In an interview with DPReview, Tamron execs gave a clear statement. Besides talking a lot about the new Tamron 28-75mm FE () lens for Sony systems, they said the company is ready to build lenses for future full frame mirrorless cameras. Guess who they where addressing?
[…] Everybody is going to mirrorless. Canon and Nikon will launch full-frame mirrorless cameras, probably in the near future. When this happens, we can easily make Canon and Nikon versions of our [native] E-mount lenses. The same design could work for [multiple mirrorless mounts].
Good to know that Tamron can easily convert their lenses for a soon to come full frame mirrorless system by Canon. And that Canon will deliver “probably in the near future”. Sony execs also are quite sure Canon will announce a full frame mirrorless camera within a year. And if both Nikon and Canon are going to launch such a camera things are going to be interesting.[via Nikoneye]
