Hi there fellow D7k-ers

A bit of a puzzle: I can understand that the flash symbol in the viewfinder will blink when flash is needed; however, when the shutter speed is showing 1/200 (in P mode) and the aperture is open up to f3.5 (ISO 400) and I am pointing to a sun-lit window I can't understand why the camera is 'asking' for more light.

The flash shutter speed is set to 1/60 and the flash sync speed was 1/250 (AUTO FP).

Any help on this subject, which I know is so-oo basic, would be very much appreciated.

Best wishes
