Well I fired up my D80 this morning and all I got was an ERR message, I think the contacts from the camera to the lens needs cleaning so this is my job when I finish in the morning. (In hindsight I should have brought it into work).
Yes it was, well I have cleaned the contacts and am still getting the same result. I have researched more and it could be the aperture switch thingamabob. Will have a better look on days off.
