"Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 Macro / Better Than New!" Fri 11-Jun-10 11:46 AM by reuben

Purchased new from Adorama approx. 6 months ago. It took 3 trips to Tamron and most of that time for Tamron to get the correct parts from Japan to properly correct the front focusing problem the lens had. During that time I was commited to a couple of shoots and had to buy a used Nikon 70-200 at more than twice the price. The third time was the charm and the lens is now perfect and every bit as sharp as the Nikon... plus it is smaller, lighter, and focuses closer at less than half the price. What it doesn't have is VR and I've really gotten used to that so I am keeping the Nikon. Price is $600.00 and that includes everything as it came from Adorama Plus the ''tune-up'' from Tamron and shipping anywhere in the Conus. Lens is perfect and better than new. Prefer paypal.
