Any chance/rumors of Sigma/Tamron making a high quality f/4 walkaround zoom?
Jan 8, 2013

I've owned Canon and Nikon, and their 24-105mm f/4 and 24-120mm f/4 lenses are very popular.  I'm wondering if anyone has heard any plans for 3rd party lens makers to develop a lens that would compete with these?  This is my favorite type of lens, but I'd rather not drop $1000 if at all possible (I'm with Nikon now)... It would be fantastic if say, Tamron make a 24-120mm f/4 VC lens for say $700-800.... thanks all.
