    Maybe they can get started on a 14-70 F4.

    I've read about it elsewhere, and would like to see how it will be priced, but I believe they have delayed the launch date.

    Yeah I think I heard about this a while back... maybe at the start of the year or something.

    I'm very interested to see pricing on this. The only Tamron lens I've owned was the 17-50 f/2.8 for Canon, and it managed to be more than half the price of the Canon 17-55 f/2.8. The autofocus was fast, but noisy, though that didn't really bother me so I loved that lens.

    If they can manage to make this half the price of the Olympus I may bite.

    I think Tamron announced that a year ago, and hasn't shown anything since. Maybe the fact that it's on B&H means it might actually be available before I retire in a couple of years.

    Sent from my Sprint Galaxy S3. Please forgive any typos or auto-correct errors.

    About a month ago, I emailed Tamron about the release date for this lens and they don't have one.

    Yes which makes me wonder if Tamron has just given up on release...

    That's a shame because Tamron have a good reputation and I expectet this lens would be a good all round zoom with good IQ and a nice FL :(
