Item Description
This lens will come with a free Kenko 77mm Pro1 Digital Clear Protector filter that has no scratches or marks with original filter case.

I am selling a used Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 Macro lens in K-mount for Pentax. The serial number is 002504. It is optically excellent with no scratches or fungus. Cosmetically this lens is also in excellent condition with only a small scratch on the mount from original owner I originally bought from. I take exceptional care of all the gear I own and have filters for all of my lenses.

This lens will come with necessary original papers, original Tamron pouch, and original boxing. It will also come with original front cap, rear cap, and hood.

I did disassemble the front element of this lens to clean the dust inside, but have never physically touched the optics. I've only used my Giottos Rocket Blower to blow off the dust stuck on the elements. The lens works optically dead-on as good as when I didn't disassemble it in the first place.

I am hoping to go back to my DA* 50-135. I feel like something's really missing without that lens, it's like my K-7's soul mate.

Here is a image I've taken after removing dust out of the front elements. Wide open at f/2.8

Here is an AF Speed test of the Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 on my K-7. It is quite fast due to the K-7's AF motor being the strongest of all Pentax.
