Item Description
(sorry for reposting this, I wasn't able to bump(price drop) the other post for some reason.)
Autofocus K-mount - full frame lens, with aperture ring for SLR camera

I am selling my Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 to finance the purchase of the Pentax 17-70mm f/4. I bought this lens on March 26 2010 as my kit lens replacement. Originally, my goal was to purchase a UWA after this lens, something like the 12-24mm to fill the wide angle gap but I can no longer finance such purchase and therefore, I am selling this one for a wider kit lens.

This lens is very suited for indoor photography with is wide aperture of 2.8. I used it for my first wedding and it delivered very well. Also, this is a full frame lens, which is a plus for those who are hoping for a full frame pentax DSLR or those who shoot film.

Also worthy to mention is the macro function of this lens. It can easily be used to do some close up shots of flowers and other small thing. It's not a true macro, of course, but it is surprisingly useful nonetheless.

The lens is in mint condition. It is backed by a transferable 7 years Mack Warranty, comes with Hood, original box, lens manual, Tamron warranty paper, Mack warranty paper, original invoice.

The lens was bought from prodigital2000 on ebay, brand new. I bought a Filter at the same time so the front element was always protected.

Focus :
A few months after the purchase, on July 6, I sent the lens for focus calibration because I found that it was front focussing. I sent it to Amplis foto inc. in Ontario, which are the Tamron repair dealer in Canada, for adjustment. The lens came back to me about 1-2 weeks later in perfect shape. Here is what they do : - Adjust optical alignment and replace circuit board data. Check focussing -
Since then, the lens focus perfectly. I use it on my K-x body, so I presume that those with more professional Pentax body like the K-20, K-7 or K-5 could micro adjust it to even more precision with the focus adjustment option on those bodies.

Shipping to Canada is 10$
Shipping to the US is 15$
Worldwide, PM me.

What's included in the price : Tamron lens, original hood, original front and rear cap, original box, all the papers, invoice, mack warranty form, copy of the service order for the focussing adjustment, copy of the mack warranty registration.

The warranty can be transferred to the new owner. I am not sure if there are fees associated to that. The buyer would be responsible for such fees. However, if one prefer to leave it at my name, I could take care of any repair that could be necessary in the next few years. However, since it is such a long warranty, 7 years, I believe one would be better served to just transfer it to his name.

Payment via Paypal or EMT (for Canadian). 3% paypal fee are the buyer's responsability.
