In the manufacturer's? description of the lens on the Adorama site one is advised that "Shutter Lock must be disengaged on the camera's menu."Does anyone know what this means? Here is a response from Adorama to my query about this: "Based on information I was able to verify, it refers to some cameras having an issue when connecting to the lens. Causing the shutter to lock." B&H had no insight into the issue but assured me that their return policy protected me fully. Does anyone have a Nikon DSLR that has a shutter lock item in the menu or has anyone had experience with this lens? The optical package seems to exist in a wide variety of manifestations under various brand names so I would imagine any information or advice on the lens would be tentative, at best, but the "shutter lock" should be an easy one for those of you who have been through a large number of cameras.
I am in the market for a WA lens and this one seems to be front runner in the low price category. I would be using it on a D600 to fill out a 28-300, 55macro and 50 1.4 array. Tom
