Re: 18-55 VRii kit lens doesn't work on a D300S ??

I think my next step would be to clean the contacts on both the lens and the camera body.

I've read in other threads of this fixing issues with lenses but don't remember if any of them specific to your body and lens.

I know the AF-P lenses had backwards compatibility issues but I've not heard before of any inherent AF-s problems like your describing simply for VR2 compatibility.

My money is dirty or worn contacts on the D300s body due to the lens working fine on your D5600

Look forward to your update.
