Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD Lens
Image quality results have been added to the Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD Lens review page.
 
I think that you are going to like what you see from this lens. You will notice strong barrel distortion at 15mm (details in the top crop sample get enlarged) and some chromatic aberration to be corrected, but overall this lens is looking good including at f/2.8.
 
Here are some comparisons:
 
Tamron 15-30mm VC vs. Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 L II
Tamron 15-30mm VC vs. Canon 16-35mm f/4 L IS
Tamron 15-30mm VC vs. Tokina 16-35mm f/2.8
Tamron 15-30mm VC vs. Zeiss 15mm f/2.8
 
B&H has the Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD Lens available for preorder.

Single On-Camera Flash Illuminates the Beauty of a Rose (Hint: Valentine's Day is Tomorrow)
Roses are arguably one of the most beautiful flowers on the face of this planet. They don't smell so bad either, which makes working around them even more pleasant. Buy the wife (or yourself) a bouquet of roses and you have days' worth of photo subject for your macro lens (and presumably a happy spouse).
 
For this image, I attached a Rogue FlashBender softbox to a forward-facing Canon 600EX-RT Speedlite. With this setup, I was free to shoot handheld as I worked on finding pleasing compositions – with deep-reaching soft light following me. This turned out to be my favorite image from this shoot. A nearly centered rose's petals curve outward into and subsequently out of the frame in a balanced manner.
 
Later, print one of your rose pictures to gain even more return on your small investment.
 
With tomorrow being Valentine's Day, I thought you might find this subject idea timely.

Roger Cicala performed a teardown of the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM and came away wondering, "Is this the best built lens ever?"
 
From the LensRentals Blog:
"For those two or three of you who don't like a little lens strip-tease I'll give you the quick summary: the build quality on this thing is amazing. I usually laugh when people describe a lens as 'built like a tank' because what I know is the lens they are describing has a thick, heavy outer metal shell filled with tiny delicate pieces that break and wear out with great frequency. But this lens is built like a tank inside and out.
 
...
 
I know I can't really, without showing you dozens of other lenses, do a good job of impressing you with just how robustly engineered this lens is. I will say that the insides look more like what we'd expect to see in a 500mm f/4 or 600mm f/4 lens, rather than a telezoom. It's by far the most heavily engineered zoom lens Aaron and I have ever seen; and we've seen the insides of dozens of lenses in this range.
 
Well done, Canon engineers, well done!"
The fully illustrated article can be found on the LensRentals Blog.

Tamron Tripod Ring A011TL for 150-600mm VC Lens
From Tamron:
 
A newly designed optional tripod mount ring for SP 150-600mm VC USD extends the base surface of the tripod mount to improve stability and versatility
 
February 13, 2015, Saitama, Japan - Tamron Co., Ltd. (President & CEO: Morio Ono), a leading manufacturer of precision optics, has announced that the company will display samples of a tripod mount ring (long type) for SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD(Model A011)at CP+ 2015, which will be held from February 12 to 15, 2015, in Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan.
 
Tamron has designed a new tripod mount ring (long type) for its popular SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD (Model A011). Compared to the supplied tripod mount, the new long-type design provides an extended base surface. This extra space not only makes it possible to add a second screw hole for secure mounting, thereby enhancing stability and versatility, but also makes it easier for users to hold the base surface and carry it around. The new mount ring will be sold as a separate accessory.
 
The samples will be on display at CP+ 2015, which will be held from February 12 to 15, 2015 (CP+ booth G-28).

Zeiss Otus 85mm f/1.4 Apo Planar T* ZE Lens
eBay (via Zeiss Authorized Dealer Cameraland – 99.8% Positive Feedback) has a used Zeiss Otus 85mm f/1.4 Apo Planar T* ZE Lens for Canon available for $3,599.99 with free shipping. Compare at $4,490.00.
 
Camaraland has only (2) units available for auction. They were store demos and therefore cannot be sold as new/unopened. For what it's worth, Bryan loved the Zeiss Otus 85mm f/1.4 when he had it for review. This is likely the lowest price you'll ever see for this lens in good condition.
