Welcome to the forum Rob.

Had this problem when I first attached a Sigma lens to the A700. Turned out that I needed to change a setting in the menu section. You should have an "Error Message" section in the manual that came with the camera... check for the error message and it will tell you how to reset so the lens can be used.

It's somewhere in the COG wheel menu setting for the A700 #2; RELEASE W/oLens is probably set to DISABLE - change to ENABLE.

Sorry about that then :(

Seem to recall this came up for discussion before so you may find an answer in the A200 section or someone will give the answer... they are a helpful lot here :)

Sorry again Rob

Try here; http://www.dynaxdigital.com/index.php/topic,6149.0.html

but looks like you don't have the AF with none SONY or MINOLTA lenses... not too sure if it applies with the TAMRON lenses as most [all?] Tamron work without changing any settings... just incase you change to other none Sony glass at some point.
