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.

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!

You can order the Tamron 2x teleconverter here. Be aware that not all lenses are compatible with teleconverters, and you can actually damage some lenses by trying to use them with a teleconverter.

I own a Tamron SP 80-210 adaptall II len with Pentax mount. I currently own a Nikon 7000. Can I use the Tamron with the Nikon by adding a adaptor? Any suggested adaptor I should be using? Thanks


Hi, The focal distance on Pentax camera's is different then the focal distance on Nikon's so because of that Pentax lens' can't be adapted to work on a Nikon camera. I'd suggest finding a similar lens with a Nikon mount as cross brand mounting is quite difficult.

Is the nikorF AF 35 to 105mm Lens compatible to Nikon D7000? How about tamron 70 to 210mm with 52 adaptor?


The Nikkor lens is fully compatible. The Tamron is dependent on the mounting. Tamron makes lenses for a variety of cameras. A lens with a Canon mount, for example, will not fit onto a Nikon camera. If the lens has a Nikon mount, there should be no problem using it with the D7000.

Remember that the D7000's sensor is smaller than a frame of 35mm film. This will cause the lenses to produce a field of view that is smaller than on a 35mm camera. The 35-105mm, for example, will give a field of view similar to what a 53-160mm would produce on a film camera.

Will Tamron 80-210mm f/4.5-5.6 Lens autofocus with my Nikon D3100


No. This lens does not have an internal motor which the D3100 requires for autofocusing.

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.

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.
