    Hello,

    I am using a Tamron 200-500mm on a D7000. Since a few weeks I have been having trouble with the lens. Using another Nikor lens does not give any problems with the same body.

    I am getting a f33/fee error if a turn the lens too much clock wise. Also sometimes I cannot use autofocus, the motor seems to spin step by step which takes for ever to focus.

    What to do???

    I live in Costa Rica in the jungle, only monkeys here and I have already asked them..

    Thank! Tongue

    It sounds like a hot sweaty place. Have you tried storing the lens in a plastic bag with some silica gel. Perhaps the contacts have moisture in them.

    Make sure that the lens is set to its smallest aperture setting and lock it there if it has a locking device. Check that lens is set to AF, clean the lens and body contacts.

    The "fee" error is when the aperture ring on the lens is not set to its smallest aperture (highest f number). As icphoto says, it can usually be locked in that position.

    aperture ring is at smallest value locked of course Smile
    I'm very sad as I love this lens:

    Just in case it is the camera body (although I doubt it) take the battery out and leave it for a while, and/or do a factory reset of the camera, if that does not work, and other lens combinations work on the body I suspect your lens may be faulty. SadSad

    just had the lens in a bag of rise (not touching the rice..) for 24 hours. didn't help.
    Camera works well with other Nikor lens so I guess that's not it. Will do the battery trick to make sure.

    any other suggestions?
