As I read Nikon’s announcement of the new Nikon 1 V3 last night, I glanced over the pricing info and caught $999.95 in there. I was digging through the specs and figured that was a body-only price of the V3 since the kit was $1200. But that assumption was wrong.
Canon applied for a patent on a 70-300mm f/4-5.6 lens in March 2011. Presumably, this is an update to the consumer grade line of 75-300mm non-stabilized lenses. [Read more…]
Tamron has announced the development of a new 70-300mm F4-5.6 Di VC USD for Nikon, Canon and Sony mounts. The new lens is the first from Tamron to incorporate Ultrasonic Silent Drive AF motor for faster autofocus. Additionally, the lens will include Tamron’s Vibration Compensation (except for Sony mount) to reduce shake-induced blur in images.
Tamron will release the Nikon mount version first, and then follow on with Canon and Sony versions. Tamron has not announced a price for the lens at this time; however, it matches up squarely against the Nikon AF-S 70-300mm f/4-5.6 VR and the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM, both of which are in the $500 range.
