Hi everyone

I'm about to buy this lens (used one)

Tamron LD A14N 18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 Di XR Aspherical IF Lens For Nikon

And on the comment, the seller wrote : "This lens works with Nikons from 2005 and before. It will not AF on models which require internal auto focus motors."

Does that means I won't have AF when I'll connect it to my Nikon D3100?

Thanks to anyone who can help.

This Tamron lens is a 'screw drive' type - meaning that it will be AF by the motor drive inside the camera body, such as D2, D70, D80, D90, D300, D3, D4, D600, D700, D800... that doesn't autofocus on your D3100 camera body and other entry level DSLR Nikon (D40, D60, D3X00, D5X00).

The only way to take photo on your D3100 with this lens is manual focus.

Hope that helps.
