Tamron’s upcoming 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di III-A VC VX D lens for Sony E and Fuji X mounts, which first saw a development announcement in July is expected to be announced on September 24th (in Sony flavour – Fuji will come later). All the details, along with complete specs have already been leaked. That is to say, all details except the price.

I guessed back in July that it would probably sit somewhere around the $650 mark when comparing to something like Nikon’s 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR and it seems I wasn’t far off. A number of sources including Nokishita are now saying that the new Tamron lens will cost $699. It also looks like B&H has jumped the gun again, by putting up a listing along with all the photos, some marketing speak and a few of the specs.

B&H doesn’t mention a price, though. They simply let you sign up to be notified once the official announcement has been made. Nokishita and other websites, however, are quoting the $699 price. While it is obviously still a rumour, it’s pretty close to what I think most of us would expect.

The Tamron 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di III-A VC VX D lens marks the first 3rd party autofocus zoom lens for the Fuji X system. And while Fuji shooters will have to wait a little while longer for it, the Sony E mount version is expected to be announced on September 24th.
