Tamron 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD (Model B008TS) Officially Announced

Tamron press release:

Tamron Co., Ltd. (President & CEO: Shiro Ajisaka; Headquarters: Saitama City), a leading manufacturer of optics for diverse applications, announces launch in the Japanese market of “18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD (Model B008TS),” now equipped with fluorine coating and with its external design renovated from “18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD (Model B008),” launched in 2010 as a high-power zoom lens exclusively for APS-C format digital SLR cameras.

Product Highlights

  • External design renovated
  • The zoom ring and focus ring using linear-based grid patterns and the brand ring in tungsten silver create an external design with a high-grade feel.
  • Equipped with fluorine coating to improve user-friendliness for the lens

These drawings show how people would like the next Canon EOS M to look

Canon eos m5

Two drawings have been posted in a forum. The sketches depict a possible mirrorless camera with a Canon logo.

Though these sketches are sold as possibly depicting the next Canon EOS M camera, I do not think they have anything to do with the real thing. Most likely the drawings just show what kind of  mirrorless camera people would like Canon to make. There is absolutely nothing that suggests the drawings may point to a real camera.

Canon is rumored to announce two mirrorless cameras before September 15th. Stay tuned…!
