Item Description
For sale is Tamron's SP 35-80 F/2.8-3.8 zoom lens in good condition.

The glass is clear, without fungus and no oil on blades. There are some dust partices but very few.

This lens can be used on Pentax with proper adaptor. I am also throwing minolta and olympus adaptor for free.



Here is the review for the lens:

"Tamron SP 35-80mm F/2.8-3.8 Model 01A: Tamron's SP 35-80 F/2.8-3.8 zoom lens is, without question, the best zoom lens ever manufactured within its class and price point. The sharpness and contrast of this lens is extraordinary compared to similar after market lenses and many OEM lenses. Only the similar Nikkor performs better, but not by very much. Macro performance across the central two thirds of the film plane stands up very well against dedicated macro lenses. Amazingly, this lens yields very good macro performance across the entire film plane when used with Tamron's SP 2X tele-converter. There is no push button or macro ring which must be turned to enter the macro mode. The user merely has to continuously turn the focus ring in order to focus from infinity to the minimum focus distance for macro work. Tamron calls this feature "continuous focusing" or CF. While turning the focus ring, the zoom ring will automatically turn as necessary until the zoom ring is at the 80mm zoom setting."

An amazing lens!

FTR. this lens is as sharp as my best Jupiter 9 with a bokeh to back it up too!
I rarely ever use my Jup. as the Tammy is more versatile and just as good for close-up portrait work. A must have for anyone looking for a little more flexibility in their work.
