I am new to this board but have been on the photography on the net board for a while. Bought and sold several things there. I have the Tamron 28-75 f2.8 lens for sale. I have had this lens a little over a year. I think I am going to go with a longer reach walkaround lens and some primes, eventually to go with a new camera body. I bought this lens off ebay and sent it in right away to an authorized service center. They tightened up the zoom, cleaned and calibrated. The lens cap shows a little wear but nothing else. It's clean and in great shape. Works perfectly. I have gotten some really great results with this lens. Outright sale price is $285. Includes shipping and paypal.
