Tamron responds — Lensmaker has not been bought by Sony

Since there was nothing on either the Sony or the Tamron websites about any merger or takeover, I wrote to Tamron asking for clarification of the Sony buyout rumors.

The response was quick and clear:

Dear Mr. Bonner,

There is no truth to the rumors that Sony has purchased Tamron.

Thanks.

It’s always best to hear it from the horse’s mouth!
