Yes, finally there's the first third party AF lens for the E-Mount! This could be the beginning of a whole new age of lenses for the NEX.

All specs after the link bekow. The price could be about 200 - 250 euro/usd, according to other Tamron street prices. What do you think?

I also would think about it at 250 €...
It's good for all of us that third part's lenses comes up.

Little bit unrealistic on the price expectations here. The 18-200 that Tamron sells for DSLR is an old design with neither an in lens focusing motor nor in lens stabilisation. This lens has both.

The closest DSLR equivalent is the current Tamron 18-270 which sell for around $600 and is often available with rebates for $500. I would expect this one to be closer to this price.

Just because it'd shorter on the long end doesn't mean it's cheaper and I would be disappointed if the IQ went backwards. What's the point of that?
