Question about Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 XR Lens for Minolta Maxxum

2 Answers

Minolta 7000 Maxxum

I have an old Minolta 7000 for which I purchased a Tamron 28 - 300 Aspherical LD lens. I bought the lens about 10 years ago (I think). My question is this: can this lens be adapted to a new digital SLR?

    Thanks, Robert

    I'll do just that. By the way, is the Maxxum 7000 worth hanging onto? It's actually in beautiful condition and has a Quantaray QTB-7500A flash. I still intend to get a DSLR.

    John, thanks for the information - it was very helpful. This lens set me back an arm and a leg so I'm grateful it can be saved. I will most definitely look into buying a Sony DSLR.

The Minolta Maxxum 7000 uses a Minolta A mount, which is also used on the Sony Alpha series, as they bought out Minolta's technology. All Maxxum lenses should work for the most part on the Sony Alpha series of DSLR's, including the autofocus.

You need to know the mm of the lens fitting.... and the mm of the camera fitting where the lens attaches... usually you can buy adaptors to mount different lens.

a good camera store should be able to assist you on that... even better ones will have the adaptors.

    worth hanging onto is a subjective question (if that is the correct word). if it still takes great pictures of what you want... keep it

Is a tamron 28-300 F/3..5-6.3 AFC adaptable to my canon T3I?


Tamron makes their lenses with a variety of camera mounts. If the lens has a Canon mount then it will work fine on your T3i. If it has another mount then it will need an adapter, and you will lose some functionality (probably autofocus and autoexposure).

Auto focus stopped working


Try cleaning the contacts on the camera and the lens, this is what usually prevents AF from working correctly.

Tamron makes their lenses available with a variety of mounts. A lens with a Canon mount will fit Canon cameras but not Nikon cameras. A lens with a Nikon mount will fit Nikon cameras but not Canon cameras. As long as you buy a lens with a Canon mount, you shouldn't have any problems.

I need a manual for Tamron Camera Lens 28-200/3.8-5.6


You didn't supply what kind of Tamron lens it is. I'm gonna go ahead and give it my best shot on a guess: Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di LD Aspherical (IF).
If I'm correct, you can download the manual here: http://www.tamron.com/assets/pdfs/A09.pdf
Hope this helps!

Tamron 28-200 AF Aspherical LD. Does it have manual focus? If yes, where?


There should be a switch just in front of the back of the lens marked "AF" and "M". Set it to M for manual focus, AF for autofocus.
