SushiEater: If it s the same as Sigma Art in every parameter and function why bother? Plus it doesn't have USB dock compatibility so what is the point?

Oh, one more thing. Sigma gives 4 years warranty and Tokina 2 years.

To Revenant. Usually if company releases new product thst is late to the party they will try to make it better to compete. So where is exactly is competition here with a product that is heavier, with less functionalities (no dock)?

SushiEater: Nikon first again. Bravo Tamron.

Ha? Tamron and Sigma make the best lenses right now. I have 2 Nikon lenses and that is 2 too many. All my other lenses are 8 Sigmas and 3 Tamrons. Yes, my Holly Trinity are Tamrons and I would not have it any other way.

Is it even metal like other G2s? I don't see it mentioned anywhere. Also, are switches protruding like other G2s so people with the gloves on can operate them? This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard.

sirhawkeye64: That blows. Because I just got a Gen 1 (my 2nd copy) back in December.... I guess the only big thing I"m losing out on is the compatibility with the TAP-in console...

Not be able to use the console on this lens is not a big loss because as long as the lens in the camera adjustment range you don't need to use it. DOF is huge even at 30mm. Everything is in focus no matter if you want it or not. And who cares about focus speed, it is not a sport lens.

If you had Lenovo brand it would not happen. Lenovo brand does not have Bias. :)

ottonis: I am skeptical because of the lower durability of this new QLC technology. SSDs do already have an inherent limitation of write-cycles/operation and QLC is going to reduce those even more - from what I have gathered.
This technology might be fine for purposes that require a low number of writes (e.g. archiving documents/files). But for people who are eciting gigabytes of large RAW files or who are doing 4k video these SSDs would scare me.

Samsung's other 4TB (non-pro) is rated at 600 writes. IOW you can write 4TB data 600 times. I think this one will be the same

I was joking about Tamron coming out with 18-135mm but not about what I want. I still believe it is very much possible though. No I don't want super zoom. I want super wide to medium wide in one lens. No, not a joke. And I will take 18-105 too as long as it is relatively bright. For FF of course.

Oh, if Tamron does not come out with 18-135mm then I will buy 17-35mm and switch lenses for the group shots on D5. Changing 15-30mm with 24-70mm is not very good idea because 15-30mm is huge and not very manageable for quick change.

I don't think 18-135mm would be a large lens. Canon has one and even though it is for APC-C there is not much difference between FF and APC-C but the rear element. Yes, it would be large but not that large. With today's technology it can be done. Many of today's 10x zooms are very good to excellent. Even Nikon 28-300mm is pretty good. Sigma 50-500mm is excellent.
I shoot on the red carpet.
Most of the time I use 24-70mm, 70-200mm part of the time. 15-30mm occasionally. But I have to bring all 3 bodies and all 3 lenses with me at all times unless I am outside in good light then I bring Nikon 24-120mm.
Now, if I am outside usually 24mm is enough for a group shot since I am at least 10-15ft away. But on the inside I am 6-10ft away and 24mm many times not wide enough. And a lot of times on inside there are no lights so environment is dim. And I can't switch cameras sometimes or it is a hassle. Thus I want one lens that does everything from all distances.

fishy wishy: I expect it will be pap reminiscent of the iffy Sigma ultrawides of the early 2000s except the Tamron will feel more hollow and plasticky.
If you've ever had an underperforming cheap ultrawide you will know the frustration involved. Save yourself pain and get something good no matter which model it is.

Fishy wishy, did you see MTF chart on Tamron site? Take a look and tell us how bad this lens is.

18-135mm is basically a walk around lens on APS-C. I want specific purpose lens on FF where I can photograph a group of people and a bust without changing lenses. Right now I have to use three bodies, D5, D500 and D810 with 15-30, 24-70, 70-200 to do this one job of one 18-135mm F2.8 lens. I am sure it will be no larger than 70-200mm F2.8. Even if it is still don't care because it will be more convenient and lighter than three bodies.

What makes you think it is crop? Yes, it will be huge but I don't care.

18-135mm F2.8 is next. I will take F4 too or f2.8-F4.
