[SOLD] FS: Tamron AF18-250mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II LD Aspherical (IF)

It's budget-crunch time and I have to clean out everything that I'm not using every day. That means that one of my favorite lenses -- the award-winning new Tamron 18-250 f/3.5-5.6 Di II LD, which I bought mid-summer -- has to go, too. I'll have to get it back in the future, but that's the future's problem.

The lens comes as I bought it, with hood, lens cap, end cap, and the original packaging. The lens is in perfect condition, as I haven't had it long enough to use it very much. I bought it earlier this year to replace the Tamron 18-200 that I'd had before and liked a lot; this lens is even better.

As of 10-4-2007 10:50PM, the lens is selling now for $480 at and $499 at Adorama. I'll sell for $425, and I'll pay shipping. USA buyers preferred because shipping is convenient, but feel free to contact me if you're interested, even if you're outside the USA.

Send me a private message here if you're interested or curious, or write to me directly: wmb.porter at gmail dot com.

Note that I'm also selling several other lenses, including the Pentax 16-45 f/4, the Tamron 28-70 f/2.8, and a Pentax M 50 f/1.4. Oh, I've also got a Tamron 1.4x teleconverter for sale. Contact me for prices or make me an offer.

I'll be posting these items on eBay if I don't get any nibbles here in the next few days.

Pentax apparently liked this lens so much, they've released their own version of it. You can get pretty much the same lens today, without waiting in line, by buying my Tamron! Accept no substitutes -- get the original here! ;-)

I've added a couple pictures OF this lens and a few pictures I just took WITH this lens to an unlisted Picasa Web Albums gallery. Click here to view.

Nothing special. Just want to show that the lens itself is in like-new condition, and to give you a quick sense of its range. Please read the caveats at the album's home page regarding the photos taken with the lens.

One of the few actual shoots I've done with this lens was a swim meet in the summer. Click here to see one photo from the middle of the gallery.

Thanks for looking.
