Question about Tamron 75-300mm f/4.0-5.6 LD Lens for Minolta Maxxum
Tamron 70 300 mm problem lenes makeing a jaming nosie when in af mode
That depends. If the Quantaray lens has a Nikon mount, then yes, no problem, it'll work on the D80. If it has a different mount, then it won't fit onto the D80.

Dust and other small debris is drawn into the lens due to the vacuum
created when zooming in. You can reduce the chances of drawing in dust
and debris by slowly zooming in as opposed to rapidly zooming in.
Now that you how it gets in and how to help prevent it from getting in again, comes the bad news. There's really no way to disassemble the lens to clean it up at home. These are precision optics with many small moving parts that really need to be serviced in a dust free environment. You best bet it to contact Tamron (or authorized servicer) to learn how much it will cost to be cleaned by them. This will keep the warranty (if any) intact, too.

What worked for me: on the lens where it contacts the camera there is a little strip with metal leads. Unscrew that and there is a spring underneath. Stretch out the spring gently. Replace and then replace the leads strip and put the lens back on the camera. I haven't had a problem since.
