$699 is a good price. I’ll be very curious to see some pics and review. Still, adding the XF 70-300 to a kit with the 16-80 (which I already have) is probably better a better quality kit. Or even a fast prime between 16 and 35, depending on the target.

I saw someone using a 70-300 the other day for wildlife. Had a quick play with it and it seemed like a really good bit of kit - especially as you say, for the money.

I have my doubts on the overall quality of a superzoom of that magnitude. If a third party lens manufacturer can pull off a winner with that, it would be Tamron. I'll give them that. They are my fav 3rd party lens maker.

I too have the 16-80 and the 70-300 and I can't see much of anything having better IQ than those. I do see and can appreciate the convenience it what it represents and wish Tamron all the best.
