Tamron SP 70-300mm f/4-f5.6 VC etc etc on V1

I just bought the above lens for my D600 and tried it on the V1/FT1 for a lark. It gives me a lens error. If I look down the barrel I can see the iris cycling full to minimum & back about once a second.

Yet a chum can use his Tamron 18-270mm on the V1 with no problems.

I'm not really all agog to use the combo, but it's irksome that it doesn't work.

Any ideas?
