Where did you buy yours?

Don't have a K1 yet, no stock, but I got my Tamron 70-200 2.8 from one of the Ebay'ers selling Refurb units, and let me put an extended warranty on it. It is tack sharp and contrasty, great OOF areas (Bokeh) it's not decentered (at least not on my K5) which makes me think that at least someone actually looks at the refurb units before they go back out. Heh.

Not sure if I want to start a separate thread for it, but I haven't seen any posts with the K1 and the Tamron 28-75 f2.8 XR Di LD lens yet???

I own that one also, and wonder how well it does.

I figure if I get the new DFA15-30 with my K1, I'll have a mutt trinity of zooms of a sort. Heh.

Amazon for $769 + tax. Wasn't planning to buy it after the outlay for the K-1, but it was 12-months interest free with the Amazon Store Card. I'm one of those folks that card companies hate, because I always pay it off on time or early lol.
B&H and Adorama are offering it at the same price point but without the sales tax bite. I don't mind the sales tax because as a public employee I know the $$ finds its way back home to my community one way or the other.

Added some pictures taken yesterday with the lens and the K-1.
