Tamron 70-300mm lense

After attaching a Tameron AF 70-300mm LD lense to a Nikon D80 I get an error message saying no lense attached. I've had the lense for over a year and has previously worked fine. Can anyone help ?

Make sure the aperture ring is set to the minimum f-stop number, ie f22,f32. It is usually colour coded orange

Tamron 200-500 mm f5-6.3 "lens not attached"


This lens lacks the electronics to communicate with the camera. You need to set the aperture to its smallest setting (as you've done) and switch to the manual exposure mode (turn the mode dial to M). You'll get no exposure assistance from the camera's light meter. You can use a separate light meter and/or adjust the exposure by reviewing your pictures.

What nikon camera will this mount to


Tamron is a third party lens manufacturer and make lenses to fit all popular makes of cameras both film and digital. I'm sure the top two would be Canon and Nikon. So if the lens you have there is a Nikon Mount it will fit Nikon Auto Focus cameras both film and digital

Can i use a Quantray AF LD 70-300 mm lens with my nikon d80? Thanks.


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.

Tamron 28-300mm Model 185D Auto Zoom on Nikon d40


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.
