1. Yes, it works fine on the D200.
2. No, but both are DX lenses (18-135 and 18-200).

To further expand, I shot identical pictures in ~5mm increments. Everything from 24mm to 58mm was perfect. 62mm suddenly was wildly overexposed on up to 70mm. It was not a gradual change.

Incidentally, Nikon has now had the lens twice and the camera once at Melville. I just received camera and lens back today. Preliminary test shots indicate problem was NOT fixed. Unbelievable!

Nikon should be ashamed of themselves.

Next is a trip to Melville. I guess $5000 just doesn't buy the camera/lens it used to. I am disgusted.

Because it is most apparent in high contrast situations (bright sunlight), I'll duplicate the original conditions and see if there is any change. I doubt it.

BTW, all profiles were reset to defaults, so there is nothing I did to make this happen.
