I just purchased the Nikon D5100. My choice for this fine camera was based on the great reviews, my old collection of Series E lenses and recent drop in price on the D5100. I did my homework knowing that the lenses were compatible with this DX camera, the only issue being manual focus only.
I bought the camera with the 18-55mm kit lens as well as the 35mm1.8g. Both work flawlessly with this camera. My question is when I install either the 50mm or the 100mm E Series lens, the camera tells me their is no len attached. Live veiw and view finder show no images. What am I doing wrong. Thanking everyone for your comments in advance
