Hi,

Anyone here using the above combination? Need to find out if the Tamron 180mm macro lens works well with D200.

Thank you.

It definitely will not work on any of the cameras belong to espn.:bsmilie: But will work on many other people's D200.



Hope this help.

The Tamron 180mm works fine with my D70. Beautiful lens for macro.

D200 should be fine too.

no... never had the pleasure of owning it yet (used it tho..). however, if u are a reader of photovideoI, last mth's issue featured papilio and his amazing butterfly shots (he was the featured writer for macro photography).

he was using his D2x and tamron 180mm....

ie - no reason why it won't work on D200.

:bsmilie: That's a good one. Maybe Nikon will come out with VE undies (Vibration Enhancing). ;p

Thanks nw75. :) I had the opportunity of testing the D200 (courtesy of Nikon SG) for a couple of outings with my T180. No problems whatsoever. It's one of the most popular lenses for macro shooters who require a longer working distance from their subjects. Sharpness is definitely on par with the best around.

Price is about $1,240 (with GST) +/- $20 from the popular camera stores in SG. :)
