    ok I bought my Nikon 50mm 1.8 prime lens today. Had to buy it used because noone in town had a new one till monday and I want to shoot with it this weekend.

    I am curious about the aperture ring around the end nearest the camera body. The number 22 is in red and any time I Move the ring off that setting my camera won't function. Even in fully manual mode it just gives me a flashing error message in the window of F33.

    Can anyone tell me what this means? My sigma lens does the same thing.

    I'm not a Nikon user. This is what my conclusion is, based on your post.

    You are using an old lens with a new digital camera. Your camera does not require you to manually change the aperture on the lens. The camera changes the aperture electronically. Setting the lens to f/22 is what allows the camera to control the aperture settings.
