Tamron Lens Phenomenon Update
« on: December 21, 2010, 09:06:23 AM »
First reports of repaired lenses. The first set of Tamron owners have received lenses back from Tamron correcting the cross-type sensor issue with certain Canon DSLR bodies.

The 17-50 f/2.8 VC was sent in and Tamron’s official statement for the fix was “autofocus adjustment”. This is a bit deceptive, what actually was done was a lens ID change from 37 to 137 (85 f/1.2L II lens ID).

Tamron Japan has not officially admitted that there is an issue. Perhaps this is being done to avoid a mass recall of lenses.

Cost of repair? For the moment, the lens ID switch is covered under the standard warranty. No word on out of warranty products yet.

That is odd, I wonder why they did not use the lens ID of the EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 for the 17-50 f/2.8 VC?
