Tamron Still Believes in APS-C
9

I'd prefer something wider than 17mm for the 1.61 Canon crop, but I'd take this over adapting the 17-50/55mm if they made it in EF-M: https://www.sonyalpharumors.com/leaked-first-images-of-the-new-tamron-17-70mm-aps-c-e-mount-lens/

Send emails to Tamron if your are interested!

Nice, yes. If only Tamron would release something like this to Canon M. I’d happily grab this and an M6ii to pair with my 11-22 & 55-250.

First we got the sigma 56mm f/1.4, and if this makes it to ef-m the ef-m lens line up is finally achieves a basic completeness.  The only incomplete remaining part would be the body line up: A body with an integrated viewfinder, the 32Mp sensor and IBIS is the other thing needed to make Canon aps-c a complete system.

Like most of the recent Tamron mirrorless lenses, this lens omits optical image stabilization (OIS) and relies solely on in-body image stabilization (IBIS).  With no M bodies featuring IBIS, it is extremely unlikely this lens would ever be repackaged in EF-M mount.

I'm ok with that. IS would be great, but I would jump on this lens if Tamron releases an EF-M version!

Even though you might be OK without any form of stabilization, it is extremely unlikely Tamron will build this lens in EF-M mount.

Tamron has only released one EF-M mount lens and that was way back in 2014.  2014 was also the last year Tamron released a mirrorless lens in something other than Sony E mount.  If you want some fodder for conspiracy theories, consider than Sony owns a 12% share in Tamron.

Well that's a shame. It was the first lens I planned to buy for my M5 mk 2.

A lens that will likely never come to EF-M mount for a camera that is also unlikely to to ever exist.

Why do you think they will eschew OIS and rely on IBIS? Few Sony APS-C cameras have IBIS.

(but) Tamron has been 100% SONY ONLY lately, no other mounts

wow, I really want this Tamron 17-70/2.8 zoom lens.  However, I'd never seen any new Tamron (in the last 3 yrs) release anything mirrorless lens for M43, EOS-M, or FUJI.  When it comes to mirrorless lens, it has been 100% SONY FE only.

I understand there was a rather mediocre superzoom release for EOS-M sometimes ago, it was badly review and no more tamron lens release since then.

Sony has been dragging its feet with its rather lackluster APS-C e-mount too.  If it weren't for Sigma, Viltrox, SamYang, and Tamron keeping it alive, Sony APS-C would have folded long time ago.  I love 3rd party lens, but I'm not a fan of Sony A6xxx range finder design.

I hope Tamron would wise up and start releasing lens for other mirrorless platform.

His statement is incorrect: the lens has "VC", Tamron's name for image stabilization. You can clearly see it in the images.

That doesn't mean we'll ever see it in EF-M land, but I still figured I would share the leak because I believe Tamron has the best shot at closing the zoom gap.

I stand corrected.  Somehow I missed the VC designation in the jumble of Tamron acronyms.

Actually 6 years

I understand there was a rather mediocre superzoom release for EOS-M sometimes ago, it was badly review and no more tamron lens release since then.

The EF-M mount Tamron 18-200mm was released back in 2014.  There was also a Tamron 14-150mm for m4/3 launched in 2014.  Actually, Tamron has not released a crop mirrorless lens for ANY mount since then.

Sony has been dragging its feet with its rather lackluster APS-C e-mount too. If it weren't for Sigma, Viltrox, SamYang, and Tamron keeping it alive, Sony APS-C would have folded long time ago. I love 3rd party lens, but I'm not a fan of Sony A6xxx range finder design.

Have you seen the “VC” in its name? It means vibration compensation.

That's because it will come to the ef-m mount.

that lens looks as big as a full frame 24-105 F4  why do folk buy APS-c only to lust after lenses as big as FF and as expensive...or in many cases more expensive

i am not saying the M don't need a better standard zoom but something like  the fuji  18-55 f2.8-4 would be more in keeping

if you have a bag or want a bag full of APS-c F2.8 zooms and F1.2/F1.4 primes  you may as well have the equivalent full frame F4 zooms and F1.8/F2 primes  for the same size ish

Because it's about ILCs here.  A lens like this allows you to do everything with aps-c, preventing you from spending the bucks on a full frame camera. With that same camera you have also the choice to go compact by mounting a compact lens.

i am not saying the M don't need a better standard zoom but something like the fuji 18-55 f2.8-4 would be more in keeping

if you have a bag or want a bag full of APS-c F2.8 zooms and F1.2/F1.4 primes you may as well have the equivalent full frame F4 zooms and F1.8/F2 primes for the same size ish

That's why i think aps-c is about price, not so much about size, but a lot of forum members disagree with me.

Regardless the sensor size: As long as you can change lenses you can benefit from the option to mount both large and small lenses.

Flexibility. I can have an APS-C camera kit as small as I like if I don’t need low-light.

And don’t forget about the weight. The Tamron is 180grams lighter than the RF 24-105. An M50 body is another 100g lighter than an RP, or the M6ii is 250g lighter than the R. All in, that starts to add up.
