Tamron AF 70-300 f4-5.6 LD Macro (1:2) FULL FRAME Lens - Reduced!

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Tamron AF 70-300 f4-5.6 LD Macro (1:2) FULL FRAME Lens

Asking Price
75.00 USD

Item Location
Central Texas (United States)

Item Description
I'm kinda torn about selling this lens - I also have the Pentax DA 55-300 and it's a toss-up. Image quality is about the same, the DA has slightly more range but the Tamron is a 1:2 macro. The kicker is that the Tamron is a FF lens and I have no intention of going that route so will keep the DA.

Now, as to the Tamron - as stated it's a Full Frame lens and has a 1:2 macro range. Overall it's in Excellent condition - no mold, hazing or fungus - and virtually no dust. Aperture blades are clean, clear and snappy. Cosmetically there's almost no sign of use - some very minor scuffs - even the included hood is virtually unmarked.

Comes with original hood, original front lens cap and after-market rear cap.

Asking $75 which includes PayPal fees and shipping to the lower 48. Figure an additional $10-20 for overseas.

I thought I'd add this photo I took early this AM. Yep, I did some post processing - but there's a 1.5x Kenko TC attached and it is hand held. I just want to show the capabilities of this lens.

Per request, I'm adding several photos taken at 300mm - the first 2 at f8, Josie at f6.7 and the Plumeria at f11. Also, all were taken at exposure compensation level -1 (I forgot to change it after another session). Only Post Processing done was to resize for posting.
