Discontinued Tamron 28-200 LD

Hello, and happy holidays fellow pentax owners. Was wondering if any of you own thie lens, or have used it. What's the difference between the older(LD) one and the newer(XR) model?

Also if you have some photo examples of the older lens, please post them..

I found one in my area for a decent price, was wondering if the quality was worth picking up this lense, or just stick wit my plan for getting the pentax 50-200 lens?



thanks.

Flaco,

I have the XR (non-DI) version of this lens, rather happy with it, no personal experience with the older unit, but here is the link that would offer you some information where PopPhoto has some comparing lines of these two:

Tamron 28-200mm f/3.8-5.6 XR AF - - PopPhotoAugust 2001

Regards,
D

Thanks for the info Duh Vinci... I'm leaning towards the 50-200mm still, but the price of the old school 28-200 is very tempting too. Found them in my area for a like 100 bucks with tax.

But if the quality is not to hot, no need to spend the money on it.
