I bought my Tamron 70-200/2.8 on craigslist for $425 - it is possible to find one for that much, but I doubt it would happen again.

Another possibility to consider is an older Adaptall lens + adapter, like the 80-800/2.8, IIRC those were around $400 on keh.

The best bucks for the money you can get is Tokina ATX PRO 28-70. f2.6-2.8.
Not the best 2.8 zoom but no other 2.8 zoom will be as cheap.

If you know the story behind the lens and the pros and cons, you will like it.

Some time has passed by and I got me the F 70-210.

BUT!!! More important. I got the F 35-70 3.5-4.5 (!)
This has been my walk around lens ever since. The lens is so little, it has close focusing ability and the AF is super fast!!!
