This website shows lenses on display at the Tamron stand in photokina.

The lens shows more than a passing resemblence to the lens used on the Nikon Coolpix P3 eh? Some of its pictures can be found here: http://www.dcresource.com/reviews/ni...ew/index.shtml

So it means that large companies like Nikon are actually rebadging lenses from other companies to put into theirs?
