I am having a bit of a problem with my D3s where it will stop auto focusing all of a sudden, turning the camera off and on does not fix the problem, it only starts working again if I remove the battery for a second. This is pretty annoying especially when you are at a wedding and every second count.

The lens I use on my D3s is my 70-200 VR
It happens about once every shoot.... so about once in a 2 - 5 hour period.
I dont usually use any other lenses on my D3s so its hard to tell if its the lens or the camera ?

Anybody have a problem like this with their D3s ???
