And this is why you should never buy a Tamron or Sigma lens that is not compatible with their dock......

Amen, I got caught with that when I got the original Tamron 150-600mm. In Australia the support service is in my opinion, abysmal.

This is something I find appalling from just about everyone. In 2004 I got my E-300 from Olympus, and to upgrade it's firmware or to upgrade the firmware on a lens, you connected your camera to your computer with a USB cable and away you went. Here we are now, 14 years later, and it seems like Oly is still the only player where you can do that. At least the new Sigmas and Tammys can use a dock, but the big question remains WHAT TOOK YOU SO LONG!

Some are just too good to resist, but you can get burned on future compatibility. Buy with eyes open.

actually the list is not complete , i have G1 Tamron 70-300 , it is working fine, (just that auto focus not tact fast per se) but it is a old lens

my G2 24-70mm F2.8 is working like a charm
