Rumor has it this will be about $800 USD and have some sort of image stabilization. I'm excited! I'm thinking to replace my 18-135 kit lens with this lens.
I know who is not excited: my accountant a.k.a. my wife 😅

In an unexpected turn of events (a planned trip got cancelled) I had some funds free up and I placed my order for the Tamron 17-70. I'm pretty excited about it and plan to do the same thing I did when I got the Tamron 24: take a walk in the park with only this lens equipped and give myself a chance to learn the lens.

Lens came in today, beer can for size reference. Pardon the cellphone picture.
Too late to test it, but will take plenty of pictures over the next few days or on the weekend.
