For sale is used Tamron SP AF Aspherical XR Di IF 28-75mm f2.8 Macro 67 lens. Please note that Tamron made 3 different versions of this lens, and this is a first version with Aperture ring. It does not have built in motor. It does not have VR function.Filter rim size is 67mm. It comes with generic front and rear caps and generic hood. Cosmetic Condition: Lens has been used, it is in good cosmetic condition. It shows light wear on the lens barrel from use.
I don't see anything damaged. Rear and front glass elements are in good condition, I don't see any visible scratches on the front or rear glass surface. No fungus or haze inside.
It has no visible internal dust specs. Glass is in very good condition over all. I get aperture error from time to time. When I put lens on the camera sometimes camera does not read aperture. You have to wiggle and reattach the lens and then it seems to start working again.
But this is not the main issue. Lens is very soft at f2.8 (I have attached couple pictures made at f2.8, look at the pictures above). It seems to have some elements shifted or maybe they need realigning. It needs adjustment or repair.
Since most pictures I made are soft. Other then soft focus lens works. Aperture blades open and close properly. Aperture is snappy, blades are not slow. Focus is smooth and zoom is smooth.
