Summary of Thread

I want to thank everyone for their suggestions. Unfortunately at this point, I don't have a solution; but because of your input I believe I know the problem. It appears that the 16-35mm lens is the problem.

Here is a summary:
1. The 16-35 lens will auto focus 16-20mm, but will not auto focus 20-35.
2. Contacts cleaned.
3. Tried Release mode and it works fine full range 16-35.

4. At 20-35, it won't auto focus under any settings. I have tried single, continuous modes; AF-S, AF-C; aperture priority, program, manual, VR on/off. It is set to M/A on the lens; tried indoors, outdoors (I am in Vail now), high contrast.

I am going to call the store where I bought it this morning and see what they say.

The one thing I haven't tried yet is to put the lens on another camera. Since I am away from home, that will have to wait.
Thanks again,
