It shouldn't really need lubricate... as far as cleaning ... just luke warm soapy water. do NOT use alcohol or such on the lens as that will destroy the coating on the lense

    I should add the obvious.... use a slightly damp cloth and a lint free paper towel or cloth to clean the camera.. don't put the whole camera in water to wash it.

Where I can buy replacement parts (rubber zooming ring) for Tamron 17-50/2.8 SP lense?


Try their website and call them. I had some problems with my 28-300mm and I need some parts to replace. I called the customer service an there a very sweet lady sent me the diagram of my lens with all the parts codes. After I identified the needed parts I ordered them by mail to that lady. She provided me the prices and I agreed. I paid with the credit card and the lady shipped the right parts to me. Good luck.

Drop my Nikon D100 camera with a Tamron AF 75-300mm LD lens...lens will not extend, stuck on 200mm. If is worth repair, or can I repair it myself?


First question "is it worth repairing" if it were mine I'd look to see what a new one is worth then divide that in half (cause that's what you might be able to buy a used one for) then figure about $120.00 for cleaning lubricating and adjusting the your lens. With your lens you know what you have, buying used might need the service. you are the one to decide. As for the second question "can I repair it myself" short answer no. If you have to ask if you can repair it then you don't have the necessary tools and general knowledge of how to dismantle and reassemble the lens (and have it work when finished). The lens took a hit and most likely set the inner and outer lens barrels out of alignment causing the inner barrel to slip out of its seal and or focusing gear and hang things up forcing it will break parts causing more repair costs. All else fails get an estimate before repair. Been there with a lens myself and after a couple a months without bit the bullet and had it repaired. Cheers best of luck

Tamron lens makes a clicking noise


It is dealing with the films. when closing the lens in the fabric, the electrical film changed its position to an unwanted situation. This makes noise sometimes. It is not important for functinality of the lens. But it only gives you an unwanted noise. There is nothing to do because film dries as the times passes. It needs to be changed but is not cheap. So it is better to go on to use it.

The Quantaray 70-300mm lens


Only if you get the version with the built-in autofocus motor. The D3000 lacks a mechanical AF coupling so AF lenses which need to be driven by a motor in the camera body will require manual focussing.

Either way, you're far better manually focussing the Quantaray/Tamron 70-300mm: the AF performance is very slow, very noisy and hunts around a lot to achieve focus.

Although the Quantaray and Tamron versions are identical lenses, if you have to buy this low-quality budget model then go for the Tamron: it's absolutely no better lens quality (and usually the same price), but the manufacturer's warranty from Tamron is much better than Ritz and is internationally valid. If you resell the lens then the Tamron will have some value (not much though) and the Quantaray will be near worthless as it's not so widely known, and has a poor reputation amongst those familiar with the brand.

"Cheap" isn't always the same as "good value"...

Auto focus not working


Sorry but if you've tried all the usual fixes then there's nothing more that you can do. Either pay for a professional repair or continue to use the lens manually.

A professional repairer should be able to indicate what the likely costs are going to be and you can then judge whether repairs are cost effective.

Personally, I'd stick to manual focus as I've always preferred knowing exactly what I'm focussing on instead of constantly fiddling with buttons and menus to override what the dumb camera has locked onto.

Lens will not auto focus wit my Nikon D40x


That lens doesn't have an internal focusing motor and thus will not autofocus with the D40x. Nothing is broken.

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.
