You mean you don't like all the snarky condescension on the DPR forums?
Like it? Ahh, too much. But you know what they say....."Too much of anything isn't good for you". And that's why I don't hang out there .

This forum, here, is comprised of the caliber of people & attitudes that I cotton to. And that's the real deal .

hey nathan,
one thing to check, make sure the aperture ring is all the way over to a with the little button or the contact on the lens mount won't connect and the camera will think it is a manual lens which needs "allow aperture ring use" set in the menu. It will work best in "a".

First off, not to insult your intelligence, I imagine you know you "must" keep it in "A" mode on the lens. Secondly. It is often as simple as taking the lens off of the camera and replacing it back on to the unit with a very solid twist to lock. Re-start the camera and it should be fine. This has happened a couple of times with a couple of my lenses. I re-mounted them and they worked perfectly. I think people are a bit concerned about snapping them in to place too aggressively. It really has to click soundly in to the housing.
