    Cannot change the f stop setting in "A" priority mode. Anyone ever have this problem?

    Is this with any one particular lens or all lenses?

    Cheers!

  4. How are you trying to change the aperture? Are you using the front command dial or the aperture ring ?

    I tried my 105 vr I recieved on 6/7/07, my 70-300 vr, and my 85 1.4.

    Front command dial.

    Thanks
     
  8. This sounds like a problem with the body then. Even if the custom setting (sorry can't remember which one and I don't have the D200 here) was set to use the aperture ring, the G lenses should still work with the command dial.

    It may need Nikon to look at it. :(

    Could you have set aperture lock inadvertently? I don't even know if the D200 has a locking function, but on the D2X aperture lock is activated with the subcommand dial while pressing the lock button on the mode dial.

    I have come to that conclusion. The warranty on my D200 ran out in march, darn it.
    The problem started when I was trying out my new 105 vr which works ok on my D2x.

    Thanks,

  11. Do you turn the camera off before switching lenses? VR lenses can screw themselves or the camera body if the power is not turned off.
