The photo is not a K-mount lens (nor is it for Canon as the listing says). The photo is of a Nikon F-mount...

The same lens was sold by Tamron and Pentax (as the DA 18-250). But K-mount version usually cost more than that...

It would work without an adapter if it were for Pentax. The lens in the photo is for Nikon.

Hard to say. The description in the add is all over the place, to the extent that it describes at least two different lenses. If it's the one written in the boldest typeface, "Exellent-!! Tamron B003 AF 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di-II VC for Canon ", definitely not.
I'd either stay away or ask the seller in advance to be more specific, just so you have a reasonable expectation of what you'd be getting.

thanks all, I'll ask the poster what lens mount it is for. I just looked a little further down it does say for canon. I think he has more than one listing going at the same time. Glad I checked in here first. I'm learning.

Look what I dug up and I just contacted the seller
