TAMRON SP 300mm F2.8 (Japan ebay) - US$388 + Ship
Posted By: Pentaxians, 10-31-2018, 01:08 AM

For those who's interested: US$388 + shipping from Japan

AS-IS TAMRON SP 300mm F2.8 LD 60B Pentax K Mount Telephoto Lens from Japan | eBay


There are some dust specks and slight scratches inside the lens.
There is a insect garbage on the middle element, which might affect image quality or resolution.
There are faint fungus on the edge of the front element, which is being visible under the strong light and will have no affect on the image quality.

It seemed to have no affect on the image quality at least in general use. (It could do against the sun or string lights).

This belongs in my thread not price watch

The worst of Craigslist/Shopgoodwill/eBay etc. -

I'm actually surprised it's being sold as-is and not EX+++

I wonder if they would separate that Palm Rest and sell it to me, I've always wanted one of those, Great Idea, more big telephotos should come with them standard.

So...... A wonderful thing happened here. A very generous PentaxForum's member contacted me, and said he had an offer I couldn't refuse. George is in NY , the opposite side of the planet from me, He said, he used to have that lens, but no longer does, BUT, he had the palm-rest still, and he would send it to me. And he did, no reward or payment, he posted it to me here in Australia.

Truly a wonderful gesture, that has made me want to say. Thank you George.

Thank you George. It's always wonderful to hear of someone doing something kind that goes above & beyond the call of duty. Also cmohr, hope you enjoy the palm rest. Nice story to hear about on our Thanksgiving weekend.
