Intersting ! So not only the AUTO-FOCUS, but also the VIBRATION REDUCTION system works when this Tamron is coupled to the Nikon V1 thru the FT-1 ?

I thought only the Nikon lenses were 100% compatible ???

Yes, there are some third party lenses that will Auto Focus, meter and activate the Vibration Reduction systems.

Some Sigma's and Some Tamron's seem to work but not all.

Before considering buying a lens or an adapter please make sure you are very certain that they will work together, best way is to have a trip to your local camera store.
