Hello:
Have been testing my new D7100 in the field and noticed an anomaly with my Tamron Lens and Auto focus. I am using a Tamron DI 70-300 no OS. Lens was at 300 mm and wasn’t locking on many targets in my back yard. I was not getting the focus indicator, just right of left arrow. Sometimes it would work as advertised.. I then switched to my Nikkor 70-300 AF 1:4-5.6 G lens (Earlier kit lens, w/o OS,) and targets were locking in. With two lenses with similar characteristics why would the Tamron give this grief? Camera was set to AF-C 9 points and 5 points for test. Is this a Problem in the lens?
