Tamron Japan is set to launch its 17-50mm f/2.8 Di II VC lens in a Canon camera compatible version.

A Nikon version of the VC [Vibration Compensation] lens (containing a built-in motor) went on sale in Japan last month.

The AF17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di II VC LD for Canon goes on sale in Japan on 29 October.

There is no word as yet on UK availability.
