While out and about my neighborhood last couple of days shooting everything in sight, I noticed that when I press down the
the shutter release button, the image jumps up just a bit. When I take my finger off of the button (without taking a shot) the
image falls down. I am hoping that the optics have not separated from the adhesive. Just now prior to getting onboard NF,
I very gently shook the lens and I could hear rattling as something has obviously come loose. Now I am curious as to
perhaps this is the reason the VR is not all that great. The lens still takes great photos. I tried this issue on both D200
bodies and it is the same event. Going a little further I am also wondering if this is the reason the lens does not perform well
while in P Mode. Granted it is an old lens as is evident by VR letters in Red. Cheers.
Thanks very much for any and all assistance,
