[SOLD] FS: Tamron SP 28-75, 16mm Zenitar and budget 77mm LTD

Ok so I am looking to fund a gear purchase and as I have hardly used my small format stuff lately some of this is going to the block.

Tamron XR Di SP 28-75mm 2.8 - used but in great shape - $300 shipped in the USA [B]Sold[B]

Zenitar 16mm - Used in good shape, pretty clean a couple small marks on the barrel glass is clean, one dust spot on the inside which I suspect was there from the factory. New these are going for about $200 shipped new these days so I am asking $150 shipped OBO -Sold

Bargin 77mm LTD silver- Ok here is the deal with this lens. I bought two "junk" 77mm lenses and was able to put together one working lens from the two. The issue is that the filter ring was severely dented. to fix this I was able to remove the old filter ring and retaining ring without causing additional damage. I ordered the parts to fix it but they were damaged in shipping (they were shipped to my home and then damed in being shipped to me at school) and I never got around to reordering them. The cost for the parts was about $40 shipped. So all this means that the trim ring and filter ring still need to be replaced. Without these the shade slides off the front as the filter ring holds it in place. The hood is also dented but perfectly functional. I believe it would cost about another $40 to replace the hood as well, I had opted to let it go. So here is the deal new with the rebate these are about $580, the one I checked here used was $550. I am asking $375 shipped for this lens as is, which means that after ordering the parts you are looking at a total of $415 or if you want to change the hood $455.

Edit: A little clarification on the 77, what I mean by put together a working lens is that one of them was damaged and the other was partially disassembled, had a dented filter ring, hood and the AF focus drive gears were stripped. I replaced the focus drive with the one from the more damaged lens and put the lens back together.

Edit again: I was able to get the damaged filter ring on the 77 to fit on the lens. This means that the hood is now attached and the lens is more usable as is. I would still recommend getting a replacement but it can be used easily as is now (without filters).

Sorry about the quality on some of these I forgot my camera was set to ISO 3200.

One note is that the Tamron rear cap shown on the 77 will be included with the Tamron.

Update: Tamron is sold, a few people have asked me about the 77 but no one has committed yet. If anyone is interested in the Zenitar let me know.
