RUMOR: The six new Tamron FE lenses will all be unveiled in 2020. None of them is likely to be a fast prime

The recent Tamron teaser  image for the now announced four new FE lenses

A  source just told me this:

Just wanted to confirm and qualify the 6 lens rumor from Tamron. The quote I got was “I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw 6 new lenses by the end of next year.” I don’t know if that includes the 20 and 70-180 since the Tamron manager I spoke with at PhotoPlus sad “by the end of next year.”

He also revealed that they have absolutely no plans on making fast primes any time soon, but that they will “probably get to them eventually.” Not on the roadmap, so no one should get their hopes up in that regard.

SAR note: I guess that some of the new lenses might be unveiled in 2020 but available in 2021 only. And yes, priority will be new zooms like  for example a  new 150-600mm FE?

Tamron 24mm  f/2.8 at Adorama, FocusCamera and BHphoto.
Tamron 35mm  f/2.8 at Adorama, FocusCamera and BHphoto.

Now that’s cool: Sigma also patented a new 50mm f/1.2 FE lens design!


The Sigma 35mm f/1.2 FE is the fastest autofocus E-mount lens yet

There is a new Sigma patent that will make you jump pf the chair  :)

It describes the design of three f/1.2 fast 50mm,  40mm and 35mm primes for Full frame mirrorless camera. Now, we already got the 35mm f/1.2 so I am pretty confident that we will also get this new 50mm f/1.2.
The third design describes the 40mm f/1.2 but I am unsure if this one will be made for real.

Here is the 50mm f/1.2 lens design with specs:

Focal length: 50.99 mm
F no: 1.25
2ω : 45.97
Image height: 21.63 mm
Lens length: 154.20 mm

Here is the 40mm f/1.2 lens design with specs:


Focal length: 41.35 mm
F no: 1.26
2ω : 57.17
Image height: 21.63 mm
Lens length: 157.00 mm

Compared to the current Sigma 35mm f/1.2 FE  lens this new 50mm FE would be nearly 2cm longer. Quite a beast!
