Tamron 28-75 2.8 Macro

Item Description
I purchased this lens here on the forums about 2-3 years ago for probably 325 dollars. I grabbed it because I wanted the ability to shoot inexpensively from 28mm-200mm @ f2.8. This lens served that exact purpose. The condition was never mint, and there were a few rub marks on the barrel etc.. But the optics were always good.
I've owned all the FA ltd's and so called best Pentax glass. While this lens was never at that level, it was never too far behind. It isn't the fastest focusing lens in its class BUT, I've always gotten great results with it and it was on my K5 90% of the time. In daylight it was just as fast at focusing as anything else....

I went through LBA and bought everything thinking it was what I would use. In the end...without the ability to be at f/2.8 through my complete collection was a handicap for shooting indoor sports, dance etc...

This lens gives you the ability to do that for 275 bucks. I just bought the 24-70 Canon version for almost 2000. So this is a steal.

I do not have a box, it was never provided to me with my purchase so its just the lens, hood and caps.

I will only accept PP. We can discuss the fees if you are interested. I have 100% feedback and have been selling/buying/posting here for years.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?
