Is Tamron About to Announce a 70-180mm f/2.8 Lens for Sony Full-Frame Cameras?

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.

Tamron Announce Two New Feature Rich Premium Primes

 Gear, News  Comments Off on Tamron Announce Two New Feature Rich Premium Primes
Sep 092015
 

Tamron are known for their affordably priced, feature rich zoom lenses. The 17-50mm f/2.8 VC (Vibration Control) and 24-70mm f/2.8 VC are popular budget choice lenses for video shooters using APS-C and full frame cameras respectively. The latter a particularly interesting number as there is no other direct replacement for it (both Canon, Nikon and Sigma standard zoom lenses offer Image Stabilization or a fast f/2.8 aperture, not both).

Whilst Tamron has offered much in certain departments it has lacked in others. Build quality has always been a downside when comparing to other lenses, and short focus throws make them tough for video shooters. The new SP (Super Performance) prime pair look to make some changes, offering up a first for Tamron in the high quality fixed focal length sector (ignoring their current macro lenses).
