Issues with D700 and these "super zoom" lenses?
Jul 4, 2012

I bought a Tamron 28-300 lens for my D700 a while back. The first couple of weeks I had the lens, it took great pics. But for the last couple of weeks, it wants to almost lock up when zoomed out past a certain point. When it does that, it won't focus. When I typically take the lens off the camera, it's still like that until I let it set a little bit. Once it's off the camera and moves fine, I can move it back and forth in my hand and it never lock up.

I have just assumed it's an issue with the lens (I bought it used). But someone suggested to me that D700s have an issue with these super zoom lenses. Has anyone heard of this, run across this, or is this incorrect info? My father-in-law has a D80, I'm going to mount the lens on it to see if it does the same thing.
