Tamron Lens Utility software

Both new lenses are compatible with newly-developed Tamron Lens Utility software. Via an optional connector cable, users will be able to adjust several aspects of their operation. It’ll be possible to customise the Focus Set button between an array of handy options, including the ability to set two preset focus distances and shift focus between them; to jump to a specific preset focus point; to select between AF and MF; and to switch the focus ring to setting the aperture instead. In addition users will be able to customise exactly how manual focus operates, and update the lens’s firmware if required.
