I tested a F601  with 3 Tamron lenses today.  i loaded it with outdated ORWO NP22 for processing on my homemade 510-Pyro 1:100   The Back Catch is broken so I had to tape it up. The  'Auto-Focus' did not work on the 2 AF TAMRONS a 35-90 and a 90-300 mm . There was a Tamron SP BBAR MC 17mm f3.5 with built-in filters I tried all on ;Manual Focus'' Also I could not get MATRIX or SPOT metering only CENTRE-WEIGHTED. 

35-90mm f4-5.6 lens  DROUGHT CONDITIONS
