Aftermarket screw in metal 112mm lens cap for front. Original, thin green canvas Tamron lens bag, leatherette hard case for the 140F and a worn but still very functional Domke super telephoto lens bag included.

I'm sorry to read about the circumstances necessitating the sale, @steamloco76

I'm a big fan of this lens. Not only is it fast and sharp - I have no qualms shooting wide open - but aberrations are decently controlled and the lens handles nicely for its size and weight, better than a 300/2.8 IMO.

I bought it to use for birding and wildlife, which is a perfect match for the lens. This one is really excellent in low, flat light wide open. Iíve surprised myself with some of the images. Alas, I find myself having to stay close to home due to my wifeís mobility issues and mine too. The Tamron just doesnít get used like it should. I added the 140F converter and it does not degrade the image. Makes a really fine 560mm f/5.6.

I'm also sorry to read about the circumstances. I too own this hard to find lens. I use it with both my Pentax K-3 and Nikon D300s. Yours looks like it is in nice condition. I use my Pentax AF 1.7x teleconverter and it works great. Good luck on your sale.

Less than 3,000 copies of this lens were made. Full frame. Works equally well on digital or film bodies. The included 140F teleconverter is fairly uncommon too and works with all Adaptall-2 normal-telephoto lenses.

Bump for an excellent birding and wildlife lens and teleconverter. Also listed on eBay at a higher price.

I will ship to CANADA for the extra amount OVER the $50 postage I've included in the price of my lens. The package weighs 12lbs and is 18in L x 9in H x 12in W. The ADDITIONAL postage with $850 insurance will be between $76 and $90 depending on mainland Canada postal code. Buyer pays additional postage. The ONLY service available (due to COVID 19) is US Priority Mail International Express 3 to 5 business day.
Thanks for looking!
