To fund recent purchases I have my Tamron SP AF 90mm F2.8 Di Macro up for sale. I have enjoyed using it a lot around the garden. It's been very dependable and the sharpness and colours have been nothing but great. I know that it is a popular lens and tbh I've only heard good thins from owners.

Asking price is £215 excluding shipping from the Netherlands which I will round down to £10 for Britain and EU. Payment by bank transfer (euro account) or PayPal (price is net to me).

I will add photos later this week but I can tell you the lens looks great and come with original front cap, generic rear cap, original hood and a (imo tacky) Tamron pouch that comes with this lens

Thanks for looking and if you have any questions let me know.

Here are some detailed photo’s.

1.No scratch to be seen. I did notice some paint chipping: gold coming through where it should be black around the distance window. No idea how that is possible, that area is slightly recessed.



2. Clean glass



3. I like to thoroughly check my lenses before sale and I can see minuscule dust particles in the lens but I can’t photograph them.



4. Underside in indistinguishable from new.



5. Clean mount



6. Photo Helleborus taken earlier this year with K30



7. Photo bud taken last year with K-x



This lens has given me nothing but joy. Naturally it is sharp and has a lovely bokeh. I have mostly Pentax lenses because I like the colour rendition of Pentax best. This is the only non-Pentax lens which I have of have had of which I actually like the colour rendition.

And of course there are a lot of user reviews here:

Provisionally sold.

Side note: I was a bit surprised with the lack of interest for this great lens.
