ist Ds av problem

I have a slightly different problem with my aperture control on my ist Ds. When I set it to Av, it "acts" like the aperture control is working properly...i.e. the scroll wheel sets it in the display to any aperture I choose, and automatically sets the shutter speed accordingly. But it always overexposes if set to any aperture other than the largest aperture. After looking at the properties of some of my photos on my computer, I realized it ALWAYS uses the largest aperture setting of any of three lenses I use. For example, while it may say it is using f22 on the camera, the properties of the photo say it is actually using f5.6. Any help would be appreciated.

Ok, perhaps you can help me with another question. I just tried to manually set the aperture on my Tamron Aspherical AF 28-80 (non digital) lens, and it makes the camera automatically go into MF mode...is that normal or a setting issue?

Ripit, Thank you so much! You solved it. I had already thought of the aperture ringsetting on the lens itself, and checked that to no avail. One of my lenses doesn't even have a manual aperture ring. But I was unaware of the "allow use of aperture..." setting on the custom settings of the camera. I set that, and it works perfectly. I was worried I had screwed the firmware up. I can't thank you enough!

Hello! I'm brand new here. Looking for help. I recently bought an ist DS on ebay. When it arrived, I played around with it for awhile, and everything worked great, while looking up some info online, such as what memory cards it supports, etc., I discovered the firmware update. Followed the instructions, to a t. The firmware upload said complete. all the settings seem to be normal, everything works on the camera except....the shutter does not work unless the lens is removed. then it works just fine, also the autofocus does not work at all. When I turn the power on, and when I turn the lever to field of depth preview, there is a barely audible click, like it is trying to engage, but can not. I have tried three lenses, with the same issues. Please help!!
