Description

NOTE: This new lens has a buit-in motor and as such is perfectly compatible with the D40, D40X and D60 bodies.    The AF70-300mm F/4-5.6 Di LD Macro 1:2 features a Di* optical system designed for digital SLR cameras. *Di (Digitally integrated) is a designation Tamron gives lenses featuring optical systems designed to meet the performance characteristics of digital SLR cameras as well as film cameras.
