D300 won't focus? Try this!

When I got my D300 it wouldn't focus on anything - both lenses I tried just kept racking all the way in and out. I tried taking the battery out, switching to MF and back again, to no avail. Then for some reason I decided to try LV mode (which sort of worked) and when I switched back to AF, voila, it focused as it should and has been excellent ever since (LV works too but is a bit "clunky" in it's implementation IMO). I spoke to a local camera store clerk and she said they'd had 3 D300s that exhibited this behavior and were going to send them back to Nikon. I haven't heard yet whether the LV-AF trick worked on those bodies.

Hope this is of some use!
Scott
