Even in brightly lighted conditions I have a flashing question mark. Pressing the ? button displays "Lighting is poor; flash recommended". My lenses are all AF-S fully compatible. If I point the camera at the sun, then the flashing question mark stops. I've reset all meneus to factory defaults.

Nikon tech support wants me to send them the camera for service, but they aren't able to confirm whether this is operating as designed. Can some of you with the D5100 confirm whether you too get this message -as I have no desire to part with my camera if the next one I get has the same issue...

Thanks,
Bill
