Item Description
Tamron 28-75mm SP AF XR Di LD Macro - with so many letters it's gotta be good, and it is. I called this lens "my precious." This one was practically glued to my K10D and the reason that many of the other lenses that I have sold here saw so little use. It is in great shape with no scratches on the glass or damage to the coatings. The barrel, etc is in great shape. I ALWAYS used the hood, so I imagine that helped to protect things. I was holding this one til last to make sure everything else sold first. If I was going to keep anything with a Pentax mount, it was going to be this lens. Purchased used, but not abused on this forum.

*To satisfy the urges of so many of our thriftier members who seem to have multiplied exponentially recently, this item will be pre-haggled from $310 to $300 plus shipping (and no less) to the first person to come up with the funds.



Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Love the "pre-haggled" price concept. I need to try that next time

Bump for a fantastic lens!

Thanks! I have that printed on a canvas and it hangs in my den. Can you tell who my favorite subject is?

@crewl1 and dgaies: That may have sounded a bit curmudgeonly, but it truly seems that within an hour of listing an item I'm getting beaten down by 6 people like it's been listed for a month with no interest. Amazing.

The curmudgeonly bit is listing it only now!

I would've bought it together with the 12-24 rather than paying for the postage twice!

So tempting... but I have the DA*16-50. Not sure I can justify it.

Just to add an endorsement for a superb lens. These things are wonderful and are very versatile. It is actually good to have in your kit along with the 16-50 and 50-135 since it covers the "overlap" and can really be useful in those situations where you need breathing room "around" the 50mm point (great in my studio).

Good luck with the sale and congrats to whoever buys it.

Thanks guys. For my new kit, I have a 17-50 (Tamron) and a 50-135(Tokina), but I will still pick up one of these because I use that 35mm-75mm range a LOT and this lens elimiates a lot of lens changing. Then the close-focus feature is just great for impromptu food photography and detail photos. Love it, love it, love it.

This lens is now sold -- thanks for all of the interest and commentary.
