    I just put the standard 18-55mm lens back on my d300 after using my 300mm
    zoom all
    day and I keep getting a err99. Camera will not operate. Put the 300mm back
    on, works just fine. The code in the manual states that a err99 is an error
    other than listed, reinstall battery. I know the lens must be the issue.
    please any info would help.
    Thanks

    Error 99 is often caused by bad electrical contact between the body and
    the lens. It sounds like your 18-55 may have got some dirt on the contacts
    - clean them carefully and try again.
