Q Aperture Dial on Lens

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

New Q user. Am unable to adjust aperture using the aperture dial on the lens (vs. the control dial on the camera). This is irrespective of AF or MF setting. "Scene" setting is "PASM." What am I missing? Thanks

The aperture is controlled electronically.  It will adjust when you take the picture.  It can be be manually set using the ring on the body of the lens but that only takes effect when the shutter button is pressed.  The aperture is wide open at all times until then.


note: the aperture closes down when you switch the camera off.
