Tamron 150-600mm f5-6.3 SLR lens coming Jan-27-2014 to USA

Tamron announced via press release that their new 150-600mm f5-6.3 Di VC USD (model A011) lens will be released on January 27 (2014) in the USA. A USA price has not been revealed yet. The lens is now appearing at B&H Photo in the Canon, Nikon and Sony SLR mounts but there is no price and no pre-order option as of the time of writing. The Sony version does not get the image stabilization.

Japanese supersite DC Watch Impress has a Japanese price of 147 kiloyen which "translates" to around $1425 but keep in mind, prices are not always just a currency translation.

UPDATE (12/15/13): CNet News says the US price is $1070.

The press release states that customers love the existing 200-500mm but "customers have shown great interest in having a lens that provides an even greater focal length range". Zoom Ratio Wars! It comes with SILKYPIX Developer Studio for Tamron.

In Tamron speak, VC = optical image stabilization, Di = digitally optimized, USD = not currency, but Ultrasonic Silent Drive.
