If you're using a Nikon camera, you want to lock the aperture ring at its smallest setting (largest f/number). You can control the aperture from the camera body, the same way as on a lens without an aperture ring.

This has nothing to do with the focal length. You can shoot at any focal length from 28mm to 200mm.

Can Tamron 2 X converter C-AF 1 BBAR MC-7 mounted with Canon 100-400mm? Tks


As you can read in the Dpreview link the Tamron converter can work perfectly with the Canon cameras. Question is, will AF still work, because you have to multiply the aperture twice. So if your lens has f/1:5,6 that will become f/1:8. Most camera's can't auto focus anymore on F 8

Hi!! The autofocus on my Tamron 79-300 for my nikon d90 dosn't work anymore. Can I fix it?? Is there any solution? Thank you, Lise gagnon


As with almost all camera equipment and lenses I recommend that you do not, under any circumstances try to repair them yourself. Photographic equipment is very delicate and you could just make the problem worse.

The most comprehensive solution would be to contact Tamron itself and send it in for repair. If your product is under warranty you may only have to pay the shipping fees.

You can find Tamron's contact information here:

I hope this information was useful.

Please let me know when/if you get this problem solved.

Tamron teleconverter 2x AFs compatibility.


When using a TC, as the perceived focal length increases and the aperture falls off, AF struggles to work except in very bright light.

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!

Will not autofocus


Hey shutterbug72,
According to the manufacturer the first thing you should try is cleaning the lens contacts with an eraser. If that doesn't work you could try removing the battery and reinserting it to reset the camera. It seems to me that if there was a compatibility issue going on you should have seen that from the start. As far as what lens you should buy both Tamron and Canon make very good lenses, but with Canon lenses you shouldn't ever have compatibility issues. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
