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!

Nikon’s Detailed Brochure For The Z6/Z7 Is Worth Studying — Download It Here.

by Anura Guruge


Click image to download Nikon’s original brochure in (safe) PDF form. It is 16MB.


Click to ENLARGE. Useful MINI tutorials.


Click to ENLARGE. More examples of all the built-on ‘Creative Controls’. I like the ‘red’ and might use it.


I noticed that folks on the ‘DPReview.com‘Nikon Z’ forum mentioned this brochure often (– justifiably as I now appreciate).

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.

I will keep you posted.

That The Nikon Z6/Z7 ‘FTZ’ Adapter Does NOT Support Tamron Lenses Is Very Troubling.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.

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.

Yes, of course, I will stay on top of this.
