Is the Tamron AF08N700 auto focus with the D90?


Good morning. You have likely already gotten an answer to this, but yes, it will.

Unlike less expensive models such as the D40, D60, D3000 and D5000, the D90 has a built in autofocus motor, which means that all Nikon F-mount autofocus-lenses (except two for the rare Nikon F3AF) can be used in autofocus mode for all newer generation autofocus lenses like the Tamron 200-800. However, you may want to look around a bit, as Tamron has come out with a new 150-600 lens that is simply terrific (I know, I own one) and the Big Sig from Sigma is equally great.

FYI

Good luck.

My sigma 24-70mm f2.8 doesnot work on my d7000


Could you be a little more specific about "does not work"? Does the lens not fit? Can you not view through the lens when it's attached? Does it not autofocus? Does it not meter the exposure properly?

I have a nikon d60... is the tamron 70-300 zoom lens compatible ?


Tamron makes their lenses with a variety of mounts. A lens with a Canon mount, for example, will not fit a Nikon. Assuming the lens has a Nikon mount then yes, it is compatible with the D60. However, the D60 lacks an autofocus motor, relying on the lens to have one. Some Tamron lenses have such a motor, some do not. Such lenses will not autofocus with the D60, but everything else still works, including manual focus.

Sigma AF Zoom 70-210mm F4-5.6 Nikon Mount Camera Lens. is compatible with the nikon d60?? this is the Serial #1172609


Yes, the lens is compatible with the D60, with one proviso. The D60 lacks an autofocus motor, relying on the lens to have one. This lens does not, so the autofocus feature will not work. Other than that, everything else will work.

Was told by amazon that your 50mmF2.8 DG macro would autofocus on my nikon d40x...it does not...am I missing something or did amazon mislead me? Thanks Kevin


FixYa does not make lenses. From the name, I'm going to assume it's a Sigma lens.

The Nikon D40x does not have an autofocus motor, relying on the lens to have one. This particular Sigma lens does not have such a motor. Sigma designates their lenses with an autofocus motor as "HSM", Nikon calls theirs "AF-S".

I saw nothing on Amazon's page for this lens specifically mentioning the D40x. If someone there told you that it will autofocus on the D40x, then yes, you were misled.

Using a Nikon D40 digital slr with a AF-S DX Nikkor 18-200 1:3.5-5.6 G ED lens I was previously able to autofocus bun now am not. Can you suggest reasons why this may be?


Please check if the Autofocus-switch on your lens is set to M/A. Also check if the Autofocus on your camera is switched on. For detailed information about your cameras autofocus, please check this site: http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/d40/af-settings.htm

Automatic focus not working


The D40x only autofocuses with the latest AF-S (and old professional AF-I) lenses. Most traditional (screw-type) AF lenses from 1986 through today will not autofocus on the D40x. If your lens says "AF-S," you're fine.
Most lenses sold today for the D40x are AF-S, and so is the included 18-55mm kit lens. Many non-Nikon lenses from Tamron, Tokina, Quantaray, Sigma and anyone other than Nikon still won't autofocus on the D40x. Try before you buy, but honestly, there isn't much the included 18-55mm lens won't do.
Autofocus systems are fast, but not usually instantaneous. You have to hold the shutter down halfway as you compose the first shot so the AF system can focus and lock, and then the camera fires instantaneously when you press the shutter the rest of the way. See Preventing Shutter Delay for more.

Won't take pictures when set to A on the lense.


if you're using D40/X, make sure that the attached lens has built-in autofocus motor (e.g. code AF-S for Nikon, HSM for Sigma), because the camera does not have built-in autofocus motor in the body so only manual mode will work in most AF lenses..

if you're lens is already one with built-in autofocus motor, you might need to check the motor at a service center
