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.
