A Tamron 100-300 AF cute e-Way buy suprise

Arrived this week from an auction I won,

Pentax ZX-10 Camera w/2 Lenses, Bag, Plus Accessories - eBay (item 330199177428 end time Dec-28-07 02:35:36 PST)

The auction picture was not very clear so I took a stab in the dark and bid 76 dollars, The items included were all pristine looks as though they were rarely or never used, a Tamrac bag, ZX10, SMC Pentax F 1:4-5.6 35-80mm,Tiffen 49mm Red 1 US with case, Tiffen CR Polarizer Japan, and
a Tamron AF 100-300 1:5-6.3 with hood.

The 100-300 is why I am making this post. I had never seen or heard of this lens before and it was quite a surprise.

Googling it I could only find Cannon listings and one that was listed at eWay France. Otherwise I cant find any other meaningful information on this lens.
Tamron 100-300 1/5-6.3 pour Pentax K100D, K10D... en vente sur (fin le 19-Déc-07 15:03:18 Paris)

Anyways arrived home early today and had a chance to play with this little gem of a lens before the sun went down. Finding to be tac on spot sharp and quite quick and responsive.

I wish I could past my firewall to post the first images. If my better half does not correct that problem. I am going to call the GEEK squad in.

Any ways it was a very nice find. Do not know if it's a keeper but it will be a toss up between my SMCP-F 100-300. One of the too will have to go.
