Actually 6 years

OUCH!  I think Tamron is leaving money on the table not making lens for

  • Canon EOS-M and 
  • Fuji X-mounts

Not everyone care to upgrade to Fullframe, majority of "consumer" don't want to spend $2000 when an $500~$1000 APS-C DSLR or Mirrorless will do.  It nice to see that both Sigma & Viltrox has wise up to EOS-M and Fuji now.  But Sigma & Viltrox are really good @making PRIMES and less good at making complex zoom lens.  Zoom lens is where Tarmon really excel.

I wish Tamron would wise up soon.

This Tamron 17-70/2.8 + Tamron 70-180/2.8 could make a KILLER COMBO yet retain a relatively tiny size
