New Tamron Lens bargain (UK only)

Tucked away in the latest Jessops Buyers Guide (p. 48 to be precise) appears the Pentax fit Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DI LD Macro for an amazing (for the UK, that is) 69.99.

Unless anyone knows better, this must be the best price around for this really great lens. Got mine today with 1 year warranty and NO postage - if you visit one of their stores that stock it. Seems the reason is the usual one - slow Pentax sales. Incidentally, the same lens for Canon/Nikon fit is still 199.99.!

I never thought I'd say this about Jessops but "Well done" Keep stocking great Pentax gear and sell it off at bargain prices.

I have this lens - U.S. version. It was really cheap ($130-$140) when I bought it a year ago and it's a really great lens. This is one I will probably never regret spending money on.

Definitely worth it for 69.99. Anyone who wants to start out with a long zoom like this should get one.
I bought one last year, but it cost a fair bit more than that at the time.
