Aperture lever sticking on D600
4 months ago

Went out shooting today and noticed at a certain point that all my pictures were heavily overexposed and the dof was wrong... So I pressed the dof preview button and saw that the aperture was not closing at all... it remained wide open in fact. So I took off the lens and checked the aperture lever on the camera... it was fine (not bent) but it would not move when shooting or using the dof preview button. So I gently wiggled it a bit with my fingers and it started working one out of three times. I kept pushing the dof preview button and it started working half of the time... kept pushing the button till it finally started working everytime... I then took my rocket blower and blew some air in the lever's slot, just in case there was some foreign stuff inside. Nothing came out. I then reattached the lens and checked: everything worked normally and is still working normally. Has this ever happened to you?
