Picked it up this afternoon, a Tamron 300mm SP AF 300mm F2.8, my very own bazooka...

Actually I don't find it too bad hand holding it personally, just need to get a strap now to affix to the lens, not the body.

A fellow Sony shooter. Nice piece of glass. I'm looking to replace my dinosaur Sigma 170-500mm. If I might ask, is it used and how much?

 

Cheers!

It is used, yes, got it in an eBay auction for a touch over £460. There's a bit of information over on Dyxum about this lens, and one other review I have found on Pentax mount...

There really isn't much available to read about this lens, it was only made for the Alpha and Pentax mounts.

 

EDIT: Update, found one over at DP Review that someone seems to be willing to sell, cosmetic condition isn't great, but this lens is built like a tank, glass looks okay from the pics and the mount looks clean too. It still has the original drop in filter.

Thanks for the tip. I don't have an account for DPReview. If you do, would you mind a PM over to that gent and ask what he had in mind on price? Contact me via PM if you do. Thanks!
