Cosina for Nikon lens question

view profile

Old Brooklyn Photographer says:

I purchased a Cosina 70-210mm f/4.5-5.6 MC AF Wide Angle Telephoto Lens for Nikon SLR to be used with my Nikon D50, but when I try to use it, it won't focus and displays fEE in the upper left of my control screen (where my F-stop status is normally displayed.) I called the seller and they assured me that that lens should work with a D50. I have the option of sending it back for an exchange, but will have to pay shipping both ways.
I was hoping someone out there might have some idea, before I wind up paying more for shipping than I did for the lens.

Thanks in advance,
Old Brooklyn

check to see that your aperature ring is all the way to f22. also make sure the lens is fully seated in the mounting ring.

Is the lens an AIS? D50 may have limitations with classic lenses.

As in St. Nicon (Nikon) Metanoeite? The Armenian Hermit? The Preacher of Repentance? Cleave to humanity ~~ Flee Pride ~~ Repent!...

Does this mean that Yutz wonders from nation to nation in his bare feet, carrying all of his earthly possessions on his back, helping people? (With their camera issues?)

Well, St. Yutz saved me $20 in needless shipping fees. For that I am grateful. :)

If your camera bag is anything like mine, it most definitely counts.
