Tamron presentation: there will be no Tamron lenses for Fuji due to low demand


Here is a quick recap from a recent Tamron presentation:

  • Sony owns 12% of Tamron's stock.
  • During the COVID-19 quarantine, the number one selling lens is the Tamron 150-600mm Canon and Nikon (people were shooting out of their windows). This caught Tamron by surprise and many dealers are out of stock of this lens.
  • The Tamron 35mm f/1.4 was a statement lens issued for their 40th anniversary. It was designed for quality. This was their best quality lens ever released.
  • There will be no Fujifilm lenses due to low "worldwide" demand - just not enough volume to cover engineering and development.
  • Tamron's manufacturing is now working 7 days/week - 52 weeks/year.
  • Tamron will launch a total of five new mirrorless lenses in the USA this year.
  • Tamron is still offering their VIP club.

Tamron is rumored to release new mirrorless lenses for Nikon Z-mount - a Tamron rep confirmed that in a video that was removed shortly after it was published on NikonRumors.
