Hello,

I have Nikon DSLR D80 camera.  When I use it with 50 mm lenses,  the pictures come out excellent.  When use it with Zoom Lenses (28 - 80 or 28-135 Nikon Lenses)  the pictures are very dark and not as sharp.  I tried different settings,  but so far nothing is working.

Zoom lenses generally have a smaller aperture (= larger f-stop) than the typical 1.2 to 1.8 of 50 mm lenses.  It sounds like the camera's auto-exposure is not enabled.  Check to see that it is in aperture priority or shutter priority auto-exposure mode.
