Shouldn't this thread be in the LENS section?

Called tamron again today and they said, the lens inside would need to be changed.

Tamron won't quote me over the phone and said I would have to send it in for a quote.

I was asked for the model and were told, it's an old model from about 5 years ago and would not be viable to repair. They think it should be ok.

The model tamron lens I have is 572D, that is the old dicontinued lense.

The new Tamron lense is model A017,so make sure you get that one if you buy tamron.

Did you actually take your air blower, open the shutter and blew the sensor? Because that always works for me, no matter how dusty or scratched my lenses are.

I've never heard that scratches or dust on lens elements could be visible on a photo and I'm quite sure that the lens is fine.

Juri the problem is inside the lens, not on the outside. If you look back you will see photos from inside the lens.

No way to clean it without taking it apart.
