HELP: 70-200 VR loose mount w/ d300 +1.4x tele
Apr 14, 2011

I have read about how a lot of people are having problems with a loose mount between the 70-200 VR and several cameras (most specifically the d300). I have noticed this on my set up and it has never been a problem ... until I bought a TC-14e II. When I use this combo (70-200/1.4x/d300s), the loose mount causes the lens to not be able to focus. If I hold the lens to one extreme, then I am able to focus and meter with no problem. However if I twist it the other way, then I can no longer focus. You can see how this could be an issue as I don't want to have to hold the lens in a particular orientation to be able to focus.

I have cleaned out the contacts, but the issue is still there.

I was wondering if anyone has had similar problems. If so, will sending it to Nikon to replace the mount on the lens help? If that is the solution, does anyone know the cost of the replacement and the amount of time I would be without a lens?

Thanks!
