    Thanks for the reply Allan. How does the alpha like these lenses?

    Looking ahead, the "VC" (Vibration Compensation) that is in the current 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 and works really well, will be placed in the 18-250mm, 70-200mm and the 200-500mm lenses, for use in both Canon and Nikon camera bodies.

    The SONY, of course, will not need such things.

    Just a little update, straight from TAMRON ... well, kinda.
    One can hope that the Sony version would cost less without the VC technology, but I doubt it.
