Conclusions from DxOMark:

Tamron has done much more than just a casual update of this lens, having totally redesigned the exterior, added improved weather sealing and a new quick-locking mechanism to maintain a set focal length, and even included a built-in Arca-Swiss compatible lens plate in the foot of the removable tripod collar.

Tamron has also refreshed the optical construction by adding an extra element to the rear. While this has resulted in a very slight drop in sharpness with respect to its predecessor (mostly in the outer zones), it’s still a great performer optically and it remains a hugely attractive option at a highly competitive price.
