Re: Did your lens focussing issue work itself out? If so, how?

I've had the same problem with my 200-400mm lens on my 800E and D4 and before that the D700. I have to clean the contacts and it solves the problem. However it is very intermittent and sometimes just corrects itself if I turn the camera off and then on. Very frustrating if it happens when you are shooting BIF. Took the lens on a recent trip to Alaska and shot hundreds of shots with no problem. Every time the problem happens I threaten to send it in to Nikon and then the problem resolves itself so I use it - until the next time,
