If you're asking about manual lenses, it depends on the lens. Use the length of the lens, 50mm=50mm. Don't worry about "equivalents"

You enter whatever it says on the lens.

Are you getting this message when you turn the camera on? If you are using a manual lens, just enter its focal length, as the other replies tell you. If not, just try to dismount and remount the lens, this usually fixes any problem the camera might have had with registering your lens correctly.

Hope that helps!
