Tamron 28-75 BGN at Keh for $266 shipped
Posted By: seventysixersfan, 07-18-2013, 03:07 PM

KEH is offering a Tamron 28-75mm with caps and hood, in bargain condition, at $265 -- with free shipping for the next three days -- and $1 for shipping insurance. It includes Keh's 6 month used warranty. I almost pulled the trigger on it but I really can't justify adding yet another lens right now, especially since I'm saving up my pennies for the Sigma 18-35 f/1.8 and a new WR camera body sometime in 2014.

But this lens is apparently supersharp and a great wedding/portrait zoom lens. Has a reputation for some FF/BF issues, along with plasticky build quality and loud AF noise, but for $266 with 6 months warranty, it may be a no-brainer for someone who has a camera body that can do AF-adjustment.

So... someone please buy this lens so I don't have further temptations over the weekend. My wife and wallet will thank you:

Nice pick up, cliffshots. I think it was smart to jump on it. Sometimes KEH will offer something at a price better than you see elsewhere, and if it something I want I buy it. Shipping is about $12, usually, which many times is still less than you'd pay elsewhere with less peace of mind. DON'T wait for free shipping - the good stuff will be long gone.
