    Warranty Repair. I have a question.

    Before, I send my D500 for repair, I need to know if the center button of the AF/MF switch on the camera body turns. Mine does, and now the switch is sticking. I was trying to use Auto AF Fine Tune and found the issue.

    On a side note, my favorite Tamron lense has a problem as well. While manually focusing, the image was jumping like the lens is being moved. Never seen that before. So, I have all kinds of problems.

    Anyway, I wanted to properly describe the switch problem, and I don't want to include wrong information.
    Thanks

    On my D500 that little button does spin/turn.

    On the image jumping, is that just the AF-C (Or AF-A) still working ?

    I was trying to manually focus it in Live View while on a tripod. It was acting really odd. At first, I thought maybe the camera was moving, but my other lens didn't do that. As far as I know, the AF was working ok. I will have to go back and look at it.

    The other Tamron would try to focus each time I pressed the shutter button half way. With each press, the focus ring would move a little. This was a steady target with light on it, so it should find focus and stay there.

    I am so frustrated right now. I will see if they are doing the same thing on the D300. Maybe that will shed some light on what is happening.

    Thanks for letting me know about the center button. I couldn't remember if it was spinning before or not. The AF/MF switch is not acting right for sure. Sticks some when going from AF to MF.

    One of my VR lenses will occasionally do a dance and through the viewfinder it looks like the lens is bouncing around before it settles down.
    D750, D90, D100, Nikon 1 J5 and way too many lenses that come and go on the forbuy/sale forums. (Once owned: EL, F2AS, D50, D200, D300s, and D7100)

    Do I send the camera with a battery or no?

    Interesting. I am going to test it on my D300. Thanks

    No. You don't want to send the battery, cards, or strap. Make sure to keep the body cap on it. Does this happen in Live View? If so, can you record it with your cell phone? When you go through Nikon's web site and ask questions, they like to see what's happening before sending anything in. Since it's a Tamron lens, I'm not sure how they will respond. Be sure to check and see if it happens with any Nikon lenses.

    @hark
    Thanks.
    I am sending it in because the AF/MF switch is sticking.

    I am going to do some testing with the Tamron. It is probably the lens since my other lenses don't do that. It was given to me, so no big loss if it stops functioning. I just thought it was odd that it was acting like that while manually focusing.
