• Tamron's Gen 1 of this lens is on par with Canon's Mark II (based on dxomark rating).
• The cost for the G1 right now is the same after rebate as the G2 with no rebate hassles.
• This updated version is $600 less than the Canon lens ($700 less than Nikon).
• Since BH and Adorama are authorized vendors, these lenses come with 6-year US warranty.

Lenses will begin shipping end of February

I placed an order yesterday, but this is not a hot deal since this is a pre-order for MSRP. In fact, the moment it is actually released, you are likely to receive some kind of goodies from B&H - whether it is filters, cleaning kit, etc.

Might want to move this to deal talk since this is not an actual hot deal.

I'm not up on Tamron or lens news or updates. Props to OP for this post because I may have purchased Gen 1 without knowing about Gen 2 coming out. Not ready to pull the trigger but potentially in the next few months - especially gonna wait to see if/what B&H offers.

Kudos

I recently switched from Canon to NIkon because of superior dynamic range, low light ability, and shadow recovery. I was reluctant because I was afraid I'd miss my arsenal of L lenses. After switching over, I've done countless hours of research and ended up with a bunch of Tamron SP lenses. 15-30, 24-70, 70-200, 90 macro, and they've all been surprisingly sharp with low chromatic aberration. I will say, they have lower transmittance, though, so you'll have to shoot a tad brighter!

Thumbs up for Tamron all day
