Tamron SP 17mm F/3.5

I recently purchase what was described as a new (never used) Tamron SP 17mm F/3.5. It came and looked new. When I tried out the lens I found that the shutter would not open. I believe it may have been dropped. There is a loose part inside. I see a set of three screws that I think would open the lens to the shutter compartment. Do you think that the shutter is replaceable or is there a manual someplace that I could look at.

The way in to this lens is from the rear. You'll need to remove the trim ring inside the mount and free the electronic connector from the mount ring before you remove the mount ring itself.

I Have a problem qith the Tamron 28-75Aspherical Lens XR Di for Canon mount. Just make a strange sound like to power on the iris motor when you insert the lens to the camera body. I just disarmed totally it, but the problmes seems to be with the electronics parts.

If you are interested I will sell the lens to you or you can sell your broken lens to me. For contact please write to partgio @ hotmail . com or to partgio @ yahoo. com or partgio @ gmail.com

Thanks in advance, all the best

Tamron 14mm 2.8 does not work on d90


This lens is compatible with your Nikon D90 according to this site:

http://lenshero.com/lens/Tamron-14mm-f2.8-IF-Nikon-f-lens

Your complaint "does not work" is rather broad, so I don't know what specific kind of problem(s) your having with it.

If you continue to have issues with it, make sure other lenses work on your D90 to eliminate the body as the source of the problem. Consider performing a 2 button reset on the D90 (and resetting any other customized settings to defaults) and try again. If it still "doesn't work" then contact Tamron to evaluate the lens for possible repair.

Good luck!

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.

Your question is posted under a Nikon version of this lens. I assume you are talking about using the Canon EOS mount version.

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.
