    Default encounter wif tamron 70-300mm LD DI

    yo peeps...encounter some prob...
    er...i got a 2nd hand tamron 70-300mm LD DI.
    it works well...
    but when it comes to e range of around 200mm onward, the aperture cannot go higher than f5.6...
    if higher than f5.6 (f7.+++)...error will appear on my canon 450D...saying tat lens contact has to b clean..but..i brush n clean many times le..still cannot...
    yesterday, i pm-ed e guy who sold me e lens...but till now no reply..
    so...is e lens suppose to at jus f5.6 for 200-300mm or...is it faulty? possible to b my camera fault?...wish to try on another camera...but..i only got 1 cam....no frenz who play camera leh..
    sad..

    1) See if there's any Canon user here willing to help you to test on their cam body.
    2) Can your other lenses stop down to a smaller aperture? If yes, then unlikely it's your cam's fault.

    I think the problem lies with the lens not your cam. Maybe should check with Tamron & not Canon instead.

    Most ideal solution is to get a refund from the seller (which I'm sure if it can be done since the seller seems to have MIA).
