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

I have a "Lens Not Attached" message when the AF-S Nikkor DX 18-55mm Lens to my Nikon D5000. Other lenses work fine and the lens appears to be attached correctly.


Apparently the lens is faulty. Or it may have dirty contacts.

Take the lens to a camera store and try it on one of their cameras. If you get the same error, the lens probably is faulty.

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.

Error message shows F -- with lens attached. Lens was cleaned with compressed air, now willnot work. Lens type Nikon 28-80 AF


Check to see that the lens aperture ring is set to the smallest (largest numerical) aperture setting (usually f22 or such). Nikon AF cameras have to have their lenses set at the smallest aperture for most of their program modes to work. Nikon AF lenses have a small slide or twist lock adjacent to the aperture ring to lock it in place at the smallest aperture. This may have been unlocked during the cleaning.
Another possibility is that the lens's electrical contacts were damaged during cleaning, so the body is not "seeing" the lens. Do you have another lens you could attach to the body to test this theory?

Camera will not take picture with nikkor 105mm lens


Check if the lens is properly mounted. If still you get the error message, clean the electrical contacts between the lens and the camera using an eraser. Take care not to let any dust fall into the body. Attach the lens and try.

Nikon D80 won't autofocu


I had this problem too and found that my lens wasn't firmly attached!

Check to see that your lens is firmly seated in the camera. Do this by holding the lens and twisting counterclockwise carefully. If you hear a click, you probably just fixed the problem!
