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.

18-70 AF-S lens in D200 kit does not autofocus, especially when camera is held in vertical position....is camera reset an option to correct this, as is suggested for the 18-200 VR lens?


Make sure the camera is set to auto focus and your metering is correct
Make sure the lens is set to A and not M
Make sure your body (the little switch on the front) is set to A and not M
camera reset may help, but may not
to do this turn off the camera and hold the two buttons with the green dots on them and turn on the camera

I can't tell the diff between VR and VR OFF with my Nikon 18-200 lens. Is there a foolproof way to tell if VR is functional?


Charles, I can save you the effort. The D200 lacks the menu item I suggested and will not show any symbols in the viewfinder or LCD to indicate which VR setting you have the lens set to.

But Ken Rockwell's guide to the lens has a big clue: VR takes a moment to stabilise, so you ideally need to half press the shutter release and wait a second or so before firing the shutter.

I don't want to plagiarise his excellent article, so instead suggest that you click here to read what the man has to say himself. He discusses the benefits of your lenses VR early in the article, but you may want to skip right down the page to the heading, "How to use the VR".

Ken has also created an excellent alternative D200 users' guide, click here.

Good luck, and please take a moment to rate my reply.

Nikon af-s 18-70 dx autofocus problem


ff1esta,
Moving a camera from cold to warm after it has been in the cold for a long time will cause condensation to form. It's a good idea if you can to allow the camera and lenses to gradually warm up. Like first in a garage or enclosed porch in the bag before binging them into a warm place. Since you have the moisture in it now you have to allow it to get out, the electrical components are at risk, the condensation or fog may have caused the lens not to be able to focus. remove the lens from the camera body and let both sit to air out. Since it's been over a week now if there is still some moisture you may want to get the camera into a shop to be cleaned and inspected to avoid corrosion.

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.
