    Strange that the optical formula hasn't been changed/improved. Looking forward to some comparisons between this and the new Sigma.

    There I was... All smug and content and perfectly happy with that I have. *sigh* Thanks, Tamron...

    If anything, though, it'll be the Sigma new 135mm f/1.8 Art then, possibly, this new 24-70. But either is a ways away for me.

    Hard to beat the first version, but this looks fantastic. As much as I've enjoyed sigma's prime ART series, Tamron really hits the nail on the head with it's third party pro-zoom trinity.

    If I was to lust over a Tamron lens, it would be the 15-30mm. First I have to pay off my Paypal balance.

    Hi,

    not good enough... not a bit of weather sealing...
    I don't see a rubber seal at the end of that lens.
    Both Tammy's, old an new, do have it.
