Tamron 70-200mm F2.8 Di LD Macro

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Tamron 70-200mm F2.8 Di LD Macro

Asking Price
160.00 USD

Item Location
New Berlin, WI (United States)

Item Description
I was able to enjoy this lens only a few time before i dropped it from approximately 2 feet with the body attached to it.

The zoom ring is now stuck and the focusing ring is difficult to turn.

This lens is from Japan and is therefore a grey market lens. Tamron doesn't want to repair grey market lenses, and KEH cannot repair it because they can't get any parts from Tamron.

If you have any idea who would be able to repair it please send me a pm. Otherwise this lens is for sale, as is.

It's cosmetically perfect and comes with caps, pouch, paperwork and box. No visible dust inside.

No one has attempted to repair it. It doesn't sound like anything is loose inside. I do not know what it would take to repair it.

Please make an offer.

Thanks.

Have you tried Digi-Service in Bulgaria? They have awesome Youtube videos showing reviews of both Pentax and Tamron gear:

digi-service.eu

No personal experience with them though.

EDIT: The zoom ring is stuck! NOT the focusing ring.

Might want to check out ebay and see if someone is selling one for parts only. If the zoom works on the one being sold, chances are the parts would be ok for use on yours. Just a thought...
