In early August this year, Tamron revealed it was developing the Tamron 70-180mm F/2.8 Di III VC VXD G2. Now the lens has been officially announced, and is expected to go on sale on October 12th, with an expected retail price of 150,000 yen (approximately $1,000/£1000).

The new lens will initially be available for Sony E-mount full-frame mirrorless cameras, although it could potentially spread to other mounts in time. An example being Nikon Z mount, as the Nikon Z 70-180mm f/2.8 is essentially a re-bodied example of Tamron's existing 70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VXD lens.
