Found this on Ebay; bought it for $150! No fungus, oil or visible damage. Listed as flawless. Does anyone have any experience using a 90-300mm Tamron on Sony Alpha cameras?





Original UV Filter

This lens usually sells for $30-60 on eBay, its an uncommon lens, but not a rare/desirable lens. I've used this lens and it is not a lens I would recommend to anyone unless the price was very low/it came in a lot with some better lenses you were after, for $75-150 you can get a modern version of the Tamron 70-300mm Di which will give you better performance. $175 gets you a brand new copy with warranty etc.

Were there any issues with sharpness from your use? I already bought it but I'm just curious if the IQ on the 70-300 is superior. Also with this being an uncommon lens, is there any chance of this being more of a collector's item?
