My Nikon 1 lenses work great, but when I install the FT1 and mount any of my AF-S lenses (50mm f/1.4, 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6, 70-200mm f/2.8) I get the message that says "Check lens. Pictures can only be taken when a lens is attached." But of course there is a lens attached! Is there a setting that I need to affect to allow the use of the FT1? I saw nothing in the instructions.

I took a quick pic of my dartboard in my office today (yeah, I have a bristle board in my office) with the 70-200 and TC 17E II (set at 200mm - which means 340mm * 2.7 = 918mm equiv.), but it was simply an elementary test and really hard to steadily hold even with the VR. Look closely at the near end of the dart flight (the intended focus point) and you will see the movement (holy moly! I just looked at the meta data and it was taken at f/6.3, and 1/13 sec! - jeez I'm proud of myself ). Tomorrow I'll get some outdoors with the 70-200 TC 17 at long range and the 200-400 with the TC 20E III (obviously some with tripod). Those should be interesting.
