I know that you are a Tamron lens dealer. And I was wondering if you could order a specific lens for me. I am looking to buy a Tamron 200-500mm f5-6.3 zoom lens for a Canon Digital SLR. I did not see this lens on your web site. And i was wondering if you could order it.

If deciding to import the lens - check the exchange rate for the 2 currencies, add in the postage and work out what Customs Duties will need to be paid before you just click on the buy now option. Compare these costs against the cost of a locally sourced item.

There are three things you have to consider when getting lenses for the D3200.
First, you already know that the lens has to have the Nikon F mount.
Second, in order to autofocus, the lens must have a focus motor since the D3200 doesn't have one itself. Sigma designates lenses with the focus motor as HSM. Tamron designates theirs as USD. Lenses that don't have the focus motor will still work with the D3200, you just have to focus manually.
Third, the lens must have the electronics to communicate with the camera in order for the exposure meter to work. Any Sigma or Tamron lenses designed for digital cameras will have the electronics. Older mechanical lenses, including those from Nikon, will still work with the D3200, but you must set the exposure manually, without any help from the camera's light meter.
No. The LA-DC58K only allows you to use the TC-DC58K teleconverter with your camera.
The Tamron 28-200mm lens is intended for use with SLR (single-lens reflex) cameras, not with point&shoot cameras. As far as I know, there aren't any adapters which will allow you to use an SLR lens with the G10.
A teleconverter is an add-on accessory that works with an existing lens. The 28-200 is a lens, which is intended to be used as-is. Using it on the G10 would basically require removing the built-in lens on the G10. As that lens can't be removed...
Well, that's a great lens and most definitely worth the cleaning/service. I don't know where in the world you are but fungus growing inside a lens is only heard of in high humidity environments and can happen fairly quickly. Are you sure this is a fungus on the inside and not just a clouded smear on the front element? If the lens is having a problem then the camera won't be to far behind. To answer your question more directly "what should I do" my suggestion is to send the lens to a authorized Tamron service/repair center/depot for cleaning. After which get a few of those little moisture absorbing packets and place them in with your photo gear to help reduce the moisture.
Depending on how new your Minolta SLR film camera was, the lens may or may not work on a Minolta Digital SLR. In many cases, a lens with the correct mount (in this case, a Minolta mount) can be used on the same brand of camera in the digital format.
One thing you should know is that DSLR sensors are, generally speaking, smaller than the size of a 35mm film negative. Long story short, that means that your lens will have a magnification factor on the DSLR. Usually, it is in the range of 150%, so a 70-300 lens from a film camera would cover 105 to 450 on a Digital SLR.
To be sure about the mount, you'll need to seek advice specific to Minoltas -- probably best to take your lens to a local camera shop and see for sure if it fits and what features will work (aperature, auto-focus, etc) and which won't work on the DSLR.
Contact Tamron USA via their web site or a phone call to get a price quote for the front lens assembly. However, I would strongly suggest that instead you allow Tamron to repair your lens since more than likely the internal roller glides have been compressed due to the impact. This would allow the front lens group to wobble a bit while focusing and zooming, and this would seriously affect the image quality.
The Minolta Maxxum 7000 uses a Minolta A mount, which is also used on the Sony Alpha series, as they bought out Minolta's technology. All Maxxum lenses should work for the most part on the Sony Alpha series of DSLR's, including the autofocus.
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.
