    can't see anything through the view finder low light

    I recently bought a Nikon D800 and a AF-S Nikkor 24-120mm 1:4 G ED lens and once it starts getting darker my view through the view finder reduces to an impossible level to see anything. in live view I can see nothing is it something i have set or not set?

    Please help!

    Welcome to the forum. In brighter light, how do the pictures look? Overexposed or underexposed? If you snap a shot when you can't see because of darkness, how do they look? My first thought is that the aperture is stuck closed on the lens.

    A stuck aperture is easy to identify. If you pick the camera up and look directly into the lens, you should not see any aperture blades.
    Don't mind me... I'm out roaming around somewhere between Zone III and VII.


    Go forth and actuate!
