I tried to use my Nikon 200mm macro lens my Nikon 1 V3 today. I know that it will not auto focus with it and planed to use manual focus. It appears that I can not set the aperture. It shows aperture changes on the LCD screen but just stays too dark like it is always on f/22. I tried to use the aperture ring on the lens but get the FEE error message if I unlock it. What should I check?

Jerry, is the 200mm micro a 'G' lens?

Jerry, just checked with Nikon and the 200mm f/4 micro AF-D #1989 is listed as compatible (listed at bottom of page 2).
