Tamron 17-50

1. TAMRON 28-75 Aspherical LD XR DI SP $185 - SOLD

2. Tamron 17-50 $50 (bad DIY fix but works great)
My first lens. Bought used and worked great.

At some point its zoom started to get stuck. It's a known problem when some bolt inside gets loose. I tried to perform an DIY fix and fixed the issue. BUT after the fix - it extends to 45mm only. It worked great otherwise, and I haven't tried to fix that.
