d7000 "err" error(5 posts) (3 voices)
Make sure that the lens is at the maximum aperture (orange/red number) and locked before it is attached to the camera. If it is set right there is either something up with the lens or the camera. Most of the time it is because the lens isn't set to max aperture (f22 in this case) which when using with an AF camera is required when using AF, or AF-D lenses.
thanks mate i appriciate your help.i took it back to the dealer today and tried a brand new 50 mm 1.8d lens same message appeared.but my lens worked perfectly on d700.so they said something is wrong with the camera and they are sending camera to nikon for repair.not a good start.
Great...I just bought that camera today for my daughters 15th birthday. Does anybody have a suggestion on a lens. Want to spend around 300. Is there a good like 18-105ish in that range someone could recommend? And she said she would like a fixed 50mm also...any suggestions there. Thanks.
And would like to hear how the new or fixed camera turns out. Thanks.
The camera is a solid camera but as with all things technology it is luck of the draw sometimes.
I got my D7000 a year and change ago and have only had occasional problems with one of my SD cards. Totally love the camera nothing like having 53 years or so lenses that can be used on the camera provided certain modifications are done.
The first two AF lenses that I picked up for my D7000 and the S2 pro I picked up right before that had the Err happen on them but I ended tearing their CPU contact sections down and reseating them. Both lenses have been spectacular since then. Really can't wait for my D800 to show up since it will be like a super D7000.
