Tamron Issues Notice Regarding Supply of New 70-300mm VC Lens
November 19, 2010
Tamron Co., Ltd.
Regarding Inventory Sufficiency of the SP70-300mm F/4-5.6 Di VC USD (Model A005)
Since Tamron released in Japan the SP70-300 F/4.5.6 Di VC USD (Model A005) telephoto zoom lens in August 2010, orders have greatly exceeded expectations. Tamron is extremely grateful for this stong consumer response, but an unfortunate side effect has been the difficulty of production volume to keep pace with demand. We would like to reassure all customers who are waiting for this product that we are currently doing everything we can to meet demand levels, and offer our sincerest apologies for such resulting inconvenience.
We appreciate the patience and understanding of Tamron customers as we promptly address these temporary inventory issues. Tamron reiterates its commitment to maintaining the satisfaction that its loyal customers have come to expect over the years.
The lens still appears to be available in the USA - and at $399 shipped after mail-in rebate, the price is right:

Think Tank Photo Redesigns Camera Straps, Hydrophobia 300-600
From Think Tank Photo:
NEWLY REDESIGNED HYDROPHOBIA® 300-600 RELEASED
We have upgraded our rain cover for super telephoto lenses, the Hydrophobia 300-600. The Hydrophobia 300-600 V2.0
pre-mounts to the lens hood to be quickly deployed during inclement weather. If bad weather is intermittent, the rain cover can stay in the pre-mounted position but pulled out to cover the camera when needed. The rain cover now offers a larger clear window on back for increased view of the camera and LCD screen. Version 2.0 also features a tethered lens hood cover to keep moisture or debris from hitting the front lens element, while the camera is not being used.
For smaller lenses up to a 70-200 we also have the Hydrophobia® 70-200
and the Hydrophobia® Flash 70-200
with built-in flash protector. They feature side arm holes for focusing and accessing switches. And now, without exposing your expensive bodies and lenses to the elements, you can change memory cards and batteries without taking off the rain covers. The external Camera Strap (included) eliminates the need to remove the strap attached to the camera body. Click here
for a video showing the Hydrophobia 70-200 in action.
NEWLY REDESIGNED CAMERA STRAPS RELEASED
We have completely redesigned our Camera Straps. The Camera Strap V2.0
features non-slip material on both sides so the strap will not slip off the shoulder, even if the strap is upside down! Designed for less bulk and increased portability, the Camera Strap V2.0 also attaches to Think Tank backpacks and harnesses by using the Camera Support Straps

Updated: Standardized Test Results for the Zeiss 100mm f/2.0 Makro-Planar T* ZE Lens
Standardized test results have been added to the Zeiss 100mm f/2.0 Makro-Planar T* ZE Lens Review
I have temporarily removed the ISO 12233 chart results for the Zeiss 50mm f/2.0 Makro-Planar T* ZE Lens and the Zeiss 100mm f/2.0 Makro-Planar T* ZE Lens review pages. While both lenses show excellent resolution right into the corners, the results are showing some flaring around the edges of the details in the chart. Zeiss does not think this should be happening, so I'm going to test a Canon lens simultaneuosly with a Zeiss lens - and perhaps test using two camera bodies. Stay tuned for the results (probably next week).
