Item Description
Hello All,

I have just dropped the price of my PKAF Tamron 18-200 mm XR Di II zoom by 20 Euro. If you were waiting for a price reduction, now's your chance!

I will only accept PayPal for payment.

Shipping will be via registered post: Inside Ireland, €10. To European member countries, UK, USA, Canada, €25. If you aren’t in one of these places, please send me a message and I’ll give you a quote on shipping.


I bought this lens new in October of 2009. The only reason I have chosen to put it up for sale is a need to thin my rather overgrown herd of lenses.

Overall, this lens is in very good condition. I would say that it is excellent optically. There are a couple of specks of dust inside and one tiny, tiny spec of what appears to be a fleck of glass (which has been inside the lens and in the same place since I bought it). It it does have some slack in the rubber on the zoom ring – something that is apparently common with Tamron lenses of this vintage. Otherwise, however, the body of the lens is largely free of any major signs of wear. The zoom and focus functions are also perfect and the aperture is quick to respond.

This lens will ship with its original front and rear caps, the original hood, and some of the original paperwork. Sorry, but I don’t have the original box anymore.

This lens gets some mixed reviews on the Pentax Forums, but I think it’s a competent lens that’s very good for general use and especially for “one-lens travel”. I’ve used it to capture images of just about any subject and with generally pleasing results. For a sampling of images made with this lens mounted on a Pentax K-5, K-30 or K-x, please look at these links:

Another shameless bump for the weekend.

Just in case anybody is interested in seeing what camera body and exposure details were used with this lens, you can view the EXIF info in the Tamron 18-200 samples gallery by clicking on the little "i" (for information) icon in the bottom right after you've clicked on an image to enlarge it. The telephoto image of Neuschwanstein Castle with the autumn leaves was made with the Tamron on a K-x (there isn't any EXIF data for that image).

Have a great weekend everybody!

Hello All,

I've just reduced the price of this lens to 90.00 Euro (shipping is extra - please see the ad for details).

If anyone wants to buy this lens and the Pallas 28mm I have for sale, I'll combine shipping.

Questions are always welcome.

Have a great weekend.

Jared
