The new Tamron 70-180mm F/2.8 Di III VXD (Model A056) lens will be available for pre-order from May 14th, 2020. The new high-speed telephoto zoom lens for Sony E-mount full-frame E-mount cameras will be priced at $1,199. Check availability at Adorama and B&H.
Tamron also has three compact F2.8 prime lenses for Sony E-mount full-frame mirrorless cameras. These ‘Di III OSD M1:2’ lenses come in three focal lengths: a 20mm f/2.8 Di III OSD M1:2, 24mm f/2.8 Di III OSD M1:2, and 35mm f/2.8 Di III OSD M1:2 lens.
Tamron 70-180mm f/2.8 FE Lens price will be less than half of the Sony 70-200mm F2.8 GM lens. Moreover it weights only 815g, much lighter than the 1480g from Sony. Just the killer!
