D300s+Nikon AF 80-400 locking in f32 or f22
May 16, 2011

Yesterday i was out doing my normal Sunday football photos using the usual kit when I started having problems with some shots intermittently during the day.

Every now and then the camera would refuse to focus but still take the shot in one of the two previously mentioned f stops and then after a while it would take off as usual.

This is a first ever and I have never seen this problem using a D200 and the D300s is only a couple of months old.

Anyone with similar experience? I took the lens off and wiped the contacts but I'm unsure whether its the camera or the lens.
