If you're using just the pop-up flash, you should NOT be setting it to 'iTTL' (that implies you are actually in 'Commander' mode for the wireless flash system which is not applicable..
Select function e3 as TTL, camera to P or A, and re-read page 172+ in the manual. It's simpler than you're making it out to be..
Not sure how the heck you're getting -5 compensation out of the system...
Check your lens contacts maybe. If something is screwed up in the connection you can get those ERR messages. Can you try a different lens? Maybe the lens is malfunctioning internally..

Aahaa ! There you go... sounds like a reasonalbe explanation. I will check this out when I get home and re-read the pagaes you takled about..
Regarding the exposure problem, I'll take a closer look and try to describe a bit better.
Thanks for your helprookie..
I really hope it's not a lens problem since I have several and non of them changed anything. I will try to get hold of someone who already has a camera working properly.
It's probably just a 'user education' issue..
When you get home and have the camera in hand, post again w/ updated info..
It's complex and you probably just have a setting incorrect...
Not sure if you got my answer, I cant see the message. Anyways, I went home and spent a couple of hours with the camera and you are absolutly correct. I also tried this with my SB-600 and understand better now. Thank you, this was extremly valuable for me..
You're better than the Nikon guys here in Paris who said the camera was fcked.... (but then again, they are French ofcourse).
If you want to,pls feel free to help me out with my other problem, I sent it under a new subject. P mode problem.....rookie..
