I purchased my Tamron from the Amazon Warehouse and sent it in to Tamron. I had also noticed that the AF was slower than the Sony 18200LE which is also manufactured by Tamron.

It turns out that Tamron's warranty does not cover "open box" lenses and they wanted a $225 service fee. I spoke to the head of service at Tamron and she told me she was not aware of a firmware update for the lens. Even if there were a firmware update, according to Tamron, such is considered a repair. Needless to say, I had them return the lens to me and will never purchase a Tamron lens again.
