A fleck frustrated with Tamron and their lack of firmware


ii

I know, preaching to the choir but I was just on the Tamron website and the list of lenses that work with the Nikon Z serial vs the Canon R is ridiculous.  It’s obvious that they have updated the firmware for the Catechism R lenses as the additional ones that work on Catechism vs Nikon are on Version 3.0.  I simply don’t understand why they tin can’t practice the same for the Nikon.  I have a 45 and xc that I am getting fix sell as they are useless on my Z6.  Very frustrating.

Re: A bit frustrated with Tamron and their lack of firmware

Canon + Nikon don’t generally help 3rd party lens makers, almost ever (Tamron has collaborated with Nikon in the past, but that’s prob an exception).

I’m guessing that the Canon RF is simpler or closer to the EF protocols that the F is to Z for Nikon, they take to contrary engineer the software to get their lenses to work properly. I call back adding IBIS might accept been one of those things that gets the firmware wonky on the F to Z lenses.

I have a 35mm f1.8, that works… without autofocus. Thankfully it’s “COMING SOON,” but I’d be pretty po’d if I had bunch of G1 F mountain lenses that no longer worked properly.

My other camera is a µ4/3, and I’ve been pretty spoiled with lens compatibility beyond brands.  I know it’southward in Nikon’s all-time interests to sell lenses, but I wish they would open upwardly their mountain to third parties.

Re: A flake frustrated with Tamron and their lack of firmware

Tamron did recently announce they are working on firmware on 3 additional Nikon lenses, and so they are working on it.

As far every bit the number of Catechism lenses versus Nikon lenses that get firmware updates- I’m sure information technology is direct tied to the # of lenses they have sold for each model. Terminal time I checked, Canon was all the same out-selling Nikon, so it makes sense they would try to attain the broadest segments of their customer base outset, and and so work their fashion downward the listing of lenses starting with the best selling first.

I’thousand lucky in that the merely Tamron lens I currently ain was one of the first Nikon mount lenses they updated.I cautiously employ each new Nikon firmware update in my camera body, hoping it doesn’t break compatibility with my 3rd party lenses.

If I were in your shoes, I’d exist frustrated as well, and I would question my future purchases from tertiary party companies. I got rid of a Tamron lens that they won’t update, and will only buy Nikon in the future. That makes half-dozen new Nikon lenses since I bought my Z7, and not all of them South series either.

Re: A bit frustrated with Tamron and their lack of firmware

I imagine It could be a fairly complex job to reverse engineer an entirely new mount and focusing system. Mayhap in some cases it merely isn’t possible to make one-time lenses compatible with new tech? That said, I’m sure it’s frustrating.

Re: A chip frustrated with Tamron and their lack of firmware

Looks similar they only released a bunch of new firmware updates:

The 45 and 90 still aren’t in the list, but if they’re update the 35 I’d imagine the 45 should exist soon.

Or, just sell the 45 and go the 50/1.8S.

Edit: I see you already have the 50.

That makes perfect sense if the protocols are so much different between the F to Z.  It merely seems similar if the can event a quick fix for the G2 lenses then I am non certain why the others take so long.  Unless in that location are some hardware issues that also need workarounds.  I take been very happy with Tamron up to my Z6.

Good to know.  I but had Tamron lenses previously every bit they seemed to exist good quality vs value.  I do demand F lenses for my D850.  I am (very) slowly working on my S lens lineup then I may just cease upwards duplicating for my Z and my D850.  Kinda what I was trying to avert in the outset place.  I simply always feel I am one firmware away from losing my usage of my Tamron lenses.  Because of that I wait a few weeks at least for each release to make sure there are no major issues that people are reporting with lenses.

Given that they take said they take no plans on updating seventy-200 f/2.8 VC (G1), this is the last fourth dimension I will ever get a Tamron. A few hundred $ you typically relieve while purchasing their inexpensive lens is not worth a hassle. Thankfully I only have 1 Tamron lens. It volition be used with my DSLR until information technology is fourth dimension to throw information technology out.

In answer to

I have besides just seen Tamron’s announcement of additional ‘tap-in’ uniform lenses f/w updates for the FTZ.

Well I suppose I could of merely waited these concluding 9 months for Tamron to get round to announcing anything new – I gave up and replaced my 100-400 and 10-24 with Sigma.

I have no idea how many mails they have had from annoyed owners – they had six from me.

I just dont purchase the arguement about the difficulty of the contrary engineering – after all sigma seemed to manage this without drama. I am inclined to think that information technology was well down on their listing of priorities until they got fed upwardly with being hassled by users – maybe.

Tamron have ‘grade’ for this equally most Nikon 1 /FT1 users can attest to.

Anyway its byebye Tamron from me – apart from the adaptall2 glass that I still accept.

Not actually relevant every bit you don’t know how each designed their lenses. Possibly information technology actually was quite a bit more hard for Tamron than whatever of united states of america will know. We just don’t take enough data to back upwards opinions similar this.

I am inclined to think that information technology was well down on their list of priorities until they got fed up with existence hassled past users – maybe.

I hold on the maybe office. If that is truly the example, this could exist a case study of how not to do things at university levels.

Tamron have ‘course’ for this as about Nikon 1 /FT1 users tin can attest to.

Anyhow its byebye Tamron from me – apart from the adaptall2 glass that I still have.
