HI all, I was hoping that someone might be able to help me figure out why my flash is not syncing up properly with my 18-200 mm Nikkor lens. I have a SB 900 Nikon flash and sometimes it will sync up with my D7000 and my 18-200 mm Nikkor lens but most of the time it will not. I have always tried to make sure my D7000 is off (sometimes forget to turn off) when I attach my SB 900 flash. I also try to make sure the flash is off when I disconnect or connect it to the camera body. I will then start up my D7000 and then switch on my flash. First thing I will do is move the 18-200 mm lens in and out to see if the flash has connected or synced up to the lens. When the flash syncs properly the flash's internal lens will automatically adjust the focusing of the light (in or out) with the lens zoom range.
Is there anything I can do to correct this problem? I recently updated my D7000 firmware but that didn’t seem to help correct that issue… HELP
