It's too bad that lenses from Tamron/Sigma/Tokina don't come with a part that is easily swapped around to convert the lens from being a Canon mount to Nikon mount to Sony mount...

No mnention of their new USD (ultrasonic) motor then? This is the biggest flaw of the existing design and one of the reasons why I traded mine in for the Canon version.  Shame really, because the Tamron was optically superb, especially at the shorter end.  I hope they don't ruin the optics with their VC implementation like they did with the 17-50mm.

It's a patent on optical design, not a product announcement.

If this lens is produced it will almost certainly feature a USD motor.  It must, to compete with Canon Nikon and Sigma.

Great, can't wait to see how this turns out.  I had the Tamron 17-50 VC, but sold it because the focus motor was just too slow.   If they do make a product out of this patent, I sure hope it has the new USD motor.   I see no reason why they would not put it in.
