Tamron has announced a new 70-200mm f/2.8 lens. The new lens will be available for Canon, Nikon and Sony Alpha mounts later this year.
The Canon and Nikon mount version of the 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 70-200mm F/2.8 Di USD lens.
Pricing for the new lens has not yet been announced. However, I would expect this lens to be priced in the $1500-$2000 range. The current non-VC version is quite the bargain at $769 right now.
