Re: Nikon 200-500 f/5.6E - Aperture Control Failure

I’ve just got my 200-500 mm lens back from our Nikon service point with a firmware upgrade.

I’ve done a quick lens test today. I appear to have the exact same problem as described here. It probably existed before the firmware upgrade already, I remember the „Err“ message appearing from time to time but couldn‘t find any fault in the images since I mostly used f/6.3 which led to a tiny bit of overexposure. After reading this thread I tried f/11 and indeed, the images are completely overexposed.

Back to service I guess,
