Finally the perfect wide zoom lens i am looking for and ofcourse again not for Sony A-mount

The Tamron SP 15-30/2.8 is a bit havy and bulky and i don’t need a constant 2.8 so this would have been the perfect alternative for me but like all interesting stuff again not for Sony A-mount .

I am convinced the Tamron will be a nice quality lens like all the rest the produce lately .

So please Tamron .... MAKE THIS LENS FOR A-MOUNT USERS TOO !!!!

An important reason why Tamron and other 3rd party lens makers are ignoring the A-mount is that the A-mount is now the only mount which still uses mechanical spring and lever aperture control. That's another reason why Sony must update the A-mount.

I'm puzzled why Sony, the great technical innovator who's put so much effort into developing new electronic & digital technology to replace the old mechanical clockwork of the SLR, hasn't yet updated the A-mount to include electronic aperture control. I'm hoping it's because they're planning to include it with another more difficult A-mount upgrade.
