I have a problem. My Nikon D7000 is not talking to my lens, well both actually. I have a f2.8 70-200 and 15-70. Neither are focusing when I press the shutter, any ideas please?
I've had a problem with the camera since the beginning, sending it back 4 times already!!
I've re set the camera, but still the same. Thanks in advance.

One thing to check is make sure the AF/M switch on the camera body is set to AF and not M. Its located below the lens release button.

I also had a problem when switching lenses. I had to seat the lens a couple of times before it made contact and would focus. I cleaned the contacts on my lenses and camera and havent had the problem since.

Hi
yes, checked the Af and M on the camera and on the lens, all ok. I thought about the contacts, and might take it back to the shop. Thank for the advice.

Another thought, could the menu setting for functioning of the AE/L button been changed to function as the focus button?

I knew I'd joined the forum for a reason. Yes, you are very correct. The button at the back was acting as the focus button!!!

Not sure why, but you'd of thought that if I was re setting the camera, it would have re set that too!!


Anyway, many thanks for your help, very much appreciated.

Hi, if you meant the AF-ON button for focusing, I actually set it on purpose. I found it more convenient.
