Remember when Tamron announced they were making a new 70-200mm f2.8, one with VC and which purportedly will be to the same stellar quality as their unexpected 24-70mm f2.8 VC gem? Well, Tamron has reached out to me just now and let me know that they have pricing and availability for that lens and their new 90mm macro VC as well. Both lenses are slated to come out the 30th this month (give or take) in Canon mount, and you’ll see them for Nikon 30 days later. No word yet on if they’ll support Sony or other mounts with this lens. The price on the 70-200mm will be a very friendly $1,499, and the macro will be $849.
Again, I am myself an owner of the new 24-70mm VC from Tamron, and have bee very pleased with its performance, so I’m very keen to see how this new lens performs. Especially since it comes in between 600-800 clams cheaper than the big boys.
