Surprise, wonder: in a while after announcing the 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 lens, Tamron appears to be not able to keep up with the demand. The shipping of the lens has been behind schedule, and the corporate doesn’t know when precisely it’ll get started shipping it once more.
Tamron Japan has issued a commentary referring to the lengthen:
“Scheduled to be launched on Thursday, October 28, 2021, new merchandise “35-150mm F / 2-2.8 Di III VXD (Model A058) for Sony E mount” “28-75mm F / 2.8 Di III” For “VXD G2 (Model A063) for Sony E mount” and “18-300mm F / 3.5-6.3 Di III-A VC VXD (Model B061) for Fujifilm X mount”, we gained reservations that very much exceeded our expectancies. Therefore, it’s anticipated that the quantity of manufacturing won’t keep up with the buyer’s request.”
Put merely, the commentary makes it seem like that the corporate has bit off slightly greater than it might bite. It can’t meet the shoppers’ expectancies referring to the 18-300mm and nonetheless produce sufficient of the upcoming two lenses for the release. It can also be as a result of of the mayhem brought about through this endless pandemic… Or it’s only a advertising and marketing stunt. We’ll by no means know.
Anyways, for those who’ve already made a preorder, you’ll be expecting your 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 to be shipped after the different two lenses are launched. “In addition, it should take a while ahead of the product is delivered as a result of it’ll be dropped at shoppers who make reservations in the long run,” Tamron concludes.
