Tamron 17-28mm Testing, Samples, and Possible Price Increase

Tamron is sending their Tamron 17-28mm Di III RXD FE to reviewers and so far opinions have been universally positive like for the Tamron 28-75mm Di III RXD FE. Tamron’s light high-quality designs have been very attractive and it looks like the Tamron 17-28mm Di III RXD FE is going to be difficult to get for months like the 28-75mm.

Since Tamron is having trouble keeping up with demand there has been speculation online that the lens will go up by $100 like the 28-75mm did, which could happen, but I think it will depend more on long term availability. 17-28mm preorders could be beyond expectations simply because of how poorly the 28-75mm launch was handled. I do not think Tamron will raise the 17-28mm price if we see high availability in 2-3 months, but if it goes longer like the 28-75mm did than I think a price increase will become inevitable.
