[SOLD] Tamron AF70-300mm F/4-5.6 LD Di 1:2 Lens

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Tamron AF70-300mm F/4-5.6 LD Di 1:2 Lens

Asking Price
$115.00

Item Description
This is an excellent copy of this lens. It's very sharp, edge-to-edge, and focuses accurately on my K10D. I'm selling because I've decided to simplify my kit. I've recently purchased a Pentax DA 55-300mm to go with my my DA 16-45, so no longer need this Tamron. Three example photos taken with this lens are in the Pentax Photo Gallery. They are titled "Electrified", "Splash of Color", and "American Lady". Here's the link:

PPG -- Scott Miller

I'm very particular about my photo equipment; this lens has been well cared for. It's already put back in the original packaging along with the original paperwork that came with it. I will take care to protect and package it well for shipment.

Sample with Teleconverter

This lens works nicely with the Promaster 1.7x teleconverter too. Here's a sample taken at 300mm + 1.7x teleconverter for 510mm (35mm equivalent -- 765mm).

Great shot. What camera did you use? I have this lens and I love it. This is a great way to get some reach.

Thanks! This was taken with a K10D mounted on a sturdy tripod.

Did you have SR on or off? If you can remember.

SR Definitely Off....used the 2-second timer (mirror-lockup) which turns off SR, even if the switch is in the on position. This was shot raw and processed a moderate amount, including a combination of deconvolution and unsharp mask sharpening. The sharpening wouldn't have worked well though, had the detail not been there to start with. FWIW, it printed very nicely at 10x14 and is hanging on my office wall.

IMHO, the most difficult thing about this setup is getting the focus perfect. When you do, the detail is there.

In my experience, carrying those stuffed animals in place is where most of my energy is spent.

Again, great shot and thanks for the info.
