Anyone interested in a Tamron 180 SP f2.5?

Have just booked some flights for a family trip next year and think I may need to prune my lens collection a little more in order to pay for them....

This lens is a stunner and will work in all the AE modes if you have a PKA adapter. Rumoured to be possibly the sharpest lens Tamron ever made, it's a real collectors item as only 3,500 were ever made.

Build quality is absolutely top-notch - all metal - and the lens comes with its original hood, caps and case.

In excellent condition, and everything working as it should. It shows very minor signs of wear but I don't think you'd find a better one unless it had basically sat in a cupboard.

The last one of these on Ebay went for nearly 500, but that seems a little excessive to me. I'd be looking for 325 for the lens, or 375 including a PKA adapter. Prices are for bank transfer and exclude PayPal fees and postage (it is not that light, so I would anticipate postage being the region of 10-15).

I can add or send photos if people are interested. Let me know.

Should add that the prices mentioned above also include a Hoya Pro 1 77mm UV filter - which has been on the lens since I bought it, and is worth quite a lot by itself!

More information and reviews of this lens can be found via the following link. The price is an absolute steal for such a great lens so snap it up quickly before I stick it on EBay!
