Item Description

Hello everyone! I am selling a copy of the legendary Tamron SP 80-200MM f/2.8 LD MD 30A Adaptall lens, a Tamron PK/A mount (with electric contacts) and a Tamron SP 2x TC. PayPal GIFT or Regular (please add 3%). Price includes USPS Priority shipping with Confirmation in US. For interested members outside US, please contact me first.

If you are familiar with Tamron history, you already know this is one of its best zoom lenses ever made. Following is a brief professional evaluation of this model: "it has a superb optical design which features a three element focus group incorporating one low dispersion (LD) element, plus a five element variator group coupled with a three element compensator group. Resolution and contrast, compared to similar OEM lenses, is excellent to say the least. Overall, this lens is very slightly soft in the corners at F/2.8 due to extremely slight off-axis astigmatism and coma. Chromatic aberration and lateral color are extremely slight as well. Corner sharpness equals center sharpness by F/4, producing very sharp images across the entire film plane. Sharpness peaks at F/8 with images which are razor sharp and the equal of all but the very best moderate to medium telephoto prime lenses. Always use this lens with its included lens shade to minimize internal reflections and prevent flare. Performance is exceptional compared to similar after market lenses, and is comparable to the best of the similar OEM lenses such as the 80-200 F/2.8 Nikkor."
  • The zoom lens is in EXCELLENT + condition with very minor signs of wear. It comes with the original metal lens hood, front & rear caps.
  • The SP 2x TC is in MINT condition and comes with the original case and front cap.
  • The PK/A mount is in EXCELLENT condition with minor signs of wear. It comes with rear cap and box.
$325 for all three items as a complete nice package -- SOLD. Or you can pick up individual items at the following prices:
  • Tamron SP 80-200MM f/2.8 LD MD 30A Adaptall lens -- $245 shipped
  • Tamron Adaptall PK/A mount -- $65 shipped
