The new Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD lens now has official pricing, and comes in at $1069 (a slight price hike of $120 over the 200-500mm lens it is replacing). The lens is available for pre-order in Canon, Nikon and Sony mounts and is expected to be available on January 17, 2014. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
Tamron’s new new 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DI VC USD lens that is set to replace the current 200-500mm version will be available in the US on January 17, 2014. Tamron still hasn’t released pricing on the new lens; however, I would expect it to come in higher than the $949 street price of the existing 200-500mm lens.
Tamron offers a little more detail into the build of the lens with its latest press release.
Employing 20 elements in 13 groups and boasting an advanced optical design, the lens delivers a superior balance of resolution and contrast for sharp, clear images. The front group contains three LD (Low Dispersion) glass elements (two in the first group, one in the third) for enhanced optical correction effectiveness, enabling the lens to thoroughly compensate for on-axis aberrations at the telephoto end. The lens also adopts eBAND Coating, developed from state-of-the-art coating technologies, and conventional BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating to greatly suppress ghosting and flare even when shooting under adverse lighting conditions.
The new 150-600mm lens is already listed at B&H Photo for Canon, Nikon and Sony mounts; however, as noted above, there is no pricing info as of yet.
Tamron has announced a new superzoom lens for Micro Four Thirds cameras. The new 14-150mm F/3.5-5.8 Di III VC lens offers a 28-300mm equivalent zoom range on Micro Four Thirds cameras and features built-in Vibration Compensation.
No word yet on pricing or availability; however, as with most new product announcements this week, availability this Spring would be a good estimation. We’ll have more as soon as Tamron makes it available.
Tamron has put a price tag and availability date on its new 90mm Macro and 70-200mm zoom lenses.
The Tamron 90mm f/2.8 DI VC Macro lens will be available in Canon mount starting November 30 for $849. Nikon and Sony mounts to follow thereafter. Pre-order options are at the links below.
- Tamron 90mm f/2.8 DI VC (Canon mount)
- Tamron 90mm f/2.8 DI VC (Nikon mount)
- Tamron 90mm f/2.8 DI VC (Sony mount)
Likewise, the Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 DI VC lens will also be available on November 30 for $1499 with Nikon and Sony versions to follow. Pre-order options are at the links below.
Tamron has filed a patent for a 150-600mm f/5-6.3 lens, which would presumably feature Tamron’s Vibration Compensation. The big telephoto zoom lens would be the longest reaching zoom lens in Tamron’s lineup if/when it is released – taking the title from the current sub-$1000 Tamron 200-500mm f/5-6.3, which it would likely replace.
Sigma has a similar lens with its 150-500mm f/5-6.3 OS model priced at just over $1000, which should give us an idea of the price range we might see the Tamron at if to comes to life. Given that it’s a new model and the extended reach, I’d put the price range somewhere between $1200-$1400 if I were betting on it.

The Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di VC USD lens is a new 1:1 macro lens that will be available for Canon, Nikon and Sony Alpha mount cameras later this year.
As with the new Tamron 70-200mm lens announced today, the Canon and Nikon mount version of this 90mm macro lens will features Tamron’s Vibration Compensation, while the Sony model will not due to the presence of Sony’s sensor-based SteadyShot image stabilization system. As such, the Sony models is designated as the Tamron SP SP 90mm F/2.8 Di USD.
Pricing for the new lens has not yet been announced. I would expect this lens to be priced in the $1000 range. The current non-VC Tamron 90mm macro lens retails for $499 at present.
