[SOLD] Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 (with 2 filters) (Worldwide) Marketplace Listing

Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 (with 2 filters)

Item Location
Toronto, Canada

Item Description
Full Model Name:
Tamron SP AF17-50mm F/2.8 XR Di II LD Aspherical [IF] Di II : for APS-C DSLRs

Includes original packaging, caps, hoods.

I acquired this from another PF'er about 3 weeks ago in a trade (for a DA14/2.8). It's a great lens that I'd always wanted to try, but after using it once in 3 weeks, I've realized it's not actually a lens that I will use so often. So it's time to find a new home for it.

It's fast and well built, but much smaller than comparable lenses such as the DA*16-50/2.8, the DA17-70/4, the Sigma 18-50/2.8 so it's a great lens on Pentax bodies. (There is a comparison photo below.)

Includes 2 67mm Filters:
  • B+W F-PRO clear UV
  • Tiffen Polarizer

Actual Images:

Comparison (left-to-right):
Sigma EX18-50/2.8 450g, 79mm x L86mm

Pentax DA*16-50/2.8, 600g, 84mm x 98.5mm
(note: not my photo, sorry don't know who took it)
