Question about Tamron Autofocus 2x Teleconverter Lens for Nikon DSLR Cameras

1 Answer

Tamron teleconverter 2x AFs compatibility.

I use a tamron 70-300 telefoto lens with internal motor for my Nikon D40. I bought a Tamron 2x AFs teleconverter (compatible with D40 as per Tamron if using an "AFs"). My problem is, if I increase the focal lenght near the 300mm mark, I received an error message...Press Shutter release Button Again. But If I use it near the 70mm mark, it seems normal. But sometimes I receive such message.Will it also affect or damage my D40 if I constantly try to use it. Thanks a lot.

When using a TC, as the perceived focal length increases and the aperture falls off, AF struggles to work except in very bright light.

SOURCE: Tamron 28-300mm Model 185D Auto Zoom on Nikon d40

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.

SOURCE: Tele converter option for Tamron 28-75mm f2.8

This is a lens for Sony/Minolta cameras. It is not compatible with the Nikon D90. Hence a Teleconverter for Nikon will not work on this lens to mount it to a Nikon D90.

SOURCE: i just bought a tamron di 2 AF 55-200mm f/4-5.6 LD

That 2x is not AF-s compatible. It is the older Af style which the d40 does not support. Your camera store should have known this when they sold it to you, unless you bought it mailorder. Then see if they will let you return or exchange it.

SOURCE: want inexpensive 2x af teleconverter for d70 nikon lens 80-200 ed

The adapter will work if it is for the Nikon cameras Be aware you loose two stops and it makes the lens twice as long, so you need lots of light, to shoot at F5.6 (full open) and 1/400 of a second. when zoomed in. Your lens does not have image stabilisation.

I purchased a Tamron 135 mm F/2.8 Lens for a Nikon D40, what else do I need so that this lens will fit my camera?

If you got a lens with a Nikon mount then you don't need anything else to fit it to a Nikon camera.

Want inexpensive 2x af teleconverter for d70 nikon lens 80-200 ed

You can order the Tamron 2x teleconverter here. Be aware that not all lenses are compatible with teleconverters, and you can actually damage some lenses by trying to use them with a teleconverter.

I have a nikon d60... is the tamron 70-300 zoom lens compatible ?

Tamron makes their lenses with a variety of mounts. A lens with a Canon mount, for example, will not fit a Nikon. Assuming the lens has a Nikon mount then yes, it is compatible with the D60. However, the D60 lacks an autofocus motor, relying on the lens to have one. Some Tamron lenses have such a motor, some do not. Such lenses will not autofocus with the D60, but everything else still works, including manual focus.

I have a Nikon d3000 and a Tamron AF 55-200mm lens. I cant get the lens to autofocus with my nikon

The Nikon D3000 does not have a focusing motor built-in, relying on the lens to have a motor. The Tamron AF 55-200mm does not have the necessary motor; it only auto-focuses with Nikon cameras that have the motor in the camera body.

For Nikon lenses, you need lenses designated AF-S. For Tamron, you need lenses designated USD and/or BIM.

That probably wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

ALL Nikon AFS branded lenses are compatible with the D3000. The AF lenses are usable in manual mode. Sigma, Tokina and Tamron lenses without the built-in motor are manual mode as well.
To be sure, check the manufacturer;s websites.

Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8D VR G-AFS ED-IF Lens this will work for d3000

Hi,
This lens and ANY Nikon lens that has AF-S (built-in lens motor) in it will work with the D3000. In addition, some of the newer Tamron, Sigma and Tokina lenses that have the motor built in will work.
Be careful though in holding the heavy lens simply by the DSLR grip. The lens mount may not be able to support the strain.
Hope this helps, Andrew
