Question about Tamron 28-200mm f/3.8-5.6 Super II Macro Black for Canon

1 Answer

Will not autofocus

I have been using a Tamron 28-300mm lens with a Canon XTi. Thing have been working fine until the last time I used the camera. I can only take pics with manual.
Any suggestions or explanation?
Using Tamron 28-200 on Canon Xti for a year. Suddenly I get an error 99. Canon says lens isn't compatable with camera, Tamron says not true, I need a new lens mine is shot.....
At any rate, I have to buy a new one - should I go Tamron 28-200 again or Canon 28-200? LOVED the Tamron, just don't know how long it will last on the Canon?

Hey shutterbug72,
According to the manufacturer the first thing you should try is cleaning the lens contacts with an eraser. If that doesn't work you could try removing the battery and reinserting it to reset the camera. It seems to me that if there was a compatibility issue going on you should have seen that from the start. As far as what lens you should buy both Tamron and Canon make very good lenses, but with Canon lenses you shouldn't ever have compatibility issues. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

Is a tamron 28-300 F/3..5-6.3 AFC adaptable to my canon T3I?


Tamron makes their lenses with a variety of camera mounts. If the lens has a Canon mount then it will work fine on your T3i. If it has another mount then it will need an adapter, and you will lose some functionality (probably autofocus and autoexposure).

Sigma produces lenses for different brands of camera's. The optics are the same, but the connection differs from brand to brand. So if you have a Sigma lens for Nikon, you won't be able to use it on a Canon or Sony. Unless you buy a adapter. But when you start using an adapter, you will lose the Af in most cases, because the electronic in the lenses differ also. and that can't be bridged.

Wil the Tamron AF 80-210mm 1:4.5-5.6 fit on my Nikon D3000 and if so how does it perform?


Assuming the lens has a Nikon mount, it will fit on the D3000. Tamron makes their lenses with a variety of mounts, so that one with a Canon mount, for example, won't fit onto a Nikon body.

This lens lacks an autofocus motor so you'll have to focus manually. Other than that, it will work fine. It's not the sharpest lens available, but it's also not the most expensive.

28-200mm F/3.8-5.6 LD Aspherical autofocus does this lens fit Canon 40 d?


Tamron makes their lenses available with a variety of mounts. A lens with a Canon mount will fit Canon cameras but not Nikon cameras. A lens with a Nikon mount will fit Nikon cameras but not Canon cameras. As long as you buy a lens with a Canon mount, you shouldn't have any problems.

Try gently cleaning the electronic contacts on the lens's mount with an eraser. This will remove any mild oxidation on the contacts. If this doesn't resolve the problem, then contact Tamron and ask if there are any issues using this particular lens with a Canon 40D.

Attaching it to a Canon EOS 400D REBEL XTI


Totally different lens mounts, you might be able to get an adapter ring, but it wont function amazingly. Honestly, you're better off just selling this lens and buying a Canon 70-300 instead.

AF 70-300 causes error 99 in my Canon 300D


This is usually a torn flexible circuit or binding aperture in the lens. It'll have to go to a repair shop for replacement. About a $80 job.
