Item Description
This is the Tamron 70-200/2.8 (IF) LD Di SP Macro.

It comes with the carrying pouch, as shown on pictures below.
It does not come with its original box and there are no papers either as this is how I received it when originally purchased.

I had bought this lens (used) here at the Market Place a couple of years ago, hoping to use it often because I wanted to fill a gap between my primes (at 15, 31, 43, 85mm) and my telephoto lens at 300mm.
It turned out that it hasn't been used more than a couple of dozen times, at most.

Cosmetically, I can give it a 9 out of 10.

It is very sharp, precise and what I would overall consider an excellent copy of this lens.
On my K5, the AF is snappy and shows no back/front focusing.

I have just taken some pics today, at different focal lengths and apertures, and they are posted in my Flickr account here:
Tamron 70-200/2.8 SP Di (LD) Macro - a set on Flickr
Note: images were posted in (a) original but downsized 50 percent before uploaded to Flickr and (b) 100 cropped versions to show details for the Pixel Peepers !
Those images will be deleted from Flickr once the lens is sold.

You may also want to check the Pentax Forum review(s) of this lens: Tamron 70-200mm F2.8 Di LD Macro Lens Reviews - Tamron Lenses - Pentax Lens Review Database

For those considering the purchase, please keep in mind that it is big and heavy, albeit quite easy to carry "in my books" (I don't have a problem with large/bulky lenses).
