We would like to announce that we have discovered issues that some of Tamron Di/Di II series for Nikon mount models may not be operational properly on Nikon Z7, which was newly released on September 28, 2018, with Nikon Mount Adapter FTZ.

We are in process to search for the causes and will make further announcement of the compatibility for every single model once we find the solution.
