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.

Tamron now offers a lightweight, compact, high-image-quality telephoto zoom lens with macro capability of 1:2 that can also be used with digital cameras: the AF70-300mm F/4-5.6 Di LD Macro 1:2 (Model A17) . The new lens is a Di type lens using an optical system with improved multi-coating designed to function with digital SLR cameras as well as film cameras. With this 70-300mm telephoto zoom lens, flipping a macro switch in the focal length range of 180mm to 300mm obtains a maximum magnification ratio of 1:2 at a minimum focus distance as short as 95cm (37.4"), enabling close-up shots of flowers, insects, and other objects that normally require the use of a specially designed macro lens. Moreover, this is a zoom lens that casually offers the distant capture and foreshortening effect pleasures of the 300mm ultra-telephoto world.

Main Features:

Improved Coatings Transform Zoom Lens into a Di Type Lens Designed for Digital SLR Cameras
By employing "Internal Surface Coatings" (i.e., multiple-layer coatings on cemented surfaces of plural elements) and new multiple-layer coating technology on ordinary elements, ghosting and flare due to reflections that occur when light enters through the front element and reflections caused by the imagers themselves are reduced to the absolute minimum. Additionally, upgraded advanced quality control raises the level of resolution performance standards and prevents flare due to aberrations, resulting in a telephoto zoom lens suitable for photography with interchangeable-lens type digital SLR cameras.

Macro Effect of 1:2 in Telephoto Zoom Range
Flipping a macro switch in the focal length range of 180mm to 300mm allows entry into the macro range, for photography as close as 95cm (37.4") from the subject. In the macro range, one can take advantage of the telephoto effect and a maximum magnification ratio up to 1:2. (In normal shooting ranges, the minimum focus distance is 1.5m.) In addition, since the focal length in the macro range spans from 180mm to 300mm, zooming can also be used to adjust composition.

Designed for Use on Both Digital and 35mm Film Cameras
The ultra-long telephoto zoom covering up to 465mm equivalent can be used on a digital SLR camera, while the wide-end 70mm can be used with a conventional 35mm film SLR camera for portraits and other moderately mid-range shots.

5 out of 5 stars   Great zoom/macro lens.
By AgentSmith (Ogden, UT) August 02, 2012
Review submitted for Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DI LD Macro f/ Nikon AF w/ Built-in Motor & 6-Year USA Warranty (TM70300DINA2)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
Cons: Bulky, Heavy
Other Comments: Bought this just days before leaving for the Grand Tetons & Jackson Hole. It arrived on schedule and in very protective packaging. Tried it out right away around the house and seemed to be exactly what I was looking for. It is replacing it's grandfather relative lens (same make & such) of 20 years which also captured amazing landscapes and wildlife. This lens didn't let me down. Still heavy, but worth the weight. Postcard perfect shots every time including moving water, distant lanscapes, and even low lighting. GREAT LENS!

4 out of 5 stars   Look like a pro...or paparazzi
By Liz the wannabe photo expert (Brooklyn, NY) October 27, 2011
Review submitted for Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DI LD Macro f/ Nikon AF w/ Built-in Motor & 6-Year USA Warranty (TM70300DINA2)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Amazing pictures, Strong Construction, Durable, Consistent Output
Cons: Slow Focus, Poor in Low Light, Heavy, Big
Other Comments: This lens is amazing for photographers that like to look like they know what they're doing (like my husband and myself). My husband uses this lens like he's paparazzi and will take pictures of me from across the street. It takes amazing photos, but you need to make sure you adjust the focus properly, or else it can get blurry. The one drawback is that it's not easy to throw my camera in a bag for impromptu photos because the lens is pretty massive. Though it is worth it for those planned pro-looking images.

Review submitted for Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DI LD Macro f/ Nikon AF w/ Built-in Motor & 6-Year USA Warranty (TM70300DINA2)

Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus
Cons:
Other Comments: Received both the lens and a used Nikon D90 a couple of days before traveling to view the STS135 launch in Florida. Set both lens and camera to autofocus and got a couple of great shots. Can't wait to learn to use the system. The lens was easy to handle with the D90 body.

4 out of 5 stars   Great product, GREAT price.
By camera junkie (Pittsburgh, PA) May 25, 2011
Review submitted for Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DI LD Macro f/ Nikon AF w/ Built-in Motor & 6-Year USA Warranty (TM70300DINA2)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Strong Construction, Rugged, Consistent Output, Durable
Cons: Tough To Attach
Other Comments: I would like to see a dot or similar spot on the lens to attach it to my camera. That is the only problem I had with it. I had to rotate the lens until it "clicked" with my camera and sometimes this took too long. Otherwise, it was a GREAT addition to my Nikon and I got some great shots that I would have missed without it.

2 out of 5 stars   Would not Recommend
By Thomas (Summerville, SC) May 09, 2011
Review submitted for Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DI LD Macro f/ Nikon AF w/ Built-in Motor & 6-Year USA Warranty (TM70300DINA2)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight
Cons: Blurry Focus, Slow Focus
Other Comments: Does not seem to focus well on far away objects and was unable to get it to take a good focused upclose (macro) shot. Seems to work good if subject not very far away where a close-up from a short distance is needed. I got it mostly for long range type shots but that doesn't seem to be what this is for. When in auto on my camera the picture seems overexposed (too much light) and I am not good enough at manual shutter speeds and f stops to use it otherwise. I should have done more research before purchasing this product. I will find a use for this at some point I am sure.
