    Lately when I fire up the D50 with the Tamron 17 - 50 2.8 on it the display shows F-- for about 10 seconds and then shows the actual F stop. Anyone have an idea what this error is caused by?

    Thanks

    I believe that if your lens has an aperture ring, you need to set it to its farthest setting and control it in camera.

    If this is not the issue you could have something as simple as dirty contacts on the camea/lens or something as serious as a defective lens or camera.
