Lens maker Tamron has released new firmware that makes three of its lenses compatible with Nikon’s new mirrorless full-frame models Z6 and Z7 and the FTZ adapter that allows for the use of Nikon F-mount lenses on the new mirrorless Z-mount. The firmware is available for the following lenses:
- SP 70-200mm F/2.8 Di VC USD G2 (Model A025) for Nikon
- SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2 (Model A022) for Nikon
- 17-35mm F/2.8-4 Di OSD (Model A037) for Nikon
The new firmware can be installed using Tamron’s optional TAP-in Console. Alternatively lenses can be sent in to Tamron for the technical service to apply the update. In the US you can call Tamron USA’s service department at 1-800-827-8880 for more information. In other regions you should contact your local distributor.
An an up-do-date list of available firmware versions can be found on the Tamron support website. If your Tamron lens has not been updated for Nikon Z compatibility yet, keep an eye on this page as new updates will be posted as they become available.
