Tamron 17-50 SP AF DI II f/2.8 Zoom

Item for Sale
Tamron 17-50 SP AF DI II f/2.8 Zoom

Asking Price
- 315 USD shipped

Item Location
Nebraska (United States)

Item Description
Tamron 17-50 2.8 - This is an extremely good lens. It has been absolutely wonderful in my experience. It is sharp from 2.8 up, renders good bokeh, and is contrasty and wonderful with colors like Pentax lenses. This copy is in near mint condition (everything is extremely clean), focus required no adjustment on my K5, and has had a Hoya HMC 67mm filter (included) on it. I am the second owner, and purchased it from the forum. It comes with original box (also in perfect condition), original hood, caps, and Hoya HMC 67 filter.
I am selling it because I wanted a WR lens for my K5 and I had planned on getting the DA 55*, but didn't and purchased the Sigma 50 1.4. I am looking for the 18-55 WR (would take partial trade and $210 for an excellent condition one).

Price of $315 (shipped in the US) reflects price for the lens, filter, and insurance shipping via USPS in the US. I will not sell this internationally to someone without good feedback on the forum. PM me for international rates (if you have good feedback).

Some pictures I took with this lens will demonstrate how well it really is on the K5 (of my daughter) and the K-X (building and sand vase)!

Thanks, I thought the big three comparison was a sham where this rated lower because of screw drive auto focus and that it didn't 'feel' as pro as the Pentax 16-50 and the sigma 17-50. I would love a Pentax for the weather sealing, but its high fail rate only lost a few points, and its auto focus rated higher than the Tamron's? I would rather have a fast screw drive than a yearly $300 bill for a silent motor. I've absolutely been thrilled with all 3 Tamrons I've owned. I've shot thousands of pictures of my daughter and all my favorites came from Tamrons. I wished they made the 60mm macro f/2 for Pentax. This 17-50 is a gem, I wouldn't sell it it had weather sealing.
