Tamron and Sigma have to GUESS how to make their cameras work with Nikon bodies. They have to reverse engineer the AF algorithms. Tamron AF is just simply not as reliable as native Nikon lenses.

I am looking to get my first Tamron Zoom - the 24-70 F2.8 G2.  This will replace my Nikon 35-70 F2.8 AF-D and my Nikon 24-85 AF-S VR (it’s zoom is getting sticky and the focus is making sounds).

Is this is issue you are mentioning with Tamron guessing the Nikon AF algorithms handled by using the Tap-In Console?  I don’t mind doing the extra setup, to nail down the focus —- would this make the Tamron focus as reliable as a native lens?
