Nope, not sure what is broken. I wasnít able to touch base with the guy who sends the lenses to the manufacturer, just a message about what it would cost. I am considering the Pentax 100. I didnít love the Tamron, not sure why, itís a great lens. Thanks for you response!

Thank you!! I will look into and consider this one as well. I could see the reason for the complaints, I didnít like the push pull selector personally.

Thank you very much for this offer! They sent it to the manufacturer and I donít know what is broken. Iíll get in touch if I make an alternative plan that might require a donor lens. Thanks again!

youíre right! I think Iím going to forgo the repair, $400 just seems too steep. Now I just need to be on the lookout for a used one. Iím also considering the Pentax 100/f2.8. I canít seem to find the tamron for sale now. Iím bad at maneuvering the forums haha. Thank you for your reply and advice!

Thank you everyone for the responses and advice. I think Iím going to forgo repairing it, put the 50 bucks towards something and be in the lookout for a used D-FA 100/2.8 macro. Thank you!!!!

I feel like I posted this under the wrong topic, so Iím reposting it here. Delete if not allowed. Iím pretty bent out of shape right now, due to an unfortunate event involving my mischievous feline friend(not currently my friend) my tamron sp af 90mm f/2.8 di macro got damaged. I took it to the local camera shop, they sent it to the manufacturer and quoted me $400 to repair it. I bought it used on here a few years back and canít remember what I paid, I wanna say it was around 200. I take photos of jewelry for an Instagram account and mostly use my Pentax 50 macro, but liked having the Tamron. My dilemma is the store took a non-refundable $50 deposit, which I can apply to anything else in store if I decide not to go ahead with the lens repair. Should I bite the bullet and fix the damaged tamron? Look for another used tamron? Consider a different macro lens? Someone who has more camera knowledge than me please help me sort out this dilemma. Thanks for your time!

COMPLETE Newbie/Beginner - Question About Tamron AF 90mm Macro f/2.8 Di SP

I am completely new to the the DSLR world, but very much looking forward to learning and exploring. I am the recent owner of a KS2 and am looking to find a macro lens, which I found my options are the Tamron or Pentax 100mm. I am interested in the Tamron for budget reasons and have found one eBay, but the pictures are not great - it says it is for Pentax, but there is probably no way to tell really without a clear picture of the mount, right? I am hesitant to buy because I do not want to get stuck with something that will not work for my camera. I am also not sure if I am allowed to post links to eBay listings. Thank you for any advice or direction you experts can offer - and for listening to a complete newbie/beginner.
