Nikon D80 & Tamron Sp 90mm 1:2.5 Macro Compatibility?

Hello to everyone,

I have just joined and am already looking for help. I purchased a used Tamrom SP 90mm 1:2.5 Macro lens and have found that it will not auto focus on my D80. The lens seems to work fine when manual focused and the f2.5 makes it seem like it will be a handy piece to have around.

Now the question, does anyone know if this lens is just not compatible with the D80 or should I be having it checked on a Nikon auto focus film camera to see if it just doesn't work at all?

I'm unsure as to whether it should AF or not but I would say that for 99% of my macros I never use AF, so does it really matter?

Welcome to Pixalo Hardyreels

This lens changes from AF to manual focus by moving the focus ring back and forward. Have you got the lens set to manual?

I've removed you other post on this topic to advoid confusion.
