Question about Tamron 75-300mm f/4.0-5.6 LD Lens for Minolta Maxxum
Lens worked for first few months, other lenses still work fine on my camera (Konica-Minotla 7D) body. The 70-300 when attached produces a short-lived moderate pitched tone, none of LEDs light up, auto focus doesn't work ... any ideas or is it time for a wake to be scheduled? I'm visiting in Brisbane for a few days, would like to have it fixed before continuing my journey ... any ideas would be appreciated; recommendations for reliable repair shops, etc. Best E-Mail for me: email@example.com. If you hit reply, my friend in town will also let me know if comments are sent. Thanks a lot, Carla

This is a lens for Sony/Minolta cameras. It is not compatible with the Nikon D90. Hence a Teleconverter for Nikon will not work on this lens to mount it to a Nikon D90.

Try gently cleaning the electronic contacts on the lens's mount with an eraser. This will remove any mild oxidation on the contacts. If this doesn't resolve the problem, then contact Tamron and ask if there are any issues using this particular lens with a Canon 40D.

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: Was I sold a 'pup'?
Excerpted from a www.photo.net review of the lens:
Though the Tamron AF 55-200mm Di II LD Macro has "Macro" in its name, it's not really a macro lens. Maximum magnification is about 1/3 life size (Tamron spec it at 1:3.5) as you can see from the following image below, which was shot at 200mm and at the closest focus distance (0.9m/37.4"). This isn't too bad, but it's more of a close focus telephoto lens than a "macro" lens (bolding for emphasis added).
