So I purchased both of these. Cameraland on ebay which is an authorized dealer out of NY has had these prices up before but was sold out but now has some back in stock. Right now Tamron is offering a $100 rebate making the prices an excellent deal IMHO.

Tamron 70-200 VC - $1299 (external link)

Tamron 24-70 VC - $1099 (external link)

Here is the link to the rebate form: Tamron Rebate Site (external link)

IF cameraland sells out and doesn't have any just email them telling asking them when they will put more up and wait for it. I did that they were sold out of both and sent them a question through ebay and they told me it would be 3 day and would put more back up. They did so I jumped on it.

Here is the direct link to their store in case they put more up you can keep checking: Camera Land Ebay Store (external link)

Here is the link to the Tamron Authorized dealer list: Tamron Dealer List (external link) showing that CameraLand is an authorized dealer
CAMERA LAND - Map It
(212) 753-5128 | 575 LEXINGTON AVENUE, NEW YORK, NY 10022

Figured I'd share.

don't. I bought one and sold it. It is huge lens and the ring location on the lens is weird. When you think you rotate the zoom lens, it actually the focus ring. :rolleyes:

It's 4 oz lighter than the brick and you get used to the ring placement and direction within a week of using it.

It's a 2.8 zoom lens, it's going to be big. The Canon 24-70 2.8s are even bigger. And I've had no issue with zoom ring. Sure it operates in the opposite direction to Canon zooms, but this bothered me for perhaps 5 seconds. :rolleyes:

??? LOL

if learning to switch between the focus and zoom ring is too hard for you, and a lens lighter than the infamous 'brick' is too heavy....you may need to switch to a point and shoot.

I have a tamron 17-50 2.8 and although the zoom direction is opposite, it takes a minute to 'learn' it (if you will). Sometimes you'll forgot when switching between canon/sigma then onto the tamron, but it's not even an issue what so ever.


":rolleyes:"

I'm used to the brick, and I've owned a Tamron 17-50, so that's no problem for me.

just to update post:

It said I bought the 'last one' not sure if thats just part of their sales strategy or what, but thought i'd let future buyers know in case they cant get that price any more.


Really tempted on the 70-200 2.8 VC too at this price.

I've been watching camera land on eBay and they have had these prices for last two months. If they sold out give em a week thy will put more up. Been doing this about 5 times in past two months for sure.

i forgot most of you guys use it for still photography. I used it mostly with Sony FS-700. I get used to the way Canon/Nikon lens ring placement. My bad. :)

The Tamron 24-70 lives on my cam! It's an awesome lens! The whole zoom part doesn't really matter, when I do actually switch lens it's no big deal.
