The firmware fixes it. I think it's a great lens. Sharp end-to-end and comes in at a reasonable price. Since it's mirrorless, you don't have to deal with focus issues like DSLR third party lenses. Though if you plan on getting the Sam/Rok 24mm in addition to the Tamron (paying new), you're also near the same price ballpark of the Sony 24-105mm f4 FE.I saw two posts on FB with Sony enthusiast happy with their Tamron zoom that the focusing issue is fixed. Do any of you hear something similar? Does it come in a firmware? Has any more people getting this Tamron zoom lens. I pre-ordered it, saw the focusing issue, cancel pre-order and now about to order again but this time, I may order from Amazon for the faster delivery.
Any insights to this lens is appreciated? Sine the wide end is not wide enough, do you think getting the Samyang 24mm f/2.8 with AF is justified and a good pair for light and compact. Your thoughts.
update: I find the Tamron firmware update in TAMRON | Support
And I see Jason Wong youtube
I sold mine less than a week and just picked up a dirt cheap 28-70mm kit lens I won off Ebay when I need a zoom for video. I much prefer my 28mm f/2 and 85mm 1.8 prime lenses for the way I shoot.
