Preview of Tamron 70-180

Based on these images, it looks like it is roughly 25% longer and 25% wider than the inarguably compact and light 28-75. That is significantly more compact (in the unextended state) than a GM. It also would be a reasonable approximation (assuming it is just as densely full of glass as its normal range sibling) to assume it 1.25^3 times the weight (roughly twice the weight) which at around 1 kg will come out to 1/3rd less weight than a GM. Anyone prefer to not carry around and extra 500g all day long? (Count me in, where do I preorder)

(cue the selection bias debates)
