Only occasionally a < arrow. My Tokina ATX PRO AF 11-16 F2.8 will show the white dot, and in AF-C the arrows will move left and right when I pan and will go to a white dot. However, I do not hear the camera focus motor hunt. So is the issue with the camera, or one or more of my lenses?
    Try putting the lens into Manual focus mode by moving the M/A button to the "M" position. Now try taking some shots. If you can shoot now, with the auto-focus in "M" mode, but not in "A" mode, that would lead me to believe the focus-motor in the lens is not working or there is some kind of communication problem between the lens and the camera body.

    In manual mode the shutter will trip on both lenses. In auto focus mode, I do not hear the focus motors on either lens.

    Hmmmm... Well, based on everything in this thread, I'd say your lens needs to be seen by a professional.

    Re: AF-S single point

    It sounds like its the 18-200 if that is the only lens showing the problem. Hard to say for sure from here. Make sure its mounted properly, twist it both directions without pushing the lens release button. I've seen a few people that were holding the lens release button as they mounted the lens and were twisting the lens past the click stop. It caused some odd behavior because the contacts were slightly misaligned. Other than that, it sound like you have a problem. I don't know the inside details of the focus system to say for sure what is wrong, but it certainly sounds like a real problem. You did say it works in auto. I think auto remembers some settings that you change, so you can push the focus mode button and see what mode is being used.
    I must have a really good camera.

    by my read of the posts, neither lens works right on AF

    two bad with the same problem would be very unusual

    Took the camera and lenses to a photography shop......and the lenses worked fine on their D7200. Camera body is the problem. Thanks for all of your insight and support!

    Re: AF-S single point

    I missed the post where you said two lenses didn't work. Try the two button reset like Texas mentioned. Also go through the menus and reset the shooting menu and custom settings menu as well. The two button reset does not clear everything. Good luck.

    Funny you should ask. I just sold a guitar that I bought 3 years ago to learn the guitar.......but never got there, and felt I never would! LOL

    That being said, I have a first cousin who is one of the original STYX rock band members. His brother was the drummer until he passed on. The two of them, and Dennis DeYoung were they original founders.
