    I'd love that, especially if they fill some little empty spaces.

    I've always had a lot of respect for the Tamron 90mm macro, ever since the days of Adaptall-2...

    This might be interesting - I really loved the Tamron 17-50/2.8 on Nikon dx

    Would be great to get their 18-400mm for Fuji. Would be a fantastic lens for me.

    I'd be more excited if Sigma started making their lenses in a Fuji mount

    That would be awesome. Maybe Sigma will follow Tamron if sales are good.

    These companies are not charities. If they see that there is money to be made in the Fuji mount, we should take this as a positive indicator of the system's robust good health.

    A $200 macro would be nice as would a 20-35mm f3.5 compact zoom(for street) would be neat. As would a 100-300mm constant f5 zoom, which they have, but is a f5.6-6.3.

    A native Fuji mount of the old favourite 70-300 f4-5.6 would be a fine thing too. That is one of the bargain lenses of all time.

    Tamron making Fuji lenses (assuming for a moment that the rumor is correct) means Tamron working with Fuji to pull it of. The result can only be products that benefit both companies. Cooperation, not competition.

    I bought my first Tamron lens in 1977, a 135 f2.8 adaptall in Fuji ST mount. I still have it and use it, works like a champ. I've used many Tamron zooms over the years, mostly from the SP line, my favorites are the 70-210 f3.5 and 35-80 f2.8-3.8. I used a 35-105 f2.8 Tamron SP on my Maxxum 9000 (auto focus) for years before selling the whole kit. My Canon 7D wears a Tamron 17-50 f2.8 VC, one of the sharpest lenses I have ever owned. A Tamron 90mm f2.5 adapted lens is my go to macro for my Fuji cameras. To say that I look forward to trying a Fuji-specific Tamron lens is a bit of an understatement!
