Tamron issued a notice that some of their Di/Di II series lenses will not work properly on the Nikon Z7 mirrorless camera with the FTZ adapter. A reader did some quick testing and sent me this list: Problems: Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2  is incompatible (error: press shutter release button again) Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 has exposure problems (screen stutters between a normal and darker than normal exposure, photos seem fine) No problems noted so far: Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 Tamron SP 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro 1:1 VC USD Let’s start a list of Nikon Z compatible (and not-compatible) third party lenses – please add your feedback in the comments section and I will create a list. Tokina is currently testing their lenses and the results from the  Tokina 24-70mm Ff/2.8 AT-X Pro FX are optimistic: Here is the official notice from Tamron: Notice about compatibility for Nikon Z7 with Tamron lenses Dear users and potential purchasers of Tamron interchangeable lenses.

Nikon’s Photokina press release suggests no further product announcements

Nikon Europe issued their press release for the 2018 Photokina show (September 26-29) and it seems that the new mirrorless Z system will be the main attraction at the Nikon booth.
