Lens makes a whirring noise but will not
The most likely cause for this is stripped gears within the lens.This will require complete disassembly to repair and can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not really a user serviceable problem and should be done by a qualified service technician.
My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Actually you are doing really well cause the Tamron specifications for that lens is 1.5m translated into real numbers that's 4.92 feet. If you want some serious macro let me suggest the Canon 100mm F2.5 Macro lens it's not all that bad for price unless you get the IS version then it's out of the park well sort of. Most of my macro work is done on a tripod anyway so the IS is a waist for me.
Here is a review on that lens.
Also is you are using the APS size sensor there is a focal factor of 1.6 so the 100mm lens just grew to 180mm and twice as fast as your Tamron. Cheers
I sent my canon 40D
This is a bit off the wall, I know, but have you contemplated taking the drastic step of getting the lens mended ?
Where can I find a Tamron Fotovix repair manual
Repair manuals can be bought by certified repair centres. Sometimes you get the manuals when you have done the repair course at the firm. Not sure Tamron does so. But they most of the time don't sell these manuals to normal people, to avoid they start opening a lens, because they never will be able to put it together as a working lens, without the tools, like a collimator.
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...
"I also purchased a Fotodiox Lens Mount Adapter,
What mount do you have on the Tamron lens? (The built-in mount.) If it has a Nikon mount, you don't need an adapter at all. If it has the Adaptall mount then the adapter should fit onto the back of the lens, then the combo should fit onto your Nikon camera. If the lens has a different mount then nothing you can do will make it fit.Does the adapter fit onto the lens?
