K20D issue

I was out taking pics today with my K20D and twice it stopped, that is, nothing happened when I depressed the shutter. Both times taking out and putting the battery back in fixed it. Has anyone experienced this? I had a Tamrom 17-50 f2.8 non-VC lens on it. It didn't occur to me that it may have been a communication issue with the lens or I would have tried removing and placing the lens back on the mount. Any ideas? Thanks.

Was focus locked on and confirmed? In AF-S mode the camera won't fire if out of focus.

I don't remember since this was a new thing and I was wondering what was happening. However, after removing and replacing the battery it had no problem focusing on the same spot.

If it happens again I'll take more notice.

You might try cleaning the battery contacts or try a different battery.

I haven't seen the issue come back again. It leads me to think it is one of the following:

1. It is an intermittent issue that showed up only on one occasion and may come up again, but who knows when.
2. Perhaps I wasn't paying attention and the camera was still processing the prior capture and writing to the card (I shoot in RAW + JPEG)
3. There was a lens communication issue, which I've heard is a possibility with third party lenses, but this was the only time it showed up.
