Another issue - with D4's
In reply to joonee1988, Aug 2, 2012

How are they going to update the firmware on existing lenses - is it possible?

The Tamron's VC plays nice with the D800 (tested with grip) at shutter speeds below 1/60s.

However, it doesn't work well with the D4. There is always a small amount of motion blur (say 1 pixel).

I like the lens optically.

However - they NEED to sort this out as the VC was what I was after.

I think it is stupid that the user has to check the shutter speed constantly and turn the VC on or off. I contacted the Tamron distributor here, and they said that a firmware update is coming in a few weeks. Hopefully, the issue will be worked out through it.
