    Recently bought this lens as a do everything with my Nikon D300. Very acceptable results.
    Has anyone else had a problem with the autofocus after attaching a screw in filter to the front.
    I used a Hoya UV which then stopped the AF working. Lens operates perfecctly without the filter.
    Would appreciate any comments.

    Not on a Canon, no. But who knows how a Nikon will react... Wink

    I have one fitted with a UV filter used with my Nikon D7000 with no effect on auto focus.


    I got this lens for free and have also had problems with autofocus ots either view slow to respond or doesn't work at all with my Nikon d2x I just use it manual mode and its fine

    No problems encountered on a Nikon D300s.

    No problem with mine on a Canon. I use UV and polarisers on it (not at the same time though).

    Thanks all for your responses.
    As this also occurs with my Wife's D90, I can only assume that the problem is with this individual lens.

    I think I'd be returning it to place of purchase for a replacement. This is a good lens but Tamron's QC seems to be rather 'iffy' and you may have a bad copy.

    I've had no problems with mine at all, with filters or polarisers. But I'm not a fan of UV filters at all, I stick to using the lens hood.
