While testing out my D800 with all of my lenses I found that when I mount my Tamron 90 SP Macro to the D800 and use in in Live View mode and manual focusing, it 'twitches' the Live View screen and makes little 'clicking' sounds... coming from the camera/lens. In auto focus mode there is no problem with the jittery screen or the noises...only in Live View in manual focus. In all cases the actual focus of the image is fine.

I contacted Tamron and they tell me that there should be no problems with compatibility with the D800. I also tested the Tamron 90 with my D90 and had no problems at all. I know there is another thread about the D800 and manual focus but wanted to get this out to others as a main thread to see if anyone has tested and found any problems... or if they will! My gut reaction after the tests is that the problem is related to the D800 compatibility since the D90 works fine with the same lens. Any thoughts or other problems found by others??
