| p.9 #10 · Tamron announces 150-600mm Ultra-Telephoto Zoom Lens |
Color me skeptical, but I think it will come in at least $2,500-$3,000. Nothing to base that on other than the thought that Tamron must know that a lens of this FL range with modest aperture and image stabilization will have huge demand. The Canikon alternatives to reach 500mm and beyond are no less than $5,000 for stabilized, older, used models. So, why offer so much in return for so little? At $1,500, they'd be leaving a lot of money on the table. A nikon 80-400 is what, $2,600-$2,700? Following Canon's recent pricing, a new 100-400L would seemingly fall in that range as well. It's those buyers that I'd be targeting, and they'll still sell plenty to pros and amateurs who would like a zoom to complement their prime superteles.
Just my opinion
