Bump for a great lens! Underappreciated due to the reviews that correctly complain about the slow-ass way Nikon and Canon bodies autofocus using this lens.

Highly recommended in Pentax mount. It would be one of the last lenses I would sell.

Agreed Eljamoquio. I think it is quick focusing. It is very sharp and very beautiful as far as rendering. It's resolving power is very high also. Colors are similar to Pentax's. This and the DA*55 are my best lenses.

Yes. It is on the box. This is not the new version that they have made (because they haven't made it for Pentax). This has the LD glass though. This is the latest model that Tamron has made for Pentax.

Yes, this has the LD glass. This is truly one of my 2 favorite lenses for Pentax (the other is the 43mm limited). The bokeh is amazing IMO. Regret selling this, but it's time to move on.

I believe at one time you also had the Sigma 70-200. How did they compare?

The Sigma had a faster AF and was the go to lens for sports - you would miss fewer shots. In terms of sharpness, the edge goes to the Tammy.

I started a post saying that mine was not "DL", but I checked again and it is "DL".
Nonetheless, it is one heck of a sharp lens, although a tad heavy.
For me, it's a keeper!

Thanks, I read the description in the post and obviously didn't look at the box at all.

It is lighter compared to the rest of the 70-200 2.8s though.
