    I don't know these lenses but I wonder if you are manually opening the aperture with the lens aperture ring? It sounds like you are not doing this...

    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...
