Just like ladylaine, above, I had this same problem suddenly today. After fiddling with all the settings and just about assuming I'd have to send it in for service, I found this page, read her suggestion, and turned my lens all the way counterclockwise. Sure enough, a tiny click and now it's working fine. It just had become slightly unseated somehow.

Hi taylorrm, I don't know if you have a solution to this but sometimes the AE-L/AF-L but gets pushed which is the auto focus lock button then the shutter release button cannot be used to focus and yu have to reset by pressing it again. Even though it's confusing at first it's a feature along with the AE/AF Lock to try out to lock your focal area on a subject prior to shooting.
To sbhoward5, check to make sure the switch on the camera body is switched to AF instead of M mode(looking at the front it's on the lower right hand side below the lens release button), which sometimes happens when changing the lens - so then the mode selected is in P,S,A, or M modes on the mode dial. happy shooting,

The F-- error means that the camera does not think that you have a later AF type lens attached.
If you are using the 18-135mm then the camera is not properly connecting to the lens.
To test this, press the lens release button on the camera and slightly turn the lens as if you are going to release it then turn it back to lock.
This may fix the problem.
If not you can try remounting the lens a few times and if that doesn't work you could clean the lens contacts.
The contacts are the metal studs on the back end of the lens, the bit that goes into the camera.
Sorry if that is too obvious.
If you have an early lens it must be set to the smallest aperture using the ring around the lens.
This will be 22 or 32.
Then lock it using the little lock near the ring.
