Tamron is coming up with something new! Let’s speculate…they will release a MicroFourThirds lens? :)


Our friends from photorumors.com just discovered this nice countdown at tamron.de. Are they making a countdown for a new Canon-Nikon-Sony-Pentax lens? This would be boring normal. Let’s hope that this time they are going to make something for us! MicroFourThirds lenses? :)

It is not a rumor, just my personal wish! Come on Tamron! I know you can make my 25mm f/1.4 lens ;)

    maybe tamron will make their own camera, with the LCD and sensor as one inseparable unit that’s not a rumor, just a twisted joke…

    seriously tamron is almost owned by sony, and they never had anything to do with 4/3 or m4/3, so a m4/3 lens from them is unlikely.

    That would be nice if they just made m4/3 and 4/3 lenses or even Tonika. The standard needs more good quality budget glass.

  • Mel

    They’re going to be the company to buy Pentax.

    And the merged company will be renamed Tampax.

    @ Andrew
    A µFT version of the Tokina AT-X 16.5-135/3.5-5.6 would make a nice entry-level travel zoom.

    There is a tiny sentence under countdown timer. O_Q

    Tamron AF18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 XR Di-II LD Aspherical (IF) Macro costs less than £200 for APS-C cameras. On m43 that would be 36-400mm, and should be around £300-£500 cheaper than either of the big zooms currently on offer.
    I know a lot of people are sniffy about the image quality of big zooms and would rather have fast primes & fast short zooms, but there must be others like me, who bought m43 with travel in mind and want one lens that does everything and accept that it wont necessarily do any of it at top quality.

    So I hope they convert that one.

    And I am quite amused by Mel’s inspired speculation!

    This is a Glorious Day for Micro 4/3 System.
