Clicking sound in Autofocus: I have a Tamron

Clicking sound in Autofocus: I have a Tamron 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD. When I use Autofocus I hear a terrible clicking sound periodically as it's searching. I really like this lens and I've only owned this lens for 2 months. So far I've done very little shooting on it and what I've shot has mostly been in manual mode. Is this clicking a sign of trouble and is it fixable?

SOURCE: Tamron lens makes a clicking noise

It is dealing with the films. when closing the lens in the fabric, the electrical film changed its position to an unwanted situation. This makes noise sometimes. It is not important for functinality of the lens. But it only gives you an unwanted noise. There is nothing to do because film dries as the times passes. It needs to be changed but is not cheap. So it is better to go on to use it.

SOURCE: my Nikon 55-200mm will not function in autofocus

hi there,

i`ve once experienced the same problem as your,
the reason was the motor in the lens. it couldn`t work normally
to trouble shoot this, you should contact a professional service technician,
and i hope the lens is still in warranty condition

thanks

SOURCE: What is the focal length

It's not the lens but the camera that determines the focal length multiplier. On some cameras the 18-270mm lens is an 18-270mm. The XSi's imaging sensor applies a 1.6x multiplier on any lens used with the camera, so the 18-270mm will be approximately 29-430mm.

Was I sold a 'pup'? Tamron lens box says AF55-200mmF4-5.6LD MACRO. Can't find macro setting on lens or instructions. Looking at your site, Product Details says 'No Macro'. So what's...


Excerpted from a www.photo.net review of the lens:

Though the Tamron AF 55-200mm Di II LD Macro has "Macro" in its name, it's not really a macro lens. Maximum magnification is about 1/3 life size (Tamron spec it at 1:3.5) as you can see from the following image below, which was shot at 200mm and at the closest focus distance (0.9m/37.4"). This isn't too bad, but it's more of a close focus telephoto lens than a "macro" lens (bolding for emphasis added).

Hi, It wouldn't autofocus on the D5000 as the body doesn't have an auto focus motor in the body and since that lens is AF, not AF-S, it won't autofocus. It should autofocus on the D7000 though, how far away are you from the object you're trying to photograph?

Tamron 28-200 AF Aspherical LD. Does it have manual focus? If yes, where?


There should be a switch just in front of the back of the lens marked "AF" and "M". Set it to M for manual focus, AF for autofocus.
