Tamron to Announce New Tele Zoom Next Week.
« on: October 30, 2013, 05:52:53 PM »

A “serious” new Tamron?

Tamron is going to be announcing a new tele zoom lens next Thursday, November 7, 2013. Apparently it’s going to be a “serious” lens according to a Polish forum.


Something to compete with the Sigma 120-300 f/2.8 OS or Canon EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x perhaps?


Below is the teaser image found on the mentioned forum.

Probably their 200-500 updated with VC. And hopefully better optics.

I tried the above (200-500mm) lens, but didn't at all like it because of the optics & lack of VC. The size was not too bad, though - as I wanted a portable telezoom. Focus would have to be spot on though, ideally USD (like USM).

If there is a better option, that might be a good option. However I'm still glad I have my 70-300mm L, works a treat for great IQ on my 7D, and is very portable!

I'm not a brand-fanatic. What I do appreciate is using my 7D and 350D cameras along with a host of lenses & many accessories to capture quality photos, and share with friends.

It does resemble the 200-500.  I also had one, the 100-400L blew it away.

Nothing on the Polish forum indicates that the new lens is from Tamron.
Were is the info that it is Tamron?

Other than the Macro lenses (60mm, 90mm, 180mm) I do not think Tamron produces any Prime at all (at least not for Crop or Full Frame DSLRs). seems they want to concentrate only on the zoom side.....
Need to learn a lot more.

Got an info from a reliable Tamron retailer that it will be 150-600 VC and it could be available perhaps already this year.

Yep, whoever said the 200-500 w/ VC is probably correct. Here's the current one overlaid; there's basically an extra inch or two on the new lens, with a big hump near the mount.



Considering Tamron's lineup, I imagine they would consider a $1500-2000 lens pretty serious
