Questions & Answers for Nikon Inc. AF Nikkor 20mm f/2.8D

Question

Nikkor 20mm F/2.8D and Nikon D600

Recently I purchased a Nikkor 20MM F/2.8D anticipating that I would be able to use the aperture ring on the lens. However the only configuration the camera will allow me to shoot in is while the lens is locked at F22. I wanted to use this lens to manually control the aperture rings for more consistent daylight time-lapse.

I have tried using all manual modes, manual focus, etc. with no luck. Anytime move the aperture ring the camera reports an "fEE" error. Am I misunderstanding how the aperture ring is supposed to work?

The lens works great outside of that. Just wish I could figure our the aperture ring.

I also have this lens and have been using it on my D7000. After reading the Nikon Answer I checked the settings on my D7000 and discovered the same ability is under Customize Settings>f6 "Customize Command Dials". It works perfectly and exactly as it would on a manual camera.
However when using the command dials on the camera I am able to set 1/3 stops (?) but when using the lens aperture ring only full stops are possible.

To use the aperture ring on the lens, access the D600 custom setting menu 'f5' and change 'Aperture setting' to Aperture ring.

(1)Press the menu button.
(2) Scroll down and highlight the pencil (custom setting menu) and press OK.
(3) Scroll down and select "f " Controls.
(4) Scroll down and select "f5" Customize command dials.
(5) Scroll down and select "Aperture Setting" then select "Aperture Ring"

You cannot use the aperture ring on the lens. It must be left at minimum aperture and you control aperture with camera. It is that way with all Nikon DSLR's.

Nikon offers two types of autofocus digital camera bodies: those with a built-in focus drive motor and those which require a lens to have a motor. Cameras such as the D60 do not have a focus motor in it so they require the lens to have the focusing motor – an “AF-S” lens. While these bodies can use a lens with no focus motor (an “AF” lens) you would have to manually turn the focus ring to bring the subject in to sharp focus.

Question

Does Nikkor have an AF-S lens at 20mm/f2.8?

My husband bought me the Nikkor 20mm f2.8D AF lens for my Nikon D60. But it appears that my camera is not compatible with the lens as far as autofocusing. I would like an autofocus lens for my Nikon D60 similar to the 20mm/f2.8. Is there such a lens? Thanks!

Not 20mm no, the closest you will get in AF-S is either the 24 f/1.4 or the 28 f/1.8

It will fit but will not autofocus, D3100 does not have built in focus drive. You need lenses with AF-S or the older AF-I designation.

Yes depending on the lens it will have a {M) manual and a (A) Auto setting. Set the lens to (M) and you can manually focus. Better lenses have a(M/A) setting that allows you to manual or auto focus without changing setting.

It is there to lock the aperture ring at F/22 so that the lens can be used on DSLR bodies allowing the camera to control aperture.
