Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter.
Do they still work with the eos R?
The difference is with the G2 versions you can update the firmware yourself with the tap in console. And I can imagine they will focus on the G2 versions first because they will reach a lot bigger part of their customers as, be honest what percentage of the people with older lenses will send them in for a firmware flash. The people with G2 series or style lenses with more than one lens will buy the tap in console. Or people will buy the newer EOS R compatible lenses.
Have you tried to contact Tamron about this?
Download the latest firmware using the tap in console.
