Question about Tamron AF 28-80mm Lens
I have been enjoying this lens for a couple of years now with my Canon Rebel XT. Last time I tried to used it however, no AF Point display will appear on camera and the autofocus does not work at all. I know it is not the camera because when I switched to another lens, everything functioned as expected. And yes, I did check the slide control on the lens if it is on AF and not MF.
Could be that the electrical contacts on the lens / body need gentle cleaning - try that.

Make sure the lens is set for the largest f number on the aperture ring. there may be a lock to prevent the ring from turning in the future. Locking the lens of the largest f number allow the camera to set the lens through the camera. This is normal on most of the newer cameras.
If the lens does not have a move-able aperture ring, then dismount and remount the lens, making sure the lens is completely mounted and locks into place, completely lining up the contacts inside. If this does not work The camera or lens may need servicing.

SOURCE: The auto focus does not
Hi, It wouldn't autofocus on the D5000 as the body doesn't have an auto focus motor in the body and since that lens is AF, not AF-S, it won't autofocus. It should autofocus on the D7000 though, how far away are you from the object you're trying to photograph?
