Where’s the Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 VC G2?

Where’s the Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 VC G2?

By Canon Rumors | June 23, 2017 | Third Party Lenses

A couple of sources we talked to in the know claimed the Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 VC G2 was coming this week, are confused as to why it wasn’t announced alongside the 18-400mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD (Model B028). We even received product links from a couple of retailers for the lens.

Perhaps Tamron feels it will fit nicely alongside the announcement of the Canon EOS 6D Mark II next week?

The lens is coming and pricing will be $1199 USD.

Tamron Announces 18-400mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD

Tamron Announces 18-400mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD

By Canon Rumors | June 23, 2017 | Third Party Lenses

Dramatic extended range achieved by combining cutting-edge optical design and other new breakthrough technologies including a redesigned cam structure

18-400mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD (Model B028)
June 23, 2017, Commack, NY – Tamron, a leading manufacturer of optics for diverse applications, announces the launch of the new 18-400mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD (Model B028), the world’s first ultra-telephoto all-in-one zoom lens for APS-C DSLR cameras, which covers a focal length range of 18-400mm. Since the 1992 launch of its AF28-200mm F/3.8-5.6 Aspherical (Model 71D), Tamron has dominated the all-in-one zoom category and has produced many lenses that cover wide-angle to telephoto zoom ranges. Tamron has now developed an ultra-telephoto all-in-one zoom that extends to 400mm (35mm equivalent of 620mm) and a 22.2x zoom ratio. Packed in a light, compact body (4.8in./24.9oz.)2 is Tamron’s accumulated knowledge and experience for all-in-one zoom lenses, including the most advanced optical and mechanical designs, an HLD (High/Low torque modulated Drive) for the AF system and the Vibration Compensation system. Photographers can now enjoy wide-angle to ultra-telephoto photography using one lens, which is ideal for travel photography and eliminates the need to carry extra lenses. The new Model B028 lens enables photographing a wide variety of ultra-telephoto images including everyday casual scenes. The 18-400mm will be available in the U.S. at the end of July at $649.

Two Announcement Days From Canon Next Week? [CR2]

Two Announcement Days From Canon Next Week? [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | June 22, 2017 | Canon DSLR Rumors

We’re told that Canon will have product announcements on June 27, 2017 as well as the EOS 6D Mark II and perhaps the EOS Rebel SL2 on June 29, 2017.  Something may have been lost in translation on the announcement dates, but all of the following products will be announced next week.

  • We’re told a “low end” EOS M camera is coming on Tuesday, logic would suggest it’ll be a replacement for the EOS M10.
  • The Canon EOS Rebel SL2, which will have the 24mp APS-C sensor, DIGIC 7 and other evolutionary upgrades over the EOS Rebel SL1. There won’t be anything surprising in this release.
  • The Canon EOS 6D Mark II, which has mostly leaked and is receiving a pretty positive response.

We don’t hear much about PowerShot cameras, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we get at least one announced next week. Don’t hold me to it though.

We still don’t have an announcement date for the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS, but we sure hope it’s soon.

This post may update after further clarification on the announcement day(s).
