[SOLD] FS - Mint Cond. Tamron 28-75 f2.8

Lens Sold to Stoosh - Thank you

Call me crazy, but I just received this lens today from egordon, and while it is minty and takes a very nice picture, I didn't expect or didn't prepare for how large the lens actually is. After some very thorough testing tonight taking all of about 50 pics of my son, as much as I thought the zoom would be ideal due to zoom versatility, I just find that I'm still preferring the 43 limited to anything else, and constantly keep reaching for it over anything else.

This was supposed to replace my 31, 43, 77 trio, but quite honestly I think what trying it has done is shown me that I've become a one lens man with the 43.

Comes with Minty Lens, original caps, hood, box (minus UPC symbol) and paperwork. Also has a nice hoya UV filter on. Filter needs cleaning, but lens glass is nice and clean.

Willing to send it out for $275.00 shipped (in US) via fedex ground insured. Outside of US price will depend on shipping costs and location.

Paypal preferred.

Please PM or email me.

$290 shipped USPS priority mail to Sydney Australia. Price based on fact that I had estimated around $10 via fedex ground, and USPS offers around $30 for priority international.

Let me know if interested, and with paypal tonight I can drop off at the post office tomorrow.

PM me for paypal addy if you want it.

Hehehe, Buddha Jones & Igilligan, I already sold the 31 and 77 a few weeks back. The 43 is a keeper though. I'm just loving it for so many uses. I guess I should just stop looking at alternatives and just accept that I pretty much go to this lens for most of the shots I do, and the kit lens fills in pretty much anything else I'm needing these days.
