Item for Sale
Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 Lens

Asking Price
450.00 USD

Item Location
Hawaii (United States)

Item Description
Lens, front and rear caps, hood, collar, and soft case all included. NO BOX.

I am the second owner of the lens. This was purchased new from Adorama in mid-2016. I then bought it from the original owner in late 2016. I had the mirror-less K-01 at the time and the focusing was finicky (very slight back or front focusing). Some reported this lens doesn't pair well with the K-01 due to the contrast detection AF. Not until I sold it in early 2017 did I find out that the focusing issue had to do with the lens, not my camera. I accepted the return from the buyer.

Fast forward about a year. I had the lens adjusted by Tamron USA for $225 as the 6-year warranty only applies to the original purchaser. Ugh! I just got it back June 14, 2018.

Anyway, here it is up for sale, just back from Tamron. They confirmed the focusing had been slightly off prior to adjustment. I tested it out w/ my recently-acquired K-70 and it focuses just fine now!!! I noticed two specks of dust in the internal elements that are visible in the photos. Obviously, they do not affect the image quality.

Selling because this lens is way too large and heavy for me for travel. Thinking about going back to the 50-135mm DA*.

What a wonderful lens for the K-1. I love mine. This is the most compact 70-200 2.8 lens out there. I will add that this lens does not work too well with liveview. This is a known issue. Bump for the best 70-200 2.8 lens out there for the money.
