Thinking about Minolta 28-70 F2.8 G, went with TAMRON SP 28-75mm F/2.8 XR Di LD

will the 24-70 it ever appear for Sony?

Tamron's 24-70 f/2.8 is not yet available (except for pre-order).

This situation has lasted 3/4 of a year already.

(And IF it ever materializes, it won't have VC in the A-mount version; just FYI)


Wrote Tamron a week or so ago asking when it would be available and if it will support AF-D.  Here's what they said.

"Thanks for contacting Tamron! Unfortunately at this time we do not have a release date for the Sony mount of that lens; we are still waiting on shipment from Japan. As soon as we receive the lenses we will ship them to stores, but at this time we do not know specifically when that will be. As the lens has not yet been released, we do not have specific feature information available for Sony cameras. Sorry for the delay, and have a great day!"
