The newest Tamron 17-50 VC is here:

7.95cm x 9.40cm and 570g.

I'd call half a centimeter and 30 grams a wash.

Is it still the first gen VC 17-50mm or there is a newest incarnation of the classic lens?


As far as I know, there are three Tamron 17-50s:

1. The original without built-in motor

2. Built-in motor version without VC

3. Built-in motor version with VC

I linked to the Canon version of (3) as I was comparing to a Canon 24-70/4 IS.
