Nikon d850. Attempting to auto focus fine tune my lenses. It worked fine for my first lens (28-300) but when I try to do my 16-35, or 28-70 using the same process a message comes back that auto focus fine tune cannot work with the present focus settings. I have tried turning auto focus fine tuning off then back on but get the same results with two other lenses. I'm frustrated.

Technician's Assistant: Has there been any damage to your camera recently (e.g. from dropping or from dirt getting in the lens)?

No damage. the camera is one week old and works perfectly.

Technician's Assistant: What kind of battery does your camera use? Have you tried taking out the battery and replacing it?

I'll do that. Stndard Nikon en-el15

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

Changed the battery. Same result

Have you tried cleaning the lens contacts?
