Green tint using a AF28-75mm F/2.8 XR Di LD Aspherical (IF

Hi, am using a borrowed AF28-75mm F/2.8 XR Di LD Aspherical (IF on my Nikon D70 , shot side by side comparos (outdoors)with my Nikon 70-210. The Tamron needed corrections to get rid of a "green tint" Is this normal in any circumstance known? Outside of that I like the lens. Thanks, Alan

    Randy,
    Thanks for the suggestion. There were no filters on either lens. My original test was done for sharpness and detail. The Nikon 70-210 is a 4D the camera was set to auto WB for both and the Tamron was way off, but not the Nikon.
    I have since re run the test setting the WB individually for each lens using the 70-mm feature against a white paper. Both F-stops were the same as was the focal lengths=70-mm. Now they look almost identical, in color, detail, sharpness, and exposure.
    What thru me was how different the Tamron responded to auto WB. Lesson learned, non Nikon lenses might not function as Nikon lenses do.
    Thanks again for the response.

Alan, Does one of the lenses have a solar or polarized filter on it?  It sounds basic but it would alter the type of light brought into the camera, that is a nice lens.  Are you shooting the smae F-stop for both side by side photos?  The 70-210 is a 3.5 or 5.6 right? Just a thought. randy320sgi

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.

Hello!
From what you described, there are several issues, no problem with the camera itself, but just settings to adjust:
- grain effect - it's because you have high ISO and low light
- yellowish tint - because of the ambient light
- shadowy subjects: again because of low light, the camera cannot properly focus the subjects correctly.

To fix these issues you basically need more light. And the only way you can obtain it, not being in a studio is to fire up the flash.

Please also provide some exif information from a photo if more assistence is needed.

28-200mm F/3.8-5.6 LD Aspherical autofocus does this lens fit Canon 40 d?


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!

Your question is posted under a Nikon version of this lens. I assume you are talking about using the Canon EOS mount version.
