Why does my GH2 (with an adapter and legacy lens) have aperture locked to '0.0'
Sep 12, 2013


I'm a bit new to camera-speak and just recently getting into the technical elements of my GH2. I've had a Nikon E Series 28 mm lens given to me as a gift (with a separate adapter to mount to my GH2) for the past year, and just recently noticed that the aperture doesn't actually seem to switch when I manually toggle between f-2.8 all the way to 22.

I've tried switching between A and M mode.

I have "shoot without lens' function on (because the camera disables altogether if I don't have the option 'on' and use this lens+adapter combo).

When I take photos, the aperture shows up at 0.0. I can't electronically control the aperture (which I understand is something you do manually with legacy lenses) but it doesn't seem to make a difference in my images. The pictures seem to be locked at f - 2.8

Is this an issue with my lens, adapter, or camera settings? Stressed. Any help is appreciated
