Tamron 28-200

Post by krystalsgrandad » Fri Aug 12, 2016 2:32 am

Recently I moved over to a Nikon D3300 and was looking for a little help about the Tamron 28-200mm.

Before investing in one, I was hoping that someone could tell me if the lens and my camera were compatible and would work. I've heard and read some good things Tamron and how in several tests and reviews by well known professionals they were rated, either very close behind or just ahead in quality. My only concern is that my camera may recognize the lens. I would just go for the 18-200, but it costs that little extra cash that I can't afford.

I used to have Nikon D7100 and had a few Tamron lenses, personally i didn't have any issues with them myself

Thanks Tom, I'm just hoping that there are no issues with recognition between the two. I had one for a Sony that I bought (please don't judge me :lol: ) and that was fine, it's just that I've heard not all versions of a maker are compatible with certain camera models.

just buy it with a credit card, paypal or new, that way if it doesn't work you can send it back :)

That's just my plan as I'm buying from Ebay

This is the lens I'm considering: Tamron 28-200mm AF XR IF F3.8-5.6 Macro lens

Thank you, you've been a great help. I really appreciate it. If it's too slow for at least it'll put me on for now. I have heard a lot of pretty good things about it though.
