Question about Tamron Cameras

Open Question

Err 01 Communication between Camera & Lens is Faulty

Similar problem, different brand of lens: I have a Tamron 70-300 (AF70-300mm F/4-5.6 Di LD Macro) on a Rebel XS and am having the same problem. The weird part is, I used it problem free for a few weeks, and got a couple hundred shots out of it. Only recently has the ERR 01 started showing up. Now I take one pic, get the error, turn off the camera, turn it back on, and shoot again. The pics turn out fine--aperture, autofocus, any focal length... all are good.

I've cleaned the contacts, shot right when the battery was fully charged, every prescribed fix I've come across short of chookin's "buying a battery pack" one, and still no luck.

Make sure the aperture ring is set to the minimum f-stop number, ie f22,f32. It is usually colour coded orange

Nothing you can do. The Tamron is not compatable with your camera. So the focus will be slower

SOURCE: I am trying to use an older SIGMA 28 - 200 mm f3.5

To NOT get that error you need to use in AV mode. It's the only way that old Sigmas work with the new Canons. It's an aperture bug that old Sigma lens have and some the only way to fix it is to rechip it. The problem is that Sigma no longer rechips the lens.

cleaning the contacts did nothing for me. what ended up fixing it was turning the camera to AV mode and setting to the highest f value. (f22) and then taking a picture. after that i was able to change it to what ever and resume as normal. hoping i dont see that error again.

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).

It's probable that although it's designated Macro, the lens actually only gets in fairly close. I recommend you buy a closeup filter which is a simple lens you screw on the front of your lens. You can different strengths for getting in closer. Otherwise treat yourself to a set of extension tubes which do the same thing but more effectively.
I hope that helps

I just bought a tamron di 2 AF 55-200mm f/4-5.6 LD macro for my nikon D40 and i can't get it to autofocus


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.

I broke the top lens on my Tamron AF 70-200mm f/2.8 Di LD IF Macro Lens. I dropped it. Does anyone know how to order just the lens? I can replace it myself. Everything else on the lens is fine.


Contact Tamron USA via their web site or a phone call to get a price quote for the front lens assembly. However, I would strongly suggest that instead you allow Tamron to repair your lens since more than likely the internal roller glides have been compressed due to the impact. This would allow the front lens group to wobble a bit while focusing and zooming, and this would seriously affect the image quality.
