Hi all

Having purchased a Tamron 17-50 on here I have to offload the above.

Photos will follow tomorrow.

Obvious cosmetic signs of use, some of the lettering has rubbed off.

Optically fine. A few specks of dust that do not affect image quality.

Purchased here for 80 without a hood. I have added a genuine Sigma hood, but it is a generic rear cap. Original Sigma lens hood and an alternative provided.

No original box.

If you check my portfolio my recent shots (Sigma/Tamron lens on the EXIF) have been taken with this lens.

How about 100 including postage? The hood cost 20.

Many thanks

I should add that if there is interest I can only post on a Saturday because of working hours and location!

Lens & Sigma Hood received today, well-packed & in good condition - seems pretty good & useful after playing with a bit on the K-30. Will have to do something about the hood though because it's a very loose fit (that WILL be sorted!)

Probably use it in place of the 18-135 when I don't need the weather sealing.

Many thanks

K-3 II, K-3 and a K-70 from SRS (having now relegated the K-30 with the Hacked K-50 f/w to being a backup body) , & some Sigma and Pentax lenses (and a lot of old 35mm gear!)

Sorted!
3x strips of the very thin (2mm wide) edge part (i.e. no actual hooks/eyes) of a length of self-adhesive Velcro mounted on strategic parts of the inner edge of the hood bayonet fitting. Feels quite a firm fit now, and can hope it lasts (or replace it if it does not).
