D90 Liveview and Third Party Lens problem

Hello,

Anyone else having a problem like this?

I have a Tamron 17-50mm 2.8 newer one with micro motor and a Sigma 50-150mm 2.8 with HSM. In Liveview mode and only and at the longer focal lengths of both lens the D90 will not lock focus and gives up after about 1 to 2 seconds of trying. The lenses work great with the phase-detection focusing system.

I am quite sure it's the lens and I will need to send them in for servicing as I had this problems in the past with other newer cameras and older third party lenses.

Just checking to see if anyone else has run into this issue.

PS. I have an older Tamron 28-105mm 2.8 and Sigma 28-300mm 3.5-6.3 Macro both with the screw drive and the focusing works ifine in Liveview.

Thanks,

RM
