Tamron 18-300 availability update (Australia)
3

Just a bit of info that might be useful to anyone thinking of buying Tamron 18-300.

I ordered one from George's Cameras in Sydney (one of the country's oldest dealers now) on 20th December. They were offering it for $890 (about US$644) - a very good price and it is now listed on their website for more than that.

I have been following-up on the order regularly and have just received the first 'official' advice from George's. Tamron tells them production and stock is low globally (no real surprise) and George's will not be getting any until mid-February at the earliest. A sales person also warned me on the phone last week that Tamron has not been supplying full orders recently and I should not necessarily expect my lens to be in the next batch.

None of this is surprising, though of course it is disappointing. Also a bit frustrating, with money tied up in the order I could be using elsewhere. At this stage I will leave it in place though, particularly given the price increase, and see how it plays out next month.
