Doesn't look like the lens from teaser.

Crazy. We were just discussing if there would ever be a 3rd party option of the f/4 variants. Boom. Now, will this lens have G2 goodies? Because the 2.8 G2 is the giant killer for an amazing price.

That would be "weak" indeed!

I’m sure it’s a great lens, but for any Rebel owner Tamron is competing with the 55-250STM, which as far as I can tell is about as sharp as the push/pull Canon 100-400 on Full Frame (at equivalent FOV), and it’s as light as a feather, and costs less than $200.
This thing needs excelent AF, a good 4 stops worth of practical stabilization and center sharpness out the wazoo if it’s going to be perceived as a good value.

If there’s one thing Canon has done right it’s their budget EF-S lenses (55-250STM, 24mm Pancake, 10-18STM).

I believe this Tamron 70-210mm is not intended for users of Rebel cameras, but users of 5D Mark ii, 6D, and other full-frame low-cost.

In fact EF-S 55-250mm STM is a rare jewel, and probably the new Tamron will not outperform it in terms of image quality when mounted on APS-C cameras.

Yeah, this would be to compete with 70-200/f4 L IS.

Depending on its price and performance, I suppose it could be interesting.  However, 70-200 is such a critical lens for so many people, and both the Canon f/4 and f/2.8 are such great lenses that I think it's a tough sell, as folks tend to be more price insensitive on the lens that are core to their task.

The problem is that the Canon lens is only about a thousand bucks, and I doubt the Tamron is going to be half that.  Plus, the 2.8 now has some fierce sales, and many copies are available used, so there's competitive pressure from that front too.

I'm hoping it is compatible with the docking station... I think (hope) that all future Tamron and Sigma lenses should be "dockable" to receive updates.... that more or less eliminates the feat of incompatibilities with future bodies and is a great marketing point.....

210 is interesting, I guess... If this is SIGNIFICANTLY less weight and price, it could be a great lens for a 2nd kit.  Anything over $750 and I'd go with the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM instead. 

Have the SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD (G1) and it's a great lens.  A little on the heavier side, but that's expected.  Biggest issue with this lens (and all 3rd party) is with video usage on 5D4 and not getting built in lens corrections.  It's problematic for vingetting and especially noticeable on full frame.  Waiting for the Canon 24-70 with IS (for YEARS) and will likely switch over if I'm still on EF & EF-S at that point.

I am also interested in this lens. Something higher quality than the 70-300 (any manufacturer), but less expensive than the 70-200 F2.8 options.

I will be replacing most, if not all pieces of my camera kit at the end of April, when I will be in Cologne, Germany. They have many good quality 2nd hand stores for photography equipment, as well as new of course.

So far my plan seems to be this:

- 1D mark II - upgrade to used 6D
- Tamron 28-75 F2.8 - get my current copy of this lens serviced and see how it performs on the 6D, and if I will be happy with it.
- Keep my Canon 50mm F1.4 USM, see how it works with the 6D.
- Look for other lenses to use with the 6D.

I think the Tamron would have faster AF against the STM lens. That's a big deal at these focal lengths.

I'm on the fence over a waiting for a nw non L 85 and 135 L whatever IS or not and some new 70-200 variant but not anything heavy. I am in the heavy bag, light camera camp. It's called the waiting game at this point.

I always wondered this too.

I suspect this will be quite aggressively priced. Perhaps as low as $600, with the tripod collar an optional accessory (probably going to be the same collar as the 100-400 for extra synergy).

Seriously what is this crap. Why  even makes lens like this.  and what is the 10 extra MM suppsoed to do.  companies need to focus on  making lens sharper, smaller,  and better in low light and introduce ranges that arent around.
