Tamron 70-200mm/2.8 II VC silence motor?!?!?!

Just talked to a local Tamron dealer, I was informed that Tamron is coming out with the second generation of their 70-200mm/2.8, which will come with their VC technology, super silenced motor, the completely different element(somewhat), it should be out by fall; I was also told that the price would be about $300 more than the current model!

Has anybody else heard of anything yet?

No, but I hope the aperture acutation mechanism has been upgraded too.

Wonder how good the VC motor will be in that lens. The K-7 with the current 70-200 version is incredibly fast, despite being extremely loud. A grand.... That's the same price as a Canon 70-200 f/2.8 USM, and almost the a 70-200 f/4 USM IS.

Really the only thing I could wish for, as an upgrade to the current version, is a "Quick-Shift" type manual focus override.
