    don't think that the price is right ! RM800/- converted to S$ makes it even cheaper than the current lens without the VC. Get me a dozen (or maybe 2 dozen) and I will peddle it on the BnS at S$600/- a pop.

    The one without VR is selling at around $620 locally.
    Will be quite worth it if the VR version is around $800.

    For SGD$800 I'd think its quite a good buy, considering that the older version has some compatibility issues with my D80. Lets hope that the same issue would not follow up with this new lens.

    You think?

    I am guessing there might have been changes made (improvements?) since the filter size is 72mm.

    even at $800, still considerably cheaper then a 17-55mm. If the 17-50 is an improvement optically even over the 28-75...should sell very easily.

    apparantly in Msia, ttheir non VC one dropped in price, from rm 1600 to rm1400 or smt. the big big difference in the VC vers isnt the VC. Its the improved AF speed and improved build quality.

    MS told me it should arrive end of the month or start of next week.

    For those who dont wanna wait, east msia has it already. Mee Too photo still dont have it.
    Nikon.

    I just found the Japanese "review" for Tamron 17-50 vc. It's just a gallery of the lens...

    I meant, proper, detailed reviews with sharpness, CA, distortion, light falloff analysis.. something like the photozone, dpreview etc.. type.. not casual user reviews lah..

    The listed casual user reviews already appeared on other threads..

    I think it would be a big thing. If the performance and ergonomics are good, it can definitely compete in the market of the Nikkor 17-55 and Canon EF-S 17-55 IS.
