I've got a reconditioned D100 from Cameta Camera and it works great except for one small problem. When I shoot something bright with an apature smaller than the largest f-stop on my lens (2.8 ot 3.5) I get a blinking "Err" message on the control panel where the shutter speed is usualy displayed. It general shuts my camera down for about 10-15 seconds, however sometimes it takes a lot longer unless I restart the camera. An odd sidenote, when I shoot tiff files the "Err" will blink until the image is processed on the card. Most of the images come out extremely underexposed too. I think that about explains it. I just got my camera and I'm about to move so I really don't want to send it into nikon just yet. I hope someone out there has had this problem and fixed it or know what is going on.
Thanks for any help you can give.

By the way, is there anyone out there who hates Canon just for the fun of having a rival camera ... Nikon v Canon = Red Sox v Yankees
