I have the exact same problem. My D5000 however, according to the Nikon website is affected by the glitch where the camera won't turn on. Having said that, It works fine with my Nikkor and Tamron lenses. I have contacted Nikon tech support but yet to get a reply. I was offered a refund from the retail outlet where I bought it, and advised to buy a Nikon 60mm AF-S macro lens instead (this has auto focus).
Does this now mean that I can never buy a lens cheaper online without trying it first?
I'd like to know what chipping needs to be done to the Sigma lens too.
