Question about Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens
Randomly my camera will not let me take a picture and in the display window flashes F--
It is really becoming a problem and I am quickly learning to hate my camera.
The lens ought to be fully functional in every mode. But if you are in a pinch then Manual it is 'til you can get it sorted or serviced if need be...in which case you'll need to swithch the AF Mode lever (under lens release button )from 'AF' to 'M'.
Have you cleaned the lens' electrical contacts? Examine but probably little need to clean the camera's electric contacts considering its' young age. Do you have access to another AF body on which you can test the lens and another AF lens to test the D80?
Please keep in mind that if the aperture is not set (locked) at its minimum, the error is a flashing fEE. When the body cannot communicate with the CPU in the lens, the error is F--, which means either the lens has no CPU or a bad electronic contact.

Rotate the lens slightly in the camera, and it should solve itself.

I have the same problem and realized if i turn my lense either way (it is pretty much locked but there seems to be a little giggle room) the f goes away
