By David J. Crewe on August 6th 2019

Tamron has been releasing some incredible new lenses lately and thankfully, most of those new ones seem to work out of the box with the existing FTZ adapters. For those new, (and old), lenses that currently don’t, Tamron just issued an update on their lens compatibility with the Nikon Z6/Z7 mirrorless cameras and a firmware update for three additional lenses that are coming soon.
