A 35-150mm f/2.8-4. Well, it is an original idea but what is the point? Especially with these max apertures?

That 35-150 would mesh pretty well with a 16-35/17-35 lens for people who don't like lots of FL overlap. It could also double as a normal to medium telephoto for APS-C shooters, in lieu of the (almost?) extinct 50-135/150 class. It's a pity that (as Lenstip had found in their recent review of the new 17-35) "OSD" really stands for slow and noisy old school micro motor, not a variation on the USD. Tamron blew it there.
MFD 0.45 m throughout the zoom range could be interesting. As Rover said, together with a 15/16/17-35 (and even a 150-600 at the longer end,) it's an impressive coverage.
However, I still don't see why the 150-600 could be updated to the Z-series by mid November and it's smaller sibling is still awaiting this update. Less so Canon: Both 150-600 and 100-400 are already up to date for EOS-R. Lazy Tamron, I have to say.
Well a 35-150f2.8 would be a lovely lens for APS-C tokina made one in the past dunno why it didn't succeed, maybe because of price and weight, too bad nobody wants pro APS-C lenses anymore..
No, Tokina made a 50-135mm f2.8 lens. And nothing that Tokina makes "succeeds".
