Item Description
For sale is a Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di II in good condition. This is the last part of my former kit that I'm letting go as I move to an all-prime Pentax setup. It's hard to let it go because it's such a sharp, contrasty, and all-around excellent lens (you can find more backup for this claim in the Tammy Club thread), but I feel like I owe it to myself to give this experiment a solid go.

I would say the lens is in excellent condition, but there are two issues with the lens that bring down the rating (and hence the price):

1. There is a small coating mark near the very edge of the front glass. Has no effect on IQ whatsoever, but it does make the lens less-than-mint.
2. The filter ring came loose through the course of regular use (a common issue with this and other Tamron lenses) and I had to remove the front bezel to re-tighten the three screws that hold it in place. The bezel is attached to the ring by three plastic prongs, and in the course of getting the bezel off I was a bit too rough and one of these snapped. As a result, I had to glue the bezel back in place at the point of the snapped-off prong. You can't tell that this is the case cosmetically, but I'd be remiss if I didn't mention it. The filter ring is now securely screwed in and has stayed that way since I fixed it a few months ago.

Other than that, this lens is in great shape. Focusing and zoom action are smooth, the zoom lock works perfectly, and it autofocuses quickly and accurately on my K-7 (and did on my former K-x, too).

Included: Lens, original caps, original hood, box, papers, etc.

Shipping: Free in USA, WW please ask.

Pics of the lens: Available upon request, but I feel I've done a good job describing it.

Thanks, guys.

By the way, I am pretty firm on the price, which I think is fair.

Also note that a purchase made by 2 or 3pm Mountain time today will be shipped out today and probably delivered on Monday.

For the curious, here's a shot of the coating mark mentioned above:



As you can see, it's at the very edge and quite small. No effect on IQ.

There should be no reason at all why this excellent lens is still available and for sale.

Would you be interested in a swap for the Tamron SP 24-135/3.5-5.6 with a $80 kicker?

Hi,

I'm the second owner, so I don't know the purchase date. It's a Canadian-sourced lens, so there's no warranty available to a US owner as far as I know.
