Tamron 18-270 on a Nikon d70s help

Anyone else use this combination?

Wife bought me the new lens for upcoming africa tirip.

My camera keeps locking up to the point that I sometimes have to pull the battery to reset it. Other lenses are fine.

Tamron wants me to send it back, camera store says it's because I have an older camera. I don't think that's true though because lens came out while D70s were still in production. There are no new software updates available for the camera.

Google only pulls up debate over superzoom lens clarity.

Has anyone else had this problem?

On a side note, when the lens works, the pictures are clear.

its what happens sometimes when you use 3rd party lenses on a camera. That is why I only use canon lenses.

I am new this forum so forgive me. I am having a similar problem with this lens on my D90. The entire camera will lock up and I will get err symbols on the info screen. When I use a different lens on the D90 no problems. When I put the lens on my D200 no problems...I am wondering if there is a problem with this lens on d90's an d50s. Have not tried the lens on my sons d50 yet.
this is a quote from the forums on Nikonians.org.
