D7000- Tokina 10-17 Problem
Posted 24 September 2011 - 05:11 PM
I also tried removing all user settings and setting up from scratch, no Joy, then this morning,Sunday, I tried the camera again with the Nikon lense and everything is working fine again, so I suspect the 10-17 but am not game to put it on again in case it screws the camera up. Any useful help would be much appreciated,

I'm probably wrong but it might be worth checking...

I had already given the contacts on the lense and camera a wipe over with a lense cloth but it didn't make a difference.
After contacting their warranty dept. their man suggested that I try cleaning the contacts with a plastic rubber.
I was pretty sceptical, but lo and behold it seems to have done the job!
I then changed back and forth between lenses a couple of times and everything still seems to be working ok. Now I just got to get back in the water !

indeed lens wipes are not enough to clean contacts.
A pencil eraser is best and has solved many a lens/camera communication problem i've seen.
I've even had issues with mild corrosion build up on a speedlight contact that could not be cleaned wiht an eraser and needed scraping with either a finger nail or even a metal edge, albeit gently.
