Hi all on here.

I have just purchased a lens from Ebay but have a bad feeling it might not be what I'm looking for. The lens is a Tamron AF 28-300 mm F/3.5-6.3 XR DI LD zoom. I like to use the 10 segment 3D matrix metering but know that this can only be achieved with D or G type lenses. The question is obvious now.... is this Tamron classed as a D or G type lens? I use Fuji S3 Pro. Any advise will be great...

Thanx

Richard

G lenses do not have an aperture ring.

The Tamron 28-300 is a D lens, that means it has a chip inside the lens that sends focal length (and probably more) information back to the camera.

Google is a wonderful application. You might want to try it sometime. It took me all of 10 seconds (maybe less) to find that link.
