Fellow Nikonians,

I've been looking for an answer everywhere, with no success. I'm posting this under d800 as I believe my issue stems from the camera, and not the lens

It's quite a strange one: recently got the new Samyang Cine 35mm T1.5.

Aperture ring doesn't click, all very smooth - one of the reason i bought it in the 1st place.

It's fine in Photo live view mode, but if i switch to Video live view and then turn the aperture ring, it starts clicking! As if the camera was artificially creating the click. Why would you do that d800?

Kinda beats the purpose of the lens... Any setting I'm missing?


Thanks for your help

Hi Rob,

Thanks for your reply. I've tried all modes - same result. I also tried all combinations switching the AF/M selector. Seems it still artificially clicks regardless

Really weird

How strange!

How about using the 'Power Aperture' function?

Hi, thanks for the suggestion. Didn't think about that

Indeed the power aperture keeps it silent. But that means I have to record externally right?

Cheers

Is this the electronic clicking sound? This can be disabled. It's talked about shortly after the 2 minute mark in this (excellent) video review.

It seems to be linked with adding manual lens info for non-chip lenses.

Glad that did the trick, Matrouk! It's a strange little feature, I'm not sure why they'd even throw in an electronic click sound at all.
