Nikkor 24-80 24-85mm D competability with Nikon Df


Am brand new to this forum and have a Nikon Df question.

Just purchased the new Nikon Df along with a used but mint 24-85 2.8-4 Nikkor AF D.

Reasson I purchased the camera is that I have had on hand a bunch of old Ai & AiS lenses and I have always liked to shoot in the Manual or "A" priority mode.

I can not seem to be able to manually set the apperature ring on the lens in eithe "Apperature Priority" mode or in "Manual" mode without getting an "fEE" error code in the viewfinder

The only way to set the apperature is to set the lens at f22 then use the control dial in front of the camera below the shutter release.

I was under the impression that I should be able to use the apperature ring on pretty much any Nikkor lens, and this lens is certainly a newer one.

Any suggestions?

Thank you

Nikon Df
