Tamron Will Release a New 24-70mm f/2.8 Lens this Year: Rumor

Rumor has it Tamron is about to update a very popular lens. The lens maker’s current 24-70mm f/2.8 was released over five years ago in 2012, and if the recently updated 70-200mm is any indication, photographers should be very excited about the 24-70mm f/2.8 G2.

This news was originally reported by Photo Rumors, who unfortunately didn’t identify any specific source or give this rumor a credibility rating. However, as they point out, a replacement to the 24-70mm f/2.8 is a logical next step for Tamron. The 70-200mm G2 has been hailed as a super affordable lens-to-beat in its class, and the old 24-70 is getting up there in age.

With Sigma’s recently-announced 24-70mm f/2.8 ART receiving all sorts of excited press, and Canon’s 24-70mm f/2.8 long overdue for a refresh, Tamron would be foolish not to update their 24-70. In other words: keep en eye out, we expect this lens to arrive in 2017.

We’ll share more info as we receive it.
