    Price (S$): current offer $380; BNP: $$440
    To clear as I'm holding to many lenses. Final price reductions! Must go by this week.

    For sale here is a very good copy of the Tamron 200-400mm AF LD F5.6

    Its a constant aperture super-zoom, with auto-focus!

    This has probably got to be the best 400mm lens in the auto-focus category for canon systems. Any better would probably cost you from $500-1200+ more depending on whether you're considering the Sigma 400mm F5.6 or Canon's 100-400 or 400mm F5.6 L lenses.

    On a cropped body, I find it sharp corner to corner from F7.1 onwards at 400mm. This is using a 100% cropped pixel peeping standard. The objects I tested on were some 40-60m away (buildings 2 streets away). Really impressive. Highly recommend for a budget user who wants to enter the super telephoto field.

    AF is not too bad, not USM standard, but fast enough. Afterall its only about a 45 degree focusing cycle. Fast enough on my 40D to take grabshot candids.

    At 1260g, its certainly hand-holdable in most daylight condition. Usually bump up the ISO to 400-650 though. This lens is still significantly lighter than the 70-200mm F2.8 + TC I tried with my uncle's system. At F7.1, the difference is sharpness is not distinctive enough for me to justify the price.

    At 200mm, this lens is supposedly sharp at F5.6. I generally agree, but seldom shoot at 200mm anyway, 200mm is not the main reason I have this lens. But its good when you so happen to be closer than usual to your subjects, beats a prime.

    Comes with a nice hood and tripod ring.

    Selling because I may have over-estimated my need for a long lens, trying to reverse some impulse spending.

    Very well kept condition, especially for the glass! 9/10 at least.

    I'm open to all offers, just quote me your budget and we'll discuss the price.
    Though note that I'm not urgent to sell this, its a good lens to keep until I can find a better user for it.
