    Hi everybody!
    I only shot in M mode, have the Rokinon fisheye (8mm 1:2.8) attached to my Nex 7 carefully following the instructions in the lens manual. I still get an error message saying "Cannot recognize this lens. Attach it properly." :crying:
    Could anybody PLEASE help me.
    Thanks!

    Hi CatLady, welcome to the forum. :)

    You have to do a little menu diving to get this to work. Menu>Setup>Release w/o Lens>Enable

    That should get you on track. ;)

    Bimjo, you just MADE MY DAY!!!! It works!!!!
    Now, I have a follow up question. Do I have to change back the Release w/o lens off when I change lens?
    Sorry if it is a dumb question. Just making sure I do not goof on this one
    Thanks!

    Nope, set it and forget it. It should probably be the default setting since so many people use non-e mount lenses on the NEX bodies.

    The lens will work in A mode so you can set the aperture on the lens and let the camera set the shutter speed if you so desire. As opposed to shooting full manual mode that is. ;)
