Pre-Order on the new Tamron 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD?
« on: April 26, 2012, 06:16:18 PM »
I just got an email from Adorama advertising Pre-Orders on the new Tamron lens!

$1,299

Who's getting one? 

Also, has anyone see any early reviews?  If so, please post links!

I'm may be interested in one if a few reputable reviews are favorable, but I'm not interested enough to buy one and hope for the best. The AF has to be better than what they've offered up to now for me to buy it.

I'd wait for reviews on 3rd party lenses. I'm hoping that this is an awesome lens though because a 24-70mm F/2.8 with stabilization has been my dream for a while. I could get rid of a couple lenses if this Tamron brings decent quality.

Here's an AF-comparison between the Tamron, Canon, Sigma and Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8

24-70mm f2.8 Showdown! 2 - FOCUS Small | Large


Not a very significant test, but it does conclude with it being slower than the Canon and Nikon, and fast than the Sigma. I want it to be accurate, though.
