Testing the water a little.

Up for sale is my tamron 400mm f/4 with Tamron 2x tele and lowepro bag.

The lens was recently repaired and serviced by Alan Marlowe at a cost of 150 the aperture blades had become disconnected from the aperture lever.

The paint was not so good so I part covered it in carbon fibre affect vinyl.

Images below are with the 2x tele attached showing how sharp this lens is.

Unfortunately I don't have a KA adaptor but these are available on ebay.

As I said I am just testing the water for now 650 plus 25 RMSD payment via BACS

Hi Gary

Giving this a bump I am no longer shooting arena shows so no longer have a need for this beautiful piece of glass.

Many of the images in this article where shot using this lens from the very top tier of Leeds First Direct Arena showing how capable it is.

I was wondering what the weight of this piece of kit is. I don't think I'd want to carry it far.

It's 2.25 kg as it has its own straps attached it's actually not bad to cart around and balances well. I've carried around for a couple of hours without issue and when you stand it on its hood it's the right height to just pick up again
