Since we're speculating here… if Tamron is indeed halting production to fix an AF issue, I wonder if the "fix" will be available for those of us who own the original lens. Will it fall into the 6-year warranty?


Good question.

Some shops in Perth Western Australia had shipments a couple of days ago. I got one and can confirm that the AI Servo non response issue from one extreme to another is still there.

I love the lens though my next biggest is a 70-300L with a TC and that's far worse in AI Servo.

Will you keep it or return it?

Karl, I don't wear a uniform, so not sure what your point is.

My comment said *generally*. Note that an exception to this made a major news story, because this behavior is so rare in Japan.

What does automobile companies having cover-up stories have to do with my comment on Tamron?

Sorry you are so unhappy with your Tamron and glad you returned it. I have no relationship with Tamron, why would you think I could fix your lens? Especially since you already returned it?

Have a nice day.

For me it's all about the AF for BIF. I have plenty of lenses with excellent IQ, but if it can't track, then it doesn't matter how good it is optically.

I'm in no rush, so I'll wait and see what comes of the whole issue. I am certainly hoping any issues are resolved as this lens has huge appeal.

I'm definitely keeping mine.

I didn't expect spectacular AF on a 6.3 lens and I've similar hunting issues with my 70-300L at times. I love the extra reach and flexibility.

My shots so far have at least met my expectations and its focusing accuracy and consistency at either end of the zoom seems better than my 70-300L.

A few missed shots and a bit of working around...I can live with that.

A pleasant surprise, Adorama is shipping my order today.
I'm aiming to use the lens more often with the 5DMK3 rather than my 7D--the image quality is so much better and the handling of the camera more enjoyable. So if Ai Servo is semi-functional on the 7D I think I can live with it--but double shame on Tamron for not performing comprehensive testing on a very popular camera body and then not coming clean about these issues as user consistencies are being reported.
Even if the 7D Mark 2 came out tomorrow and I purchased it, I would want the Tamron lens to work right for the next owner of my 7D.
What a great opportunity for a competing lens maker.

Did they say if an open box return ? New shipment ?
I see you have a 5 D III - not the 7D I have .
Post some shots on your site .

Called BH yesterday about my pending "pre-order". Pleasant but uninformative response. Unaware when they will receive more copies, unaware of significant returns.
Who knows?

As far I know, they cannot ship an Open Box item (By Law) to me. This should be a new Lens from Tamron.

My Discussion with the rep today:

Rep: How can I help you today?
Me: I received an email that package shipped today
Me: In my earlier discussion with a rep... he gave me date of 30th april for delivery
Me: was curious... am I receiving a new item? or is it a returned item?
Rep: we have just received more stock as of today, this is a brand new item
Me: ok thanks for confirming
Rep: Is there anything else I can help you with today?


I have both 5D3 and 7D (I purchased to use with this lens). Some shots are here on my backup page.
