Tamron AF 28-300mm / 3.5-6.3 XR Di LD Aspherical (IF) Macro

It is a Nikon mount, and will fit on FujiFilm S2 Pro, S3, S5, and pretty much all digital Nikon cameras and most of Nikon film cameras. It is in pretty much perfect shape, no scratches, moisture, or fungus on the lenses (front and back). It comes with a UV filter, circular polarizer, front and back lense caps, and a sun hood. The lens was made in Japan. I'm shotting mostly landscape pictures now, so I don't really need this lense anymore. The retail price for this is about $400 without the UV filter and circular polarizer. I'm asking for $250 shipped.


The Tamron SP AF 28-300/3.5-6.3 XR Di LD Aspherical (IF) Macro is a general purpose lens for both digital and film cameras. On a film camera the 28-300mm range covers everything from landscapes through portraits to wildlife. On a typical APS-C digital camera, it has the same field of view as a 45-480mm lens would on a full frame 35mm camera.

The Tamron SP AF28-300/3.5-6.3 XR Di LD Aspherical (IF) Macro is a Tamron "Di" lens. Di lenses designed with digital SLRs in mind and Tamron say that they have higher resolution, better control of flare and ghosting, less light fall-off and lower chromatic aberration than earlier designs. Note that the Tamron SP AF28-300/3.5-6.3 XR Di LD Aspherical (IF) Macro lens, although designated as digital ("Di") has full frame 35mm coverage. It can be used both on APS-C sensor DSLRs and on full frame digital or film cameras.

The Tamron SP AF28-300/3.5-6.3 XR Di LD Aspherical (IF) Macro is remarkably small and light for a 28-300mm lens. In fact Tamron state that it's currently the world's smallest and lightest 28-300mm zoom.
