Re: The lens does not overexpose a photo, you do

I wonder if the blades are stuck? Did it oversexpose wide open also? Did you try spot metering and/or exposure compensation? Im just really curious as I have one on preorder for Nikon and I still have 2 months to wait I've seen a few people with AF issues. I think when the 70-300 VC first came out I remember seeing a few threads about the same exposure issues... maybe its just built in ETTR

where did you read about the AF issues? my 70-300 had an underexposure issue.

There are a few on POTN, that seem to have a problem with the lens not wanting to refocus in certain modes on certain Canons...  I wouldn't expect Nikon to have the same issues.  I've always thought that 3rd party lenses play nicer with Nikons for some reason...
