D90 + Tamron 18-270 Problems...
Dec 19, 2008

I just got a new Nikon D90 body and purchased a Tamron 18-270mm lens with it. I have run into a real deal breaker with this. Since my previous camera was a Pentax I don't have any other lenses to try with the D90 so I am just assuming the problem is with the lens.

Everything seems to work fairly well TTL but in Live View mode it can't get a focus in Auto focus on anything above about 150mm... it tries and tries and then settles on blurry. It makes the video recording useless if you can't get a focus before you start recording. I don't know if I got a bad lens or if there is a compatibility problem, but I would love to know for sure. I may just settle on the 18-200 Nikkor lens to be safe.

Just wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience with this.
