I went to the car boot, opened the camera bag and to my horror the body of the lens was lying loose whilst the lens mount remained attached to the D3. The four tiny screws in the mount had all come out of their sockets. There was a black metal prong still attached to the mount sticking out and the electrical connection wire from the contacts to the autofocus was severed. I can only think that the recent cold weather (-6) had contracted the metal screws and they had lost their thread contact with the socket. Not sure if the socket is plastic cos I boxed the lens and posted it to Nikon straight away. Hopefully it will be replaced as it was less than a year old. Anyone else ever had the cold affect their kit in this way?
