    Then what do you mean by not compatible if its a nikon mount...is it the mounting? or check your setting. You can try to dismount then mount again!

    Hi, is there a different between the SP version and this AF version? In the used market, I saw it retailed between $140 to $200 whilst the SP version goes into $400 to $500. Or I got it all wrong?

    Would user be able to share how much they paid for theirs?

    SP 70-300mm F4-5.6 Di VC USD is the newer version compared with the AF 70-300mm F4-5.6 Di LD Macro.

    For the SP version, Tamron claim they give extra features such as to use one Extra Low Dispersion (XLD) and one Low Dispersion (LD) glass, add Vibration Compensation (VC) to 4 stops lower, use Ultra Sonic Drive (USD) silent motor, full time manual feature for manual focusing, internal focusing, new anti-reflection multi-coating to reduce ghost and flare, etc.

    If I were you, I would go to the SP version.
    NIKON D90 (2008-2010), D700 (2010-2012), D800 (2012-2014), DF (Dec 2013-Sep 2017)
