I asked the question a while back about my D7100 not able to scroll after zooming in except by constant tapping the arrows. After doing a Google on it, I find out that several Sigma lens are causing the problem. My 17-70 2.8-4.0 macro stabilized lens is the culprit. If I turn off a/f and IS on the lens, the camera scrolls as it should. You can also wait 40 seconds or so and after a "clunk" it works also. Would like to see if Sigma has an answer for that. I really like that lens. Of course Nikon could care less.

I am not sure why you say "Nikon could care less". Do you mean you blame Nikon for the fact that your Sigma does not work properly on it? Or do you mean Nikon could not help you fix the problem your Sigma lens was causing? Or do you mean Nikon blew you off when you contacted them about the Sigma lens that did not work properly on their camera? I leave you with another quote, "you get what you pay for".

I didn't mean to offend anyone by that statement, it's a Sigma problem not Nikon. Why would they design a camera to match someone's glass?
By the same token, just because it says Nikon doesn't mean it's the best thing out there. ( ask D600 users) My last two primes have been Nikon, my next glass will be Nikon, but that Sigma has served me well on two other bodies. I tend to be a little facetious at times, just the way I am, so I apologize for that. I haven't contacted Nikon, not their problem.

I'm sure this is what was being expressed, and not deserving of those that try hard to read something into the comment that's not there.

I still think it was funny, I'm here to learn and enjoy. Good humor is a plus.
