It says further down:

This item has not yet been released.
You may pre-order it now and we will deliver it to you when it arrives.
Ships from and sold by Amazon.com. Gift-wrap available.


According to Tamron website, it supposed to be launching on 9/20/2008 in Japan.

If you are looking for a Tamron in this range, there is the 28-300mm VC that is released and does very well on image quality.

Isn't it interesting that www.amazon.com sells the Pentax 18-250mm lens for $(US) 420.00. That is $(US) 170.00 less! Wow!

Has anyone picked up this lens? I'm looking for a decent walk-around lens and like the range of this one.

Yes i have had the Tamron 18-270 VC for a month now and i really enjoy it, a perfect travel lens, for a lens like this it is sharp pretty much through all the focal range, i was going to get the EF-S 17-55 but changed my mind and got the 18-270 and then also bought the Tamron 17-50 that is super sharp
