My focus will not work on my tamron aspherical 18-200mm


Hi Missy - certain Nikon bodies lack the built in auto focus motor as a way to hold costs down and make them affordable. The problem is that any lens purchased for these bodies will need to include the motor - and adds the expense to the lens. Instead of paying for the motor once in the body, the owner will need to buy it in every lens purchased for that body. As of this writing, the Nikon bodies that lack an AF motor are: D5100, D5000, D3100, D3000, D60, D40X, D40.

When selecting a lens for one of the cameras listed above, you must choose the model for a Nikon that needs the AF motor built into the lens. Tamron sells lenses for these camera bodies and states they have "BIM" or "built in AF motor" and similar. In any case, regardless of lens manufacturer, you must purchases lenses that have the AF motor built into the lens, otherwise it will not be able to auto focus. Here is a site with a list of all lenses known to to have the AF motor built into the lens.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Tamron 14mm 2.8 does not work on d90


This lens is compatible with your Nikon D90 according to this site:

http://lenshero.com/lens/Tamron-14mm-f2.8-IF-Nikon-f-lens

Your complaint "does not work" is rather broad, so I don't know what specific kind of problem(s) your having with it.

If you continue to have issues with it, make sure other lenses work on your D90 to eliminate the body as the source of the problem. Consider performing a 2 button reset on the D90 (and resetting any other customized settings to defaults) and try again. If it still "doesn't work" then contact Tamron to evaluate the lens for possible repair.

Good luck!

Is tamron af 35-90 compatible with nikon d200?


Tamron makes lenses with a variety of mounts. Assuming the lens has a Nikon mount, then it is fully compatible with the D200.

I have dust particles inside my Tamron 17-55 LD XR DiII SP Nikon mount lens. Is there an easy way to remove them?


No. There is no easy way to remove them, to do so requires an expensive strip down and overhaul in a clean dust-free environment.

Unless you have the dust equivalent of boulders in there, then they are highly unlikely to show on your images and you can ignore them. Even if they do show occasionally you can usually easily correct the faults using commonly available processing software.

I have a Nikon d3000 and a Tamron AF 55-200mm lens. I cant get the lens to autofocus with my nikon


The Nikon D3000 does not have a focusing motor built-in, relying on the lens to have a motor. The Tamron AF 55-200mm does not have the necessary motor; it only auto-focuses with Nikon cameras that have the motor in the camera body.

For Nikon lenses, you need lenses designated AF-S. For Tamron, you need lenses designated USD and/or BIM.

That probably wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

Tamron 28-300mm Model 185D Auto Zoom on Nikon d40


Autofocus function on the D40 only supports lenses with the
AF-S feature, which have an autofocus motor built into the lens,
instead of using an autofocus motor drive built into the camera.

The Tamron lens you have, does not have a built in motor and
the autofocus function relies on the motor drive in the camera.

It will not work with the D40 or D60, but it will work with other
Nikon digital SLRs, such as the D80. Need to get an AF-S
type lens or upgrade to different Nikon digital SLR. Unless
you do this, you will have to manually focus the Tamron lens.

All of the Nikon DX (for digital) series lenses are also AF-S
type, so they will work with the D40, which is designed as
an entry level digital SLR, therefore it is intended primarily
for use with DX lenses, which are typically sold in a kit with
the D40. Most common one is Nikkor 18-55mm DX AF-S.

Other Nikon AF-S lenses made for film cameras (FX type)
will also work with the D40, but these tend to be expensive
professional models. DX series lenses tend to be more
affordable. You might consider the 18-200mm DX AF-S
as an alternative to the Tamron, but these are not cheap.
