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

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.

They played from 1:00 to 1:30pm & again from 2:00 to 2:30pm. They were good. Since we got there shortly after 1pm and left around 2:45pm they were really the ONLY music we managed to catch at the Rotary Park Band Stand. There was a Reggae band at the City Hall plaza, playing at the same time, and I caught some of their performance and took some pictures.

Hard to miss. I knew I had to take some pictures. The message was GREAT — and much needed — and it was so photogenic. I knew that the colors would come out well. I was not disappointed. Very nice couple. I chatted briefly with them. A wonderful, worthwhile project and it must be very rewarding for them. Kudos & Bravo.

Canon EOS R: This One Picture In “Engadet” Killed It, TOTALLY, For I!

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.

All from this ‘engadget.com’ article.


When I saw that picture I knew at ONCE, without a shadow of doubt, that the Canon EOS R is NOT for I!

Those seeds are NOT in focus, though you can see that he tried to focus on them. That is NOT bokeh. He was trying to get the center in focus. I can relate to that pictures. Many of my pictures follow that composition.

Part of this has to do with the lack of IBIS. Shame.

I am SCRATCHED off the Canon EOS R from my list. It is now the Nikon Z6.
