The new Tamron 70-210mm f/4 Di VC USD lens was announced this week for both Canon EF and Nikon F full frame mounts. The new lens retails for $799 and features Tamron’s Vibration Compensation for 4+ stops of shake correction. The lens has a 9-blade diaphragm and a minimum focusing distance of 3.1′ along with a 1:3.1 maximum magnification. An optional tripod collar is also available, which features an Arca-type compatible foot. The lens is also compatible with Tamron’s existing 1.4x and 2x teleconverters.
The Tamron 70-210mm f/4 Di VC USD lens will ship in April for $799. You can pre-order it here at B&H Photo.

The one thing I love about Sony cameras is the flexibility the cameras offer and how open Sony is to third-party lenses and accessories.

B&H has the original Canon 6D for $999, which is less than half the price it was when originally released. This is a new low bar for entry into the Canon full frame realm.
