Thanks, yes, that's the rub. Some are saying it will work with my D7200 just fine and some say the focus will "time out". And there is some question about the VR functionality, with some saying I won't be able to turn off the VR in the D7200, but there is a three position switch on the lens, and I don't know if they are saying that my D7200 will render that switch inactive until the software is updated.

Others say there is a software update for the D7200 to make it compatible, but I don't know how to go about getting it.

If you have the latest firmware from Nikon (available on their website, easy install from SD card) then your D7200 and the 70-300 AF-P FX will work 100%, I use this exact combo almost every day. The lens VR switch works as it should, there is no 'camera override' and the focus timeout was fixed in the camera firmware update.

Thanks much,

I found out that my 7200 has the latest firmware, 1.04.
