Tamron SP 90mm macro (#172E, not Di) *Price drop!*

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Tamron SP 90mm macro (#172E, not Di)

Asking Price
$275us

Item Location
Oregon (United States)

Item Description
Yes, another macro lens on the block.
I was waiting for the others to clear off the owners' shelves but just when I'm ready to post another comes up for sale!
My kit would be better matched up if I had a 35 or 50mm macro, so I'm allowing my best lens to go up for sale.

This lens is in excellent condition with no optical or mechanical issues. The previous owner did not include the hood; since the front element is very recessed I did not seek one out. Caps and box are included.

This is model #172E, made just prior to the Di coatings. I have yet to find any flare issues in macro or non-macro images. I have read reports of CA being an issue with Tamron 90s, including on this site; my copy shows very little of it. I've taken torture-test shots that led to selling off lenses that I really wanted to like (e.g. the DA 18-135!).. the CA control on this lens is excellent.

$275us plus $10 shipping in the USA; for other buyers we'll visit the USPS International page and agree on a shipping price.
No paypal fee, but feel free to chip in.
