The issue I have had is where the camera tries to focus and cannot focus. It just zooms in and out constantly and no matter what I do it will not focus and fire. The only way I have found around this issue is to a) switch to manual focus and shoot or b) zoom in an out some and give it a minute then it will work.
I do not know if this is an hardware issue or an user issue. I have preformed a master reset but have yet tried to do much shooting with it to see if the issue happens again. Also the camera has the latest firmware available according to Nikon's website.
Have others seen/heard of this issue before? What can I do to remedy this if it happens? I read where another person had this same issue but nothing was listed as to how it was resolved. Nikon has nothing on their website I can find. Thoughts? Ideas? Could it be simple user error on my part?
Here is the equipment I am using:
- Nikon D5100
- Transcend Class 10 16GB memory cards (2 of them)
- Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 (standard kit lens)
- Nikkor 55-200mm f/4.5-5.6
