All I could say about it before I bought it was, "Dammit, Tamron!  Hurry up and send me one!" :D

PJ,

 

I am full of anticipation!  I played with it at the show and the "WOW" factor is HUGE!

 

I went into the LCS to enquire aboout the 2 I have on order and they said........ "IF I am lucky.... AUGUST ... ", <_< kill me now!!!

 

Tough decision to make, I can probably get one faster from the USA.... but the warranty is substantially less than Canada.  6 years over here!! vs 2, I think.

 

The LCS guy said what every comes into the store is all spoken for, no Demo, no anything... comes in..goes out FAST!  Everyone picks up immediately.  :lol:  No kidding, they fear it will be sold if they don't!

I've been kicking myself for not ordering 4 from the git-go.  I could have sold the other 3 in a heartbeat and made a tidy sum to boot.
