Tamron SP 60B 300mm f2.8 kit w/wo ULTRARARE 200F converter EXC (worldwide) REDUCED!

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Tamron SP 60B 300mm f2.8 kit with ULTRARARE 200F converter EXC (worldwide)

Asking Price
1,295.00 USD

Item Location
Kearney, NE (United States)

Item Description




See photos of the actual kit below. Click on any photo to see it a 1028 pixels wide.

A "pro" lens that needs no introduction. The Tamron SP 60B 300mm f2.8 is one of the finest manual focus optics you will find at the focal length/ratio and with Tamron's Adaptall2 system has the add'l advantage of being usable on multiple camera mounts. These are rarely offered in such fine condition.

The 60D features Low Dispersion glass, a rotatable tripod foot, & strap hooks. On a Pentax (or Canon) DSLR this lens will give you an effective 450mm field of view at f2.8. With the included 140F teleconverter it becomes an effective 630mm field of view at f4. With the included 200F teleconverter it becomes an effective 900mm f5.6. Try to find that kind of versatility in any lens currently available. I wager you won't even come close at 4 or 5 times the price of this kit.

This lens is particularly prized among birders and even astrophotographers. Some examples found on Flickr: Tamron Adaptall-2 SP 300mm f2.8 model 60B lens - a set on Flickr

In addition to the lens you will find a COMPLETE complement of accessories in the beautiful (original) Tamron kit case:
  • 112mm Tamron filter to protect the pristine front optical element
  • Tamron bayonet mount hood
  • Original protective lens cap (covers hood diameter)
  • TWO drop in filter drawers, each with a 43mm filter
  • Pentax KM Adaptall2
  • Aftermarket Canon EF Adaptall
  • Tamron 140F : A special 1.4x teleconverter made especially for Tamron long lenses including the 60B
  • ULTRARARE Tamron 200F: A special 2.0x teleconverter made especially for Tamron long lenses including the 60B
  • SunwayFoto DPG-120D - An Arca-Swiss compatible long foot which allows for better balance adjustment





























Note: This lens works as an "A" lens with a PK/A Adaptall mount (not included). Otherwise it works as an "M" lens (metering at your chose aperture with your green button).

This kit is offered worldwide to Pentax Forum members with NO NEGATIVE FEEDBACK (no New Members, please). Insurance is required. I will quote the actual shipping and insurance amount to your shipping address (serious only, please).

$1295 (plus actual shipping/insurance) via Paypal (I pay all fees) for the entire kit.
I would accept $895 (plus actual shipping/insurance) for the entire kit, minus the 200F converter.
I would also consider a DA* 200mm f2.8 plus cash. (No other trade offers, please).

I would remove the 200F from the kit and sell it separately (the last one sold on eBay for a buy it now price of $450) if someone is interested in the kit without the 200F.
Total price also reduced to $1295.00 (including the 200F).

If someone would prefer this superb kit without the 200F converter, the price is $895 plus shipping and insurance.

I use my 60B with the Pentax-F 1.7x AF TC and it rocks, the AF is super fast and I love the IQ. Good luck with the sale!

Incredibly, this superb kit is still available.


Winter is lens acquisition time. Use this lens on the bird feeder now and then really unleash it in the spring.

How does the smaller TC compare to the Tammy AF TC?
