Some good AND some bad news...

Good:

It appears Amazon is now finally selling the Tamron 24-70 in Sony A-mount. The line saying 'this item is not yet available' is gone per today.

Bad:

As we know, Tamron decided not to offer it's VC technique with the A-mount version of this lens, since Sony has it's in-body stabilisation. So does that mean the lens is lighter, simpler and hence cheaper? Apparently the expected lower numbers to be sold to Sony users are responsible for quite the opposite effect...

Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 in Canon mount: 888,- € (1175 $)

Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 in Nikon mount: 874,29 € (1157 $)

Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 in Sony A-mount: 1492,82 € (1975,36 $)

For me, for now, a big bummer, to say the least...

Hi Bart:

I did a search on Amazon, but could not find that lens.  Where did you see it?
