Hi! I bought a Z6 a few months back, and while it generally works really well with all of my F lenses, I've noticed a pretty serious issue with old 70-200 f/2.8 VR lenses.The school I work at has several that the students don't use anymore, having migrated a few years back from Nikon D2H bodies to smaller Canon Rebels. I've run into the same issue with all three of the lenses I've tested. Sometimes it will work fine. But, other times, I hit the AF button and instead of focusing, it sounds kind of like the VR grinds for a second, a message like F-- flashes on the screen (I'm not sure of the exact message, because it doesn't happen all the time) and the focus won't move at all. Once it happens the first time, it won't  focus at all for quite some time. I never had these issues with my previous D cameras (D810, D7100, D500). I shot a basketball game the other day, and out of curiosity, I used my  Z6 with a 24-70mm lens and put the 70-200 on my D500. I had no problems with the D500, so there's something special about the way the lens interacts with my Z camera. Anyone ever see anything like this? Any ideas how to fix it?


Thanks in advance!
