Re: It's probably the lens

I have the same lens and to my surprise, it just worked with my Z6 with the FTZ adaptor. But it didn't work well with Tamron 24-70 f2.8 G2 and Tamron 85 f1.8 VC. It wouldn't focus right and the images I took were all blurry. But I found out that I had to update the lenses and after I updated the lenses, both lenses worked just fine with the Z6.

So my surprise was that the 15-30 f2.8 worked well with the Z 6 without getting the lens updates and as you know that this lens is the first generation and you just can not update the lens but the 15-30 G2 can.

My guess is that both the Z6/7 work well with the 15-30 but it's not compatible with the newer Z7II, possibly Z6II, too.
