SOLD: Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 for Nikon

I purchased a Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 for Nikon mount on January 6 of this year. I am now selling this lens, because I would like to purchase a professional Nikkor lens close to that focal range. There is nothing wrong with this lens, and it has only been used on four photoshoots.

SOLD for $350 Shipped OBO

Condition: LN (Like New)

Cosmetic: Perfect, not even normal wear and tear because it was not used much.

Optics: The glass has zero scratches, no sign of dust, haze or fungus. Pristine condition.

Serial #: 020865

Includes:

- Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Lens with Built-In Motor for Nikon
- Lens Hood
- Caps
- Manuals
- Warranty Card
- Original Box



My feelings about this lens: This Tamron is so light for what it does, making it superb for traveling and an excellent mid-range zoom. It's extremely sharp and very professional, comparable to the Nikkor 28-70mm f/2.8D in performance. I am only selling it, because I'm selling all my third party lenses and have my eyes set on two professional Nikkor wide and mid-range zooms. Only gripe I have is that the Built-In Motor is not as fast as AF-S and can sometimes hunt for focus in low light, but that's usually what you get with third-party lenses. I'd be happy keeping this for years to come if I wasn't so interested in these Nikkors.

Here's a manufacturer's description and specs:

TAMRON 28-75mm XR DI with Built-In Motor for Nikon
(compatible with all Nikon DSLRs and most Nikon film SLRs)

The most compact and lightest in the history of fast zoom lenses. Thanks to the revolutionary downsizing "XR" technology employed by Tamron in the development of high-power zoom lenses such as the 28-200mm and 28-300mm, the dramatic compactness that makes this lens the world's smallest and lightest is achieved. Its compactness makes it look and feel like an ordinary standard zoom lens, yet the versatility that a fast constant maximum aperture offers will definitely reshape your photographic horizons.

Model A09
Lens Construction (Groups/Elements) 14/16
Angle of View 75-32
Diaphragm Blades 7
Minimum Aperture F/32
Minimum Focus Distance 0.33m (13") (entire zoom range)
Macro Magnification Ratio 1:3.9 (at 75mm)
Filter Diameter 67
Weight 510g (18.0oz., barely a pound)
Diameter x Length 73mmx 92mm
(2.9in x 3.6in)

I'll vouch for this lens! Most, if not all, of my best shots are with this lens.

Thanks!! bump for price drop! I can almost afford the Nikkor lens I am interested in, so I dropped the price of this lens a tad. It goes for $450 brand new on Ebay, but I'm selling it at loss, because I want to afford this Nikkor fast. My loss is your gain! This is practically a brand new lens, being only 3 months used.
