Hi,

I find that whenever I press the depth of field preview button it performs the depth of field preview function and the AE-L icon is displayed in the viewfinder. I have confirmed that the depth of field button is assigned the DOF function and that DOF+Dial is none. If I assign AE-L to the DOF button then I lose the DOF functionality and the AE-L icon is displayed in the viewfinder. Assign DOF to the DOF button again and I get the DOF functionality back but the AE-L icon is still displayed in the viewfinder.

Would someone else with a D700 please try this and let me know what happens.

Thank you.

Other than this I am very impressed. Still trying my various lenses but so far only my Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 Di XR seems soft wide open. My manual focus lenses are producing sharp images and my AF 80-200 f/2.8 is superb (as always).

Enjoy!

Randy
