Equipment Type: Lens
Equipment Brand: Tamron (NikonMount)
Equipment Model: 17-50mm f/2.8 BIM Non-VC
Price (S$): 295 firm
Description:
Selling cheap because this copy is not very sharp. The previous seller did not disclose the softness to me. I bought it for work usage and I guess can't live with the softness.

But for portraits and casual usage, it is a cheap 2.8 fast zoom for a begineer or budget hobbyists.

No box, no papers, but with free Hoya HMC multicoated Skylight/UV filter.

Deal at Kovan MRT if you commute, or Blk 115 Hougang Avenue 1 if you drive.

Thanx.

Real Name: Anton

Condition of Item: 9
Warranty Status: Nil, as is.

Also the lens always reports the focal length to the camera exif as either 32mm or 42mm, which the original seller of the lens did not disclose to me.
