Tamron AF 28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di LD Aspherical (IF) Lens (A09N II with built in motor for Nikon F)

Tamron has recently announced an update version of their very popular 28-75mm F2.8 lens to incorporate built in motor to the lens for the Nikon mount version. This means that the new lens will now be compatible with Nikon D40, D40X and D60 DSLR cameras. Of course, this new version is also fully compatible with all other Nikon DSLRs including the latest D3 and D300. This is a full frame lens, so yes it is fully compatible with Nikon D3…but who on earth that can afford a D3 will want a third party lens on their camera? 😛

The lens is now available at ShaShinKi.com:



Lens is directly import from Japan and will be checked/tested before sending to customer. 🙂

  1. Hi Paul,

    Yes, I tested every unit of Tamron 28-75mm lens too. For a good copy, the lens is really very very sharp. Else it would be soft and front/back focus. I find testing on Pentax mount the most difficult. Nikon and Canon is easy as the focusing sensor is easier to differentiate the target.

    Thank you.

  2. Hi,

    I have Nikon D50. Should I buy the one with motor or without motor? In low light condition, which lens perform better, in terms of focusing?
