Non-Canon lens problem.

You need to get the Tamron upgraded. Not sure if it's possible. Call them to find out.

hello
i too had a problem with a sigma 18-200
but i thought tamron had a agreement with canon and paid them a license fee
anyway if the lens is not very old call tamron and they might re-chip lens under warranty
im just sticking with canon
you can get some older lenses at very decent prices if you dont have a lot of $$$$$ in the bank
good luck
pete

Great result.

The 3rd part makers cannot ensure forwards compatibility, but they are generally very good about upgrading lenses that stop working on newer Canon bodies.
