Broken Tamron Lens Update

I know you've all been on tenterhooks waiting for an update on my broken Tamron 70-300 lens from this thread:

Just broke my Tamron A17 70-300mm - PentaxForums.com

so I thought I'd update you.

It's fixed! I gave it to my wife for her k-x earlier today

It's only taken six and a half years and a donor lens. I reckon that now I've had a bit of practice, I could even get the next repair down to just six years

Reminds me of a saying...

If a man says he's going to fix something, he will. And he doesn't need reminding every six months!

Hi,

Congratulations on the repair. You will just have to be a bit more careful in the future when you try the focusing rings on new purchases!

Regards,
Gordon.
