LBA interruptus
Sep 2, 2009

I came home for lunch today, hoping to intercept a package from UPS. My timing was perfect, and I opened the package in great anticipation. Inside was the Tamron SP AF 70-200mm F/2.8 DI LD (IF) MACRO. I couldn't wait to get it on my K-7.

I turned on the camera, and... it asked me what the focal length was. Wait a minute, isn't the camera just supposed to know that? Then I noticed that the display said MF. Try as I might, I couldn't get it to auto focus.

With a heavy heart, I moved the lens to the *ist-DS. It also said MF and refused to focus.

I got on the chat line with B&H, and they sent me an immediate RMA. Bummer bummer bummer!
