Who bought that ugly ass Tamron 300mm f/2.8 on Ebay?

I did, and I think I got a good deal.

There's nothing wrong with the lens except cosmetics. It didn't come with a lens hood, so after some measuring, low and behold, a rubber PVC/CI coupling is the perfect size -- FYI for anyone in a similar situation.

I don't have an adaptall to fit Pentax yet -- Adorama is out of stock, and I picked them for free shipping. I should have just got it from B&H and paid the measly 4 dollars shipping. Oh well.

But it came with a Nikon mount, and so being the impatient fellow I am, I took it to the field anyway. Thus:

Yeah, it looks really bad. I wouldn't mind helping you get rid of it.

Haha, and I thought that -mine- was used! Still, it's the optics that count! Looks like you got a really good deal.
