Tamron Teases a New Lens Ahead of CP+
« on: February 14, 2018, 02:18:36 AM »
*Update* I am apparently blind and didn’t see the ring at the top of the lens, this is definitely a zoom. I’d like to think Tamron wouldn’t tease an APS-C superzoom, but……

Not to be outdone by Sigma’s recent 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art series lens announcement, it looks like Tamron has a new prime in store for us. Photo Rumors found the first teaser for the lens.

Tamron tends to make similar focal length primes as Sigma, but they’re usually a bit slower.

Could this be a 100mm f/2 VC or a 135mm f/2 VC? Or like a few people on the forum think, it could be a zoom. Hopefully it’s something for full frame DSLRs.

Sound off in the forum on what you hope this new Tamron is.

I am just hoping for a new macro either a 60mm or 180mm from either of those two 3rd party manufacturers.

the base of the lens looks similar to the 18-200 for mirrorless and also i think i can see 2 rubber rings there, so i'm guessing a new zoom

Yeah, looks like a zoom. Two rings and an indent where the barrel telescopes.

The design language is even more simplistic than Tamron's recent Di/Di II (FF/crop) lenses. Instead, the profile bears a strong resemblance to the 18-200mm Di III VC. So my educated guess is a mirrorless zoom. Hopefully not a slow superzoom this time but something more interesting. The dimensions seem wrong for an f/2.8 standard zoom, unfortunately. Perhaps a tele zoom?

I think you're on to something. Either an update to the 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD or a 24-70/4 would be my guess.

I think we'll be seeing more mirrorless lenses from sigma and tamron now the cats out of the bag about the major players (upcoming) mounts (they probably know a bit more than the rumour mill online). E-mount is known, eos-m is probably a given and Nikon patented their z-mount with an even shorter flange distance. No surprises anymore. So it's safe to release some mirrorless lenses in the coming year and offer canon/nikon versions when their mirrorless cams are officially released.

yet sigma didn't release any EF-M lenses and tamron only has one. admitedly, tamron only has one MFT lens too...

i still wish sigma would make the DN lenses for EF-M as well...and i never miss a chance to complain about this :D

I would love a 100mm f2 with image stabilization; 135 is just too long for me, but 100mm is the sweet spot and currently there's no stabilized solution at f2.

Hm? I meant that this looks like a Di III (mirrorless APS-C) lens, not a full-frame one. The long "neck" leading to the mount also implies mirrorless. And mirrorless as of now implies APS-C or m4/3, Sony a7/a9 series notwithstanding.

have you actually seen the teaser photo? you could fit 3 small outstanding 50mm lenses in the outline of that..

+1 to this, 100 mm is such a versatile focal length, but given that Tamron have introduced the 85/1.8 I'd imagine that they wouldn't begin their new prime series by having two such similar focal lengths - unfortunately. Incidentally I've joined you as a Tamron 45 VC owner. Pleased ( and relieved) at the accuracy of the AF. Temps me to the 85. I'd definitely be on a 100/2 VC

Yes please! A new 180mm Macro would be a welcome addition.

Glad to see Tamron and Sigma are giving Nikon and Canon some competition  It will be good for us, the consumer
