My tamron 28-75mm shipped today from BH. I ordered on May 11th. Should be here in 2 days. The web site still says backordered. I wonder if I will need to do a firmware upgrade or if it will come installed?

We don't open and upgrade them before shipping them. We sent it as we received it. If they released new firmware after sending the lens to us, you will need to do the upgrade.

I understand, I know BH does not do a firmware upgrade. I was just speculating that it could have been a new lens from the factory after the firmware release.  I thought they suspended shipments until they found a fix. Why would they ship a lens that had buggy firmware if they could fix it before shipping?  I also hope that BH is not sending out returned lenses with front focus issues but are sending those back to Tamron.
