[SOLD] FS: Tamron 80-200 f2.8 SP & KA mount

In very nice shape, with only a small amount of wear. Glass is in perfect shape, aperture blades clean, free and snappy. Comes with tripod mount, both caps, lens shade, hard case and Pentax KA mount. All in very nice shape!

The lens has a huge zoom/focus ring that is well dampened and is nice to use. I usually use this lens on a monopod for sports in A or M mode. Images are sharp but wide open in high contrast there is some CA, typical of older lenses.

Price is $350 + shipping which I have not figured out yet. I can take paypal but prefer not because of the fees that go with it. However if you are willing to cover fees to expedite the lens, let me know.

ahh too bad you live in the US, or I would jump on this one.

Now I would have to pay a lot extra for VAT etc...

Good luck with the sale!

I did forget to mention that this is a manual focus from the days before AF. Also, this has the interchangeable Adaptall II mount that allows the lens to be fitted to canon/nikon/contax and many others of the 70's. I *assumed* everyone knew it was manual because of the lens mount.

Also, there is a sale pending (and a few others seem to be serious).

Thank you all for looking!
