Need a technical explanation for a strange phenomenon/D800E/105mm
2 months ago

Hi all, I'd appreciate if someone could explain to me the following. I have a D800E and among other lenses I have a Nikon AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED Lens. I mostly shoot in AF mode, VR on, M/A mode. It happens many times that in certain situations when I use the front dial command to set aperture, that I cannot set it down to f2.8 and can only set it above a certain value (for example f3.2 and above), but if I then choose a different subject it will allow me to set it to f2.8. This has happened to me with other lenses too (24-70, 70-200). Is this normal behavior? And if so, what is the explanation? Thanks.

ANSWER:
Nikon D800E
