Tamron flags 16.6x APS-C zoom lens

The 18-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di III-A2 VC VXD (Model B061) lens will cover an impressive 27mm to 450mm (full-frame equivalent) zoom range.
We’ve attached the press release here, but to be honest there’s not much more to glean from it. Pictures of the lens indicate it’s quite compact for such a big zoom range.
