Tamron 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD lens for Nikon F-mount now available for pre-order


The Tamron 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD lens for Nikon F-mount is now available for pre-order at B&H. I believe this is an old lens (announced in Japan in 2016?) and I am not sure why it just got listed for pre-order as a "new release". Maybe this is a new version? Shipping is expected to start on May 30th:


The same lens is listed at Adorama for $100 more.

Update: B&H confirmed to me that this indeed is a new version of the lens. Her is a picture of the old version - as you can see the zoom grip is different:
