Tamron UK Lens Prices Across UK Suppliers

16th February 2009

The following is a guide to prices of Tamron Nikon Fit lenses from some UK suppliers. This is by no means an exhaustive list, but what we have tried to do here is to show the sorts of prices that you can get lenses for within the UK.

There is no Tamron column showing Recommended Retail Price (RRP) of the lens as the Tamron website did not list prices, so we only show prices from the various UK suppliers.

Nikon D40, D40x and D60 cameras do not have a mechanical drive to focus lenses, so only lenses that contain an electronic focusing motors will work with these cameras. In the table below we have highlighted the Tamron lenses that will work under D40/60 column. Di II lenses will not work with the D3, D3X or D700. The 18-250 lens has 2 models one without the electronic model and one with the electronic motor in it so as to work with these cameras.

The prices highlighted yellow show the cheapest price for that particular lens as at the time this list was put together where more than two suppliers listed the lens.

To understand what the lens abbreviations mean refer to our page on Tamron Lens Codes.

Disclaimer:  Prices were extracted off the suppliers websites at the 16th February 2009, prices will/may change over time and we will try to update them from time to time.
