[SOLD] For sale: Tamron AF 70-300 f/4-5.6 Di LD 1:2 macro

Here's the info. It's the AF 70-300 f/4-5.6 Di LD 1:2 macro.

I started out with the Pentax 75-300 as well as the 50-200 (which I think you said you have). I wasn't super impressed with the Pentax 75-300 and the reviews of the Tamron lens in the same range were better, so I sold the Pentax, bought the Tamron. It's been a lovely lens and I've taken some nice photos with it, or least I've been pleased with them. Here's one shot I took way back in March when I was still trying to figure the K10D out:

whooping crane

I'm selling the 70-300 because I need to pay for other purchases like the Sigma 10-20 (ouch) and right now I need this lens less than others I've got. One day, if I'm a really good boy, Santa will bring me a Bigma or at least something that goes to 400.

Lens is in excellent condition -- nothing wrong with the glass, no significant scratches -- and comes with lens cap, hood, and end cap, plus the original box and packaging. sells it new for $181 right now and used from $143. I am willing to sell it here for $125 + shipping. I do a good job with my eBay listings (good text, good photos) and I've had very good results, selling my K100D for example for almost what a new one would have cost the buyer! So I think I might do better, but it's easier here.

Payment by PayPal. Also, my experience shipping outside the US is not good. I'm willing to consider it but please contact me so I can explain what I think the options are.

If you'd like more info, more pictures (including a photo or two of the lens), just let me know.

I'm very tempted but this is right at the edge of my budget range.

Hope I've got a few days to make myself decide.

I have had a few back-channel expressions of interest for which I'm grateful. I want to give the buyer the receipt for the original purchase since it's a six-year warranty, but I need the help of my assistant to find that receipt and she's not in the office until later today. Once I dig that out of the receipt boxes in my office, I'll be back in touch with everybody who's contacted me. Thanks.
