Rule #4975.34.AV30iiv (0.453 revision) of the Brand Fairness Doctrine requires that every time we mention a Tokina special, we have to match it with a Tamron offer, if nothing else, because those two names are too similarly confusing, at least to newcomers to the world of photography 😉 With that unnecessary introduction out of the way, the Tamron SP 24-70mm f2.8 DI VC USD Lens is offered for $1200 after a $100 mail-in rebate (MIR) plus 4% promotional rewards (= $50~) by B&H Photo in the Canon, Nikon and Sony Minolta Alpha mounts.
Zoom-zoom APS-C DSLR-style now as Tamron has a new 18-200mm f3.5-6.3 Di VC II lens available for pre-order for $250 in the Canon, Nikon and Alpha (the C/N/A in the blog-post title) mounts. You can pre-order them at B&H Photo and Adorama.
You can find this lens added to the tracking page of New Cameras and Lenses of 2015.
Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 Di VC USB with 82mm VU filter, 3yr Spills/Drops, Lowepro Lens Exchange for $1224 after $100 MIR (C/N/A)
The Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 Di VC USD currently goes for $1200 after a $100 mail-in rebate at authorized dealers, but if you also want a drops and spills warranty and a lens case and a filter, Adorama has them bundled up for $1224 after the $100 MIR in the Canon, Nikon and Sony SLR mounts. So the extra $25 gets you a three year NewLeaf spills and drops warranty, the Lowepro Lens Exchange Case 100AW case ($35 on its own) and a VU Sion UV 82mm Filter (VSUV82, $100+ on its own).
B&H Photo has a special on 15 Tamron Lenses, with discounts, mail-in rebates and 4% promotional rewards. The count includes all mount options available through this offer, not unique lenses. Offer ends 6/30/15.
Zoom-zoom! If you do not hate mail-in rebates with a passion, between May 1-10 in 2015, there are two stackable $50 mail-in rebates on the Tamron 16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD (Canon, Nikon, Sony DSLR mounts). The lens price is $630 before the two mail-in rebates. One of the $50 MIR offers ends 5/10/15. You also get 4% promotional rewards from Adorama
Tamron has another mail-in rebate promotion, this one runs May 1st until June 30 in 2015, with the 70-200, 70-300, 24-70, 18-270, and 16-300 lenses participating. Adorama also includes 4% promotional rewards and free accessories on some of them. Here they are, broken down by mount: Nikon mount and Canon mount and Sony mount.
f2.8 zoom action now, the Tamron 16-28mm f2.8 ATX Pro FX lens is on sale for $600 with free shipping at Adorama for the Canon and Nikon SLR mounts.
