What happens if I use only one E-mount lens? can I remove both the lens and adapter without causing adapter malfunctions??

Yes you can. Since the adapter so thin, just be gentle with it.

Resurrecting this thread...I have an ETZ21 Pro on the way, and will be comparing it to the Fotodiox...the manual for the ETZ21 appears to basically say never to remove the adapter and lens as a single unit...says always to remove the lens, then remove the adapter, which isn't really a viable field solution.

But you're saying we're good to just leave it on the lens and attach as a unit? Don't want to fry it.

I hope they will not stop supporting the current ETZ21 we have. It would still be frozen occasionally.

I think some people do not know that you can instal pro firmware on your existing ETZ21 and will be supported along Pro version using the same FW file now on. They are same chip internally...

Which unfortunately means the new adapter still does not allow focusing when zooming a zoom lens I guess.

I had this on the FW 1.0 with the Pro adapter and my 50GM, but the 1.23 firmware on the site fixed it and it works extremely well now.

I'm using it on the Z7 II and Z8.

Have you tried rolling back the adapter firmware to previous versions?

All previous versions can be found here: https://megadap.net/etz21-firmware/

I still use mine, currently on the only z body I own - a z6ii
I only own Sony glass at this time, so I cannot tell you about Tamron experience though
AF is acceptable with some lenses, and good with others - with the Sony 200-600 its focusing fast, the 35 GM it focuses slow.

Here's an image taken through a thick, slightly dusty glass window this morning - handheld

Still have mine that's non-pro version with FW 2.13. Native is always better and we all know that but don't plan to buy into z lenses until z8 af performance is on par with A1 for my types of photography. Looking forward to next Z8 FW update in early 2024

I am using the Z8 with Nikon F mount along with E mount lenses. Sorry i do not have any tamron lenses. However, I do have the Sigma 14-24 DG DN E mount lens and it works fine with adapter on Z8.

Best review I've found so far. Net/net: good, but not great.

On Nikon Z8

Tamron 35-150mm, great performance.
Tamron 50-400, did not work 😒
Tamron 28-200 works fine.
