Tamron 18-250mm - Price reduced !!! Practically giving it away

All prices included shipping by USPS Priority mail and PayPal fees


$105 - Tamron A018 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 Di-II LD - I ended up with two of the same lens so I am selling one. Really nice lens with clear glass. Comes with both caps and hood. Purple Flower picture was taken with this lens at 180mm. Of the Super Zooms this is my second favorite behind the Sigma 18-300mm.

$65 - SMC Pentax-F 50mm f:1.7 lens - Sold

$55 - Kawanon 180mm F:3.5 lens - Sold

I'm curious how this lens compares in the 18-135 range with the DA18-135.

I've had both. The 18-135 is significantly better IMO. Edge/corner resolution is pretty similar but the 18-135 has better centre resolution and I much prefer the colours and overall rendering.

But that is not to disparage the Tamron 18-250mm, which is good for what it is - as a one-lens option for travel and general use. From about 24-50mm its resolution is particularly good, especially when stopped down.
32mm


47mm


Even at the long end, where resolution is weakest, it can still give some nice images. Here's one at 250mm (with a K-30):


Good luck with the sale @Dronegeek.

I have not had the pleasure of shooting a Pentax 18-135mm. The strength of this lens is versatility. I have taken shots outdoors like the butterfly shot below and had to press it into service at a friends wedding where there was not enough room to use my DA* 50-135mm. It has performed well in all the situations where I have used it.

this should have been snapped up some time ago. It is a "all-in-one" wonder.

it is for within america, else others probably make a run for this.
