Item Description
For sale is a nice copy of the well reviewed (see the reviews on this site) Tamron SP AF 28-75mm f2.8 XR Di LD Aspherical (IF) Macro with Kenko 67mm Pro1D UV filter (roughly $30 brand new. This UV filter is in excellent condition).

Price - $325 (Paypal fees included) + Actual shipping cost. (PM for a quote if interested)

I bought this lens used, so I am not the original owner. I am selling it because I just don't use zooms as much as I do my primes. I definitely miss this lens for it's very nice IQ and the convenient normal/portrait range vs. zooms that end at 50mm. I don't have the lens box. It will come with the original lens hood, original rear cap, and a basic off-brand replacement front cap. Unfortunately I can't find the original front lens cap. You can see the condition of the lens in the photographs below. The rubber grips could probably use a little clean, as you can see it has a slightly lighter color in some of the grooves of the grip in the attached photographs. It takes a +3 adjustment on my K7. Autofocus works great. Aperture blades are nice and snappy. The glass is very clean and I can't detect any flaws or scratches on it anywhere. There is one super small speck of dust that is par for the course for any used lens. It certainly has no effect that I can see on the image quality. The IQ I have found to be very nice. I included a photo at 28mm f2.8 and at 75mm f2.8 to show that this copy appears quite sharp at both extremes when wide open. As always, stopping down improves sharpness even more. As for exterior condition, the lens is in good condition with no dings or scratches that I can find. There is no zoom creep on this copy unless you start shaking the lens up and down.

PS. For those who don't know, this lens is a full frame lens.

Fire me off a PM if you have any questions. Thanks,

Ryan

Franky, thanks for the heads up. I hadn't researched the prices over on Ebay. I would have appreciated a pm instead of a post on the sale thread though. I have not listed this price as 'firm', and it was chosen after I did a quick scan of some previous sold threads for this lens in the sold archive where it looked like quite a few started out at $350 or so. Also, the low profile UV filter included with the lens adds some value in my opinion (costs about $30 new).

Anyone looking for this lens feel free to fire me off a pm and we can discuss the price privately.

Thanks for looking!
