From the horse’s mouth — at last. At: tamron.com — press releases.
Click to access my post. I started talking about this nearly a month ago.
I am not happy BUT I think this is progress. There is one and only one Tamron lens that I am interested in. It addresses ALL my zoom needs. I really would like it to work flawlessly on a Nikon Z6. If it doesn’t I will have to get the Nikon version and that costs twice as much and is twice as heavy.
Luckily time is on my side. I don’t plan to get the Nikon Z6 till 2019. So, I have time … I think.
This is the lens I want. I will be getting rid of a Sony 24-240mm. So, this will give me more reach at a lower price!
So, this morning I went looking for it. Got it from the Nikon Website. But, you can download a copy directly from here. That way you can buy yourself a few seconds and dive straight in.
I need to study it further — but I will have plenty of time. I do NOT plan to get my Nikon Z6 till after Christmas. I want all the holiday craziness to be over and for Nikon to have got rid of its first batch. I can wait. The Sony a7 II is still doing good.
This was in the ‘DPReview.com’, ‘Nikon Z Mirrorless Talk’ Forum. I responded.
I also did a post in the ‘Third Party Lens Talk’ forum.
I do NOT have ANY hands-on experience with adapters — on any camera. I have stayed away from ‘adapted’ lenses. But, MY main rationale for migrating to Nikon is to be able to use affordable existing lenses. Why now? Because until the Z6/Z7 Nikons did NOT make a full-frame mirrorless. Simple as that.
This does NOT make sense to I.
If a Tamron lens, with a Nikon FX-mount, works flawless on a Nikon D850, then it is a full-compatible Nikon FX-mount lens. The FTZ adapter should support without a glitch.
I suspect that Nikon has firmware inside the Zs that are rejecting Tamron lenses. That is not good.
