What’s coming
Received an email saying to expect 1, maybe 2 lenses from Tamron.

The two possible lenses:

  • 24-75 f/2.8 VC
  • 70-200 f/2.8 VC

When Tamron wants to do a lens right, they can really pull it off. I’ve owned the 28-75 f/2.8 and 17-50 f/2.8. For the money, those lenses were hard to beat.

I hope Tamron stops with the superzooms, I fear an 18-400 f/3.5-8.0 VC or something along those lines. There are a lot of hobbyists on a budget, and would love more lenses like the ones mentioned above.

Sigma, Tokina and Tamron could both become big players in the lens market if they improve quality control and release lenses we ask for. With the DSLR market exploding, there’s so much money to be made.
