"D5000"


Savannah, US
          

Just purchased a D5000 and am wondering if the Tamron 18-270 VC lens will work on this. Anybody have any experience with it?
This is a great forum and very informative. Love it.

The Tamron has a Built-In Lens Motor (BIM) so it will autofocus with the D5000. It should be fully compatible.

My Plan:

Get out of the car.
Get closer to the subject.
Pick the right mid-tone this time.

It will autofocus fine with my D80 but not with D5000. Shots are blurry unless using manual focus.

Do you have examples of the blurry shots?

I believe I have figured it out. The problem occurs when using live view and not when using the view finder. When using the view finder all works as supposed to. When using live view it is very slow but eventually gets there.
Thank you for replying.
