Question about Tamron AF 28-200mm f/3.8-5.6 LD Aspherical Lens
My lens will work from 18mm to approx 25mm and then I get a Err99 on the camera throughout the zoom range to 200mm. I suspect a fault has occurred in what I presume is an electrical tape/connector that extends through the lens body as it zooms out. I'm wondering if this is a known problem and if a repair will be so expensive that I may be better off replacing the lens? Its an 18-200mm 1:3.5-6.3 Macro. Advice appreciated!

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.

Contact Tamron USA via their web site or a phone call to get a price quote for the front lens assembly. However, I would strongly suggest that instead you allow Tamron to repair your lens since more than likely the internal roller glides have been compressed due to the impact. This would allow the front lens group to wobble a bit while focusing and zooming, and this would seriously affect the image quality.

It's probable that although it's designated Macro, the lens actually only gets in fairly close. I recommend you buy a closeup filter which is a simple lens you screw on the front of your lens. You can different strengths for getting in closer. Otherwise treat yourself to a set of extension tubes which do the same thing but more effectively.
I hope that helps
