AFAIK Tamron/Sigma do sell tons of 24-whatevers and 70-200, just like Canon does. You are correct that there is no point in Tamron/Sigma offering an 18-55.
Yes indeed; that's why I said "focus on price and filling in...". They sell the 24-whatevers and 70-200s for cheaper than Canon's, for people who can't afford those or choose not to.

I don't know if my previous post was unclear or people are just trying to nitpick.

Maybe both.

I like that Tamron is finally introducing a fast f/1.4 prime. It was always questionable to me why they didn't have a lens faster than f/1.8 and then claimed image stabilization made up for the reduced light gathering ability.
+1

Now perhaps now they will make an SP 50mm f/1.4.
That will then be an SP 45 f/1.4 if they are going to be consistent to their line
As the OP stated, this new 35mm will be Tamron's first lens faster than f/1.8, so being consistent is hardly the point.

Canon, Nikon and Sigma all have 35mm and 50mm lenses with f/1.4 apertures.

Since Tamron is now catching up aperture-wise with their new 35mm, it would be nice if they took the next step and also caught up focal length-wise by releasing a 50mm f/1.4.

I was thinking if Tamron/Sigma/Tamron/Irix/etc can develop a say 50-135mm f/1,8 or 85-135mm f/1,4 :love:

The choice of focal lengths is strange, I'm one who would like to see a 21-85 f/4 zoom for full frame. For years, Canon put in their 28-105mm kit lens packaged with Canon 40D's it was really a strange focal length for a crop. I bought several 40D kits, and immediately resold the lens for a profit.

For FF, the 28-105 was OK but far from great. Zooms that change aperture values when zoomed in are doing just the opposite of what is needed, I usually want more light at higher focal lengths because I'm using a faster shutter speed.

the 35-150 choice is meant to complement their 17-35 2.8-4 without overlap
the 17-35 is around 600€ and maybe this new one will be about the same which means you can get from 17 to 150 for a bit more than the price of a canon 24-105

I'm really glad that Tamron has introduced two new lenses for FullFrame DSLRs. But they could introduce some fixed maximum apeture lenses for APS-C cameras as well. Something like a 10-20mm f/2.8 Di II VC USD (instead of 16-35mm), a 20-50mm f/2.8 Di II VC USD (instead of 24-70mm) and a 50-120mm f/2.8 Di II VC USD (instead of the 70-200mm) lineup for those who don't want or can't allow to use FullFrame lenses and cameras. :)
