    My Tamron 28-75 keeps searching for auto focus, but ends up failing everytime. How much does it usually cost for a fix up?

    :(

    The limited warranty set forth below is provided by Tamron USA, Inc. and is applicable to Tamron Photographic Lenses purchased in the USA through an authorized dealer. The Warranty shall not extend to anyone other than the original purchaser of the lens or the person for whom the lens was purchased as a gift.

    How should I bypass this you guys?

    you probably have to have a receipt as proof of purchase. try to contact them and see how much it will COST to get it fixed. they might do it for free anyways if it's a known lens problem :dunno:

    Find your friend and have him dig for the receipt and warranty card
    Send the lens through him.
