Earlier today I had decided to use one of my Nikon D200s with a newly acquired above mentioned lens. When I had everything ready to go, I pressed down on the shutter release button and nothing happened. I then looked on the top lcd screen and in big letters, there was; ERR. Just ERR, nothing else. I again pressed down very gently on the shutter release button and for about one nano second, there was a whrrrrr noise and then it quit. The Letters ERR were still flashing in the viewfinder and on the lcd screen. I went ahead and pressed down on the shutter release button again and the camera and lens worked just fine, after it made a clunky noise. From then on, it continued to work just fine. I then placed the 18-70mm Nikon on the D200 and there were no problems. This only happens with the newer lens.
Any suggestions and comments will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks a million,
