A new Supertelephoto Zoom?

This is definitely a lens that Tamron would make. If you need length and you’re on a budget, this could be a one of a kind option if and when it comes to market.

Patent Publication No. 2012-208434

  • Release Date 2012.10.25
  • Filing date 2011.3.30

Just remember that patents don't always turn exactly into products. This could, in theory end up being an alternative to the Sigma 150-500, for example.

Which itself is already an alternative to the better Bigma (50-500 OS).

Which itself is again an alternative to the equally good Tamron 200-500mm. (If you're on a Sony and have IBIS)
