears in window with the 18-135mm attached to D80

\015 I often see F-- appear in the window with the 18-135mm lens attached to my D80. By re-attaching the lens, the flashing F-- goes away, but can return intermittently. Please advise\015

Answers :

F-- means that the camera cannot find an apeture with the other settings that it is on put yur ISO on auto and put the camera in automatic mode and it should work but it might be a problem with the apeture in the lense, in which case it would be very hard to fix and you would probably end up desroying the lense in the process, if you did not go to a specialist.

My D80 fell from a foot n half above the ground level well packed in a good quality carry case few days back.uv filter attached to 18-135 Nikor lens cracked & lens cap was jammed. After carefully removing pieces of the uv filter & taking pictures dark patches appear top corners of pictures taken. What could have gone wrong & how serious does the problem look?


Hi, allow me to suggest using another lens to see if you still see the dark patches in the top corners. If not it is the lens, if so it is the camera. Either way it sounds as though something is maladjusted. Call Nikon digital 1-800-645-6689. ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

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." I tried detaching and reattaching the lens numerous times. I also tried cleaning the contacts to no avail. The only mode that the shutter will release in is the Manual mode. While in the M mode I couldn't adjust the aperture.

Just got a new Nikon D80. I'm used to a Coolpix which has continuous images on the LCD. The D80 appears to present an image only when monitoring the picture and not while using the monitor to compose the shot. I assume this is because it is of the SLR breed. Am I correct?

Viewfinder I just got my *ist DS Monday, and this is my first DSLR. I have a general question, which I hope you guys can help me with. The image framing from the viewfinder is significantly different from the finished photo. The finished product always has a wider angle of view from what I am seeing while framing the shot. At the widest setting, there isn't much difference. At full zoom with an attached Nikon 6t, the object I am shooting is large in the view finder, but it appears half sized


Viewfinder magnification has nothing to do with this. \015\012It's a framing accuracy, viewfinder coverage issue. \015\012\015\012\015\012Viewfinder magnification has to do with how large the focusing/framing field appears, optically, to your eye. Pe ... Pentax *ist DS Digital Camera
