    I am looking at buying the Tamron SP AF 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di-II VC LD Aspherical (IF) Lens and I am seeing a price difference of 110 bucks less than B&H and thats after a mail in rebate with B&H, which seems quite a bit. 2 questions:

    These are the same two lenses, correct? Tamron and all there abbreviations!

    Is Tristate Camera a good company (based in NY)


    B&H Photo - 579.00 (after 70.00 mail in rebate)
    Tamron SP AF 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di-II VC LD AFB005C700 - B&H Photo

    TriState Camera - 469.00 Free Shipping (no rebate)

    I was hoping that someone could look and make sure they are the same lens. I see the one at Tristate says macro, but the other doesnt say anything about macro. The reviews I have read don't say anything about macro either.

    yea, they market it as a macro.
    Mine is labeled that way (only with promaster name, not Tamron, but it's the same lens)

    Never used Tri-State but besides Amazon.com B&H is where I do most of my buying from adorama.com after them. So I would trust B&H I have always had top notch service from them on both new and used gear
