Tamron 28-300mm lens

When my I tilt my Nikon d-80 forward, the Tamron 28-300mm lens slides open?! Or it falls to the fully extended position as the gravity increased by tilting it. I was told by the seller that they all are supposed to do that. Is this correct? and;When I asked the seller if this is supposed to happen, he said "they all do that" However, my Nikon DX 18-135mm lens does not slide. respectfully, d.r. whitehead II Additionally, if you will please; If in good used condition, is this worth $225? Tamron 28-300mm, w/ a filter and a hood/shroud or collar.

Re: Tamron 28-300mm lens

Many zoom lenses of this length, and even shorter have the problem whereby the lens either extends or retracts under its own weight depending on whether the camera is pointing up or down. I had a Canon 28-105mm lens with this problem. More expensive lenses have zoom locks to prevent this from happening. $225 sound like a good price to me!

My Tamron 28-300mm XR Di extends by itself when pointed downward. Can this be prevented and if so, how?

"I also purchased a Fotodiox Lens Mount Adapter, Tamron Adaptall II Lens to Nikon Camera. The Tamron lens still will not fit

What mount do you have on the Tamron lens? (The built-in mount.) If it has a Nikon mount, you don't need an adapter at all. If it has the Adaptall mount then the adapter should fit onto the back of the lens, then the combo should fit onto your Nikon camera. If the lens has a different mount then nothing you can do will make it fit.

Does the adapter fit onto the lens?

What's your pwill Tamron AF 1780 Lens 80mm - 210 work on a sony 200A dslrmmroblem?

you need a proper t2 adapter. when you remove the m42 adaptor on tair lens, you can attach the proper t2 to nikon adaptor on it. check my tair 300 photo. it has "t2 to m42" adapter on it. please be sure that find the correct adapter. i bought several adapters to find the correct one. one of them was different than t2 adapter but looking alike and sold as t2 by seller. it is hard to find the correct adapter. i guess there are variants of that standard(which is odd).

Wil the Tamron AF 80-210mm 1:4.5-5.6 fit on my Nikon D3000 and if so how does it perform?

Assuming the lens has a Nikon mount, it will fit on the D3000. Tamron makes their lenses with a variety of mounts, so that one with a Canon mount, for example, won't fit onto a Nikon body.

This lens lacks an autofocus motor so you'll have to focus manually. Other than that, it will work fine. It's not the sharpest lens available, but it's also not the most expensive.

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.

Lens jams when extending or retracting

This is either due to a cracked internal roller or a cracked/broken internal cam. The lens will have to be sent to Tamron for repair.
