Question about Tamron Cameras

1 Answer

I sent my canon 40D for repairs and found out that it was the Tamron 11-18mm lense that was broken. They did not tell me what was wrong with it but said not to use it. When then lense was attached, I was not able to depress the "shoot" button and get the camera to focus. Nothing would happen. After a few weeks, after puttin it on manual to be able to take the picture, the camera then said there was a problem with the contacts or something to that extent. Any suggestions?

This is a bit off the wall, I know, but have you contemplated taking the drastic step of getting the lens mended ?

SOURCE: Nikon D40x AF-S Nikkor 18-55 mm 1:3.5-5.6 GII ED Lense Trouble

I've found the same thing with my D40x and the 18-55mm AF-S lens. I took a really close look at it and found that the mount on the lens is badly worn on all three of the bayonet tangs and one is cracked at the base. What happens in my case is that the lens has movement when mounted on the camera - just enough to stop the contacts from mating properly. Hence, no photos. Am taking it to Nikon to get it fixed. I suggest if this is your problem, that you take it to the repair man.

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.

User Manual


I checked the Tamron website menu of manuals and one is not listed. This is a pass-thru device, so other than placing it between your lens and camera body, there should be no additional settings. Your camera focus and exposure is thru the lens so the camera should adjust seemlessly. Please tell us what the problem is, what lenses and body you are using.

When I put the canon ex40 II in autozoom, it does not show focal length or distance on canon 40D, what am i missing? canon 40D has the latest 1.1.1 firmware


The lens you are using might not support the autozoom. Some Sigma, Tamron and other 3th party lenses are known for these problems. Best solution is to buy genuine Canon lenses, the best partners for your Canon body. (No I'm not related to Canon, I've just seen a lot of these problems with other lenses)

It's not the Autofocus, there's no 'non-engineer' fix. Lens and slider have failed, it's basically broken inside and I suspect it was the original fault. It's about £160-200 outside of warranty to fix via a canon authorised repair agent such as www.camera-repair.co.uk in Colchester. Send it back, get your money back.

It most likely was a short in the repaired lens that caused the sensor to go bad over time.

I have been shooting with Canon cameras and lenses for many years and I do not always turn off power before switching lenses. It is not a big deal.

Lens jams when extending or retracting


This is either due to a cracked internal roller or a cracked/broken internal cam. The lens will have to be sent to Tamron for repair.

Quantaray 28-200mm Aspherical IF


Usually.
Quantary Lenses are made by either Sigma or Tamron That lens was usualy made buy sigma. the way to tell is to take it to a camera store that sells 28-200 lenses and hold your lens next to the sigma or tamron. They will look the same just with a different name. one of the main difference's between the store brand quantaray and sigma is that alot of time the metal bearings used in the name brand are replace with plastic ones for the quantaray. I tell you that just so you know why the sigma lenses cost more.

you can also find broken ones on online auction sites and use them for parts.


hope you get it working,
Caleb

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.
