Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 Di

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 Di

Asking Price
399.00 USD

Item Location
Dallas (United States)

Item Description
I'd posted the lens earlier, but it was returned (my mistake). I had barely used this lens since I got it (I was in serious LBA mode) and I completely forgot the history of this lens. It had been dropped in water and was repaired by themselves, not Tamron. There is evidence of the water and the repair. To me, and I'm far from being an expert, the photos it takes look fine. Judge for yourself, before you buy.

Original Box, Case, hood, both end caps and a UV filter are included.

Images of the lens and samples:

I am the one who sold takhyon this lens originally. I purchased it from kenafein who had it professionally cleaned. Unfortunately I cannot access the original post from where he explained who cleaned it..I think it was Eric/Erik (not sure of the spelling). The lens performed flawlessly for me prior to me selling it and I am sure it worked the same for takhyon!

Hi,

I am a little confused. You are selling it as is, but it seems that it is working fine, albeit has some 'history'.
I also see some spots on the front element (or are these reflections?). Are there any other issues either of you noticed
with the lens?
