FEE error - Nikon D70 + Nikon 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED VR lens

Hi there,

I got me a shiny Nikon D70 dslr. I've figured out that the FEE error with my Nikon 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED VR lens is because l have to manually set the lens's aperture to the narrowest. I can confirm that makes the FEE error disappear.

My question is: Is this normal behaviour or is the lens faulty? If it's faulty it may be that the lens is too advanced for the D70, or that the lens's mounting surface is damaged, so l'll have to go back and investigate that, but I really hope it's normal behaviour.

Look forward to your replies!

P.S.: As l recall, the light metering on the D70 works fine once that is done but I have to test out the lens again tomorrow to confirm this (l don't have it with me).

Canon EOS 6D Nikon D70
