"RE: URGENT! D300 Fails to Fire"

I have actually seen this problem with a couple of lenses on the D300. It has happened with the 70-200VR1 and the 200-400VR1. I live and shoot in place that is always hot, so I don’t think temperature is the issue. On my D300 there is a little bit of play between the camera body and the lens and remounting the lens seems to fix it. The play might be the issue but I tend to agree that it is more likely the contacts. And, despite what I just said above, this could be caused by the heat and humidity because remounting (an actions which brushes the contacts over themselves) seems to fix the problem.

I don’t think it is the lens itself because the problem has not happened on the D3s which seems much tighter in the mounting than my particular version of the D300.

Regards,

Stephen
