Item Description
I'm thinning the herd and this Tamron, while darn nice and with very fast AF, is now redundant. So, in order to balance the books a bit, I am putting it up for sale. It's a great out-and-about lens with a nice reach but wide enough at the same time. I know folks rave about the 35-70 (and I have one and like it) but I found this lens to be much more useful because it is both wider and longer than the 35-70 and is very sharp.

It's in very good shape, comes with original hood, front cap, generic rear cap, and original box. Lens is clear, sharp and fast on my K-x which is where its been for the last year or so.

It's rated an 8.5 here on the forum by 10 reviewers:

Anyway, just thought I'd give you some moral support

Best bargain zoom out there.

This lens doesn't try to do too much by being larger aperture and compromised. at its modest apertures it gets sharp and stays sharp with very good contrast right from the start and holds its own from wide to long in the zoom range.

It's just a really practical lens to have, especially for outdoors. I use mine on both my film and digital SLR's.
