Customization Options

This lets you make micro adjustments to how a lens focuses, as well as compensate for any unwanted front- or back-focusing issues.
  • Focus Distance Limiter Customization: For lenses featuring a Focus Limiter switch, this setting lets you configure the specific distance ranges, using near and far distances, the lens-based switch will constrain focus to.
  • VC Adjustment: For lenses featuring Vibration Compensation, a choice of three different VC modes can be selected for use, including an option to prioritize the viewfinder image stabilization, an option to prioritize stabilization during shooting, and an option to balance stabilization between the viewfinder and captured images.
  • Full-Time Manual Focus Override Customization: For lenses with full-time MF override, this setting lets you set the mode to ON or OFF as well as fine-tune the sensitivity of the focusing ring between High and Low ranges.

Firmware Updating

In addition to customizing lens attributes, the console can also be used for updating lens firmware, and the console's firmware can also be updated using an Internet connection and by accessing a dedicated website.

TAP-in Utility Software

Asked by: Stacy
Yes, your Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2 should be compatible fully compatible with the Tamron TAP-in Console regardless of the market which only affects the warranty in the box. If you own a legitimate Tamron lens the console will allow you to run firmware updates and lens calibrations.

question

Where can I find a list of TAP-in compatible Tamron lenses in the EF mount?
Asked by: Michael
Tamron's List of Compatible Lenses for the Tap-in Console is on their website. The list has been updated as of February 2017. I did a quick search for tamron tap-in console and went to the first Tamron website link that was returned in the search. The Tamron link was 8 or 9 links down the page, after all the sales offers.With the February, 2017 update Tamron added support for the new SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2 (Model A022). It looks like there are a few other new additions as well.

question

Would anyone recommend using the TAP-in Console as a rear lens cap for convenience? I'm using it with my Tamron 85mm 1.8.
Asked by: Jesse
1. I would not recommend this as a suitable rear lens cap for two reasons: It is not convenient to use it that way and it would almost certainly void the warranty on the product. You can check this with Tamron Customer Service on their website.2. The cost of a generic rear lens cap for your lens is so minimal it would be more of a convenience to purchase one or two of these and keep them handy in case you lose one. Better to lose one of these than the TAP-in console.

question

For clarification, this is for SP prime lenses and will not work on the SP Zoom glass?
Asked by: Dik
I purchased my Tamron TAP-in Console for use with my Tamron 150-600mm G2 lens and my Nikon D750 camera. It works just fine with that combination, so I hope this helps answer your question. Your best bet is to contact either Tamron or B&H Photo, as I imagine they can give you a more specific answer.

question

Which Tamron lenses is this compatible with ? I am not talking about Canon, Nikon, Sony, etc. Within the Tamron for Canon lenses not all Tamron lenses work with this, as far as I can tell. This should be clearly specified in ... specs. Thanks.
Asked by: Spineanu
It works with the new 90mm macro and the 85mm f 1.8. The 45mm & 35mm f1.8 lenses can be modified for free to work with it.
