I read about it this morning. Tamronalways takes it's sweet time in bringing lenses to market after they've been announced, so don't hold your breath.

Case in point: Where is the 10-24 f/3.5-4.5?

Touche! :smile:

I am not sure they will cut significantly into the Nikkor 18-200VR sales given its declining price. This introduction would have probably made more sense one year ago with the Nikkor at $750 and the long waiting time to get one..... Just my opinion, though.

This would make the ultimate travel lens couple with the D40-D60,

If the optics is just as good as the 18-200 VR... or even better...

You just can't beat that combo for light travel PERIOD.

I think it is pretty tiny compared to the 150-500.
