Wont AF on a D40 as the D40 uses "in lens" focus motors. The 185D is a camera body AF drive lens. You need a DX type lens that has an AF motor in the lens for a entry level D40. Sorry.

Is the Tamron AF08N700 auto focus with the D90?


Good morning. You have likely already gotten an answer to this, but yes, it will.

Unlike less expensive models such as the D40, D60, D3000 and D5000, the D90 has a built in autofocus motor, which means that all Nikon F-mount autofocus-lenses (except two for the rare Nikon F3AF) can be used in autofocus mode for all newer generation autofocus lenses like the Tamron 200-800. However, you may want to look around a bit, as Tamron has come out with a new 150-600 lens that is simply terrific (I know, I own one) and the Big Sig from Sigma is equally great.

FYI

Good luck.

I have a nikon d60... is the tamron 70-300 zoom lens compatible ?


Tamron makes their lenses with a variety of mounts. A lens with a Canon mount, for example, will not fit a Nikon. Assuming the lens has a Nikon mount then yes, it is compatible with the D60. However, the D60 lacks an autofocus motor, relying on the lens to have one. Some Tamron lenses have such a motor, some do not. Such lenses will not autofocus with the D60, but everything else still works, including manual focus.

How about a Sigma DL ZOOM auto focus 75-300mm 1:4-5.6 lens onto a Nikon D-40?


That particular lens should work on the D40 if it is made for the Nikon mount.
If not, you'd need an adapter to fit it to the Nikon mount. (i.e. if it is a Canon-type lens, you'd need a Canon-to-Nikon lens mount adapter).
You'd probably have fair luck selling it on eBay and buying the right kind of lens for your Nikon.

D40 with a Nikon AF-5 DX 55-200 lens will not auto focus.. The 18-55 does auto focus OK...


I had a similar problem with one that I bought. and come to find out, the gears internally in the lens where broken. I would return the lens, and get another one. Also when you go to buy a lens for your camera make sure that you bring the camera with you to test the zoom before you buy it.
Just FYI you also need to remember that with a smaller zoom your focus time will be slower, and it will take getting use to, unlike the larger zooms, you are trying to focus on a large area but being very detailed at the same time.

D40 Autofocus problem


The auto focus on modern cameras is pretty intense, I would recommend taking it in for repair.

I have a Nikon D40, which I recently dropped. :( Camera seemed okay, but then I noticed later that the 18-55 lens was being less than cooperative. It now is stuck on 55 adn will not zoom out. It still...


It sound like the lens zoom has broken.
If other lens is ok and this lens still focuses automatically the conection is working.

Sorry to bring the bad news but it may cost less to get a new lens than to get it fixed.

Someone else might have an idea how to fix the zoom, good luck.

Fitting a Sigma Lenset to Nikon D40


You have to make sure you bought the sigma lens with a NIKON mount. Sigma makes a Sigma mount as well as a Canon mount, of course neither of those mounts will work with your camera. Also you must also make sure your lens is the Sigma 70-300 HSM (/Hyper Sonic Motor) or it will not AF on the D40. I just bought this lens from Abes of Maine and I love it on my D40.
