300/2.8 VR II ERR message on D3/x/s bodies? Not on D810/D300.

Hey everyone!

I have some issues with my 300/2.8 VR II lens. It might most likely be the lens that need service but it's still a bit strange:

Every time I press the DOF button on my D3, D3x or D3s i get that annoying ERR message (with this lens only), I've cleaned the contacts.. nothing works..

BUT, here is the strange part: on my D810 and D300 I do NOT get any ERR message while pressing DOF button(!). Whats that about?

Very annoying, the problem only shows up on the D3 series bodies. Anyone been in the same boat?

It's just strange that there are no ERR message at all on the D810 and the D300.. while on the D3, D3x, D3s there is. Gives me a major headache.. I love this lens..
