I'm not at home with camera gear, so cannot try it out yet. I've really been missing my long lens on the Z7.

https://www.tamron.com/news/press_release/20181116.html

We would like to announce that new firmware versions are now available for the following three Tamron models. The new F/W versions make the three models compatible with Nikon Z7 and FTZ adapter for general operations.

Applicable models
  • SP 70-200mm F/2.8 Di VC USD G2 (Model A025) for Nikon
  • SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2 (Model A022) for Nikon
  • 17-35mm F/2.8-4 Di OSD (Model A037) for Nikon

I got some late day shooting in, but it was very hazy and poor lighting. Most of the shots were ISO 2500-6400.

In any case, I think the Tamron 150-600g2 on Z7 was performing pretty well, maybe about as zippy as the 300mm f/4 PF on the Z7, in an unscientific comparison, which is pretty good. The Z7 still hunts a fair bit if it cannot get an early lockon. When the Z7 did lockon to a slow BIF (great egret), it did ok on most of the burst, but did miss one or two.
