The new Tamron 70-180mm f/2.8 FE will start shipping out in late Spring and price will make “everybody happy”


Marc Morris from Tamron shared some tidbits about the new Tamron 70-180mm f/2.8 FE lens:

  • weather sealed
  • super fast AF
  • very low price (SAR note: I bet it’s nearly half the price of the Sony GM 70-200)
  • shipment start in late Spring

Here is the interview:

I also heard from one of my sources that:

  • Lens MTF at f/2.8 shows that at least at 70mm and 180mm the lens is sharper than the Sony GM 70-200
  • VXD motor is incredibly fast and is able to focus across its focusing range almost instantly

And this is the size comparison with the Sony GM 70-200:

Can’t wait to buy this one!
