Just wondering if any users of this or other AF-P lenses have this issue, or any idea what the cause might be. The problem is definitely the lens, as the problem occurs with both my D610 and D7100, and the VR on my other lenses work fine.
When the camera is first powered up, the autofocus engages perfectly - but the VR will not engage when the VR swtich is on (active or normal) and the shutter button is pressed halfway. After toggling the camera power on and off a few times, the VR engages as it should. This ONLY happens if the lens has not been used for several hours - after the VR system engages once, it works great unless I turn off the camera and don't use it for several hours. So even if I turn off the camera for an hour and come back, the VR still engages properly when I power up.
I have the latest firmware on both my cameras, and both are supposed to be compatible with the lens. I have tried turning the VR switch off when I power off, or leaving it on when I power off - no difference.
Anyone ever experience a problem like this? Any idea as to possible cause?
Thanks for any advice!!!
