Just reported on DPReview. No word on price but I would like to think it would be cheaper than the Sony 18-200. The closest equivalent DSLR Tamron lens (18-270) is around $600 - less with the regular rebates. Nice to see a third party lens appearing - this should mean there are more to come. It's a shame though that they chose to start with a lens that replicates one already in the Sony line-up rather than bringing something new to the table.
