A very interesting (and really exciting if you ask me), rumor cropped up earlier today. It appears that tomorrow, Tamron will be unveiling a new full frame lens in the 15-30mm range with an aperture of F/2.8.


No pictures or detailed specs have leaked yet, but this is still a pretty big release for Tamron, who has seemed to focus on the low-to-mid range consumer gear lately. If the image quality holds up and the price is right, I could see a 15-30mm F/2.8 being a really popular lens for pros and high end hobbyists alike.

If its quality can come even close to the Nikon 14-24mm at a fraction of the cost, it would make this lens a good alternative for shooters wanting that “holy trinity” on a budget. I was wondering what Tamron would have up their sleeves for Photokina. If this holds true, this is a nice announcement for them.

Stay tuned…
