I'm thinking about getting a Nikon D70 body. I already have a Tamron 710N 28-200 AF on my old Nikon (non-digital) SLR. It's a few years old now, though, so I'm worried it might not be compatible with the D70.

Can anyone give me any idea if the 710N would work with the D70?

Many thanks,

Phil

Best bet is to drop Tamron an e-mail. I know some of the older Sigmas won't work with the D70 and needs to be re-chipped. With Sigma if the lens is under warranty they'll do it for free otherwise there is a charge associated.

I'm not sure if Tamrons have this problem. Haven't heard of any on the net.

I sent an e-mail to Tamron Support asking about this,since I am looking at the D70 and have the Tamron 710N. Here is the reply I received:

Unfortunately, this lens does not work on the digital cameras. It was made before the D technology was introduced in our lenses and is not compatible.


Guess I will need to look into another lens at some point.
