Rumors are circulating that Tamron is about to announce the launch of a lens that would complete its trio of fast zooms for Sony full-frame cameras with the 70-180mm f/2.8 lens. Will it be tiny, how much will it cost, and how will it stack up against Tamron’s two other amazing Sony f/2.8 zooms?
Sony Alpha Rumors is confidently reporting that the announcement will come from Tamron next month, and it would be very much in line with expectations. A few weeks ago, Tamron teased four new lenses, and a longer zoom would make their range of fast zooms for Sony complete. In keeping with the 17-28mm and the 28-75mm, Tamron seems intent on compromising on focal range rather than quality in order to keep size and cost down.
