Tamron 17-50 2.8 non VC

I rolled the dice and picked one up for $268, no tax and free shipping from Gadget Circuit. I was apprehensive about GC but Pay Pal told me they do a lot of business. Anyway, the lens came in two days. The box was a little beat up and there appeared to be some fuzz or some material on the outside of the lens. The glass was very clean and everything works properly. But it was definitely not a new, new lens. Maybe a return, or a demo, or something.

The lens is really nice. I am happy with the IQ so far. It feels tank like. Hunts a bit in low light. It's pretty quiet. It's good at 20mm 2.8 and really nice at 20mm f/4. I'm pretty happy with it.

I love a bargain.
