A sad entry in the journal of the compulsive lens adapter

For anyone using a Tamron 18-400 with a Commlite AEF-MFT, be warned from my recent personal experience that upgrading the lens to firmware “Version2” (as displayed in the Tamron Tap-In Console app) will render the lens incompatible with the Commlite adapter. Prior to this, “Version1” did function with the adapter, which in retrospect I understand to not have a USB port and thus no software upgrade path. Nor can Tamron lens firmware be downgraded, according to their website. I will now be shopping for a different adapter…
