I recently purchased the Nikon D5100 DLSR with the 50mm, 85mm and 18-200mm lenses. During a recent vacation to the Pacific Northwest the camera started producing black images and the camera is less than 60 days old. I called Nikon & then sent it in for repair where they replace the shutter mechanism and shutter blades. They returned it in just under 3 weeks and out of the box, again it worked fine for a while. Yesterday, I was out shooting some of the fall colors and after a few shots with the 50mm lens I switched over to the 18-200mm and it gave me 5 shots producing the intended images. After that, there were only black images again. Less than 90 days and now the camera will be sent back to Nikon the 2nd time. Can't say that I am pleased nor comfortable with the brand, this being my first Nikon purchase.
Does anyone have any ideas what might be causing this? Could it be just a lemon?
