Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 XR - less than 2 mths old

Asking Price
$320 AU including postage in AU

Item Location
Newcastle (Australia)

Item Description
I've only had this lens since April the 22nd, it was brand new then and still looks brand new. I have used it literally 5 or 6 times, most of those inside, all the time with a UV filter, once outside with a polarising filter, as I was using it for landscapes.
No particular reason for selling except that I'm going a different way with focal lengths. This lens is really stunning, I am NOT joking when I say that this lens is the sharpest zoom I've used when stopped down past f3.5. f2.8 is perfectly acceptable too, but f4.0 or so produces printable results even of 100% crops... It's actually UNNECESSARILY sharp (see pics, and reviews back me up on this - although the 100% crop of my son seems to suggest that I got a crazy sharp copy).

I forgot to include the hood in the photos - that wasn't deliberate, I just couldn't be bothered taking the pics again when I realised it didn't have the hood in these photos - the HOOD IS INCLUDED, as is EVERYTHING it came with new, including an immaculate condition box, all paper work and even the Tamron bag thing that the lens comes wrapped in, and an anti-moisture satchel thing.

Photos say the rest - as I said, like new condition without a doubt.

POSTAGE IN AUSTRALIA is INCLUDED no charge - so the TOTAL in Australia is only $320 there will however be a $10 charge for Paypal.
Bank deposit accepted and preferred.
Overseas please message me for a postage price.
Enjoy the pics and please note, what looks like dust on the front element is just tiny spots of light from my window beind reflected - the front element is entirely clean, as is the rear element - like I said, just like new!
