In the very near future, i will have my Nikon D300 and my Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 lens for sale

D300, excellent condition, very little signs of wear on the exterior, shutter count is 37,700, (the D300 is good for 150,000, so barely run in ;) )

The D300 is the entry level Pro spec body from Nikon with a magnesium alloy chassis, feels very solidly built and has additional weather proofing, a cracking piece of kit for the price

Comes compete with box, charger, battery, strap etc

On here i will let it go for £300 ono


Tamron 17-50 f2.8, again very good condition, very little signs of use, very sharp, very smooth, quick focusing, ask anyone on here how good these lenses are

Comes complete with box, caps and lens hood

On here , i will let it go for £185 ovno







Anyone is welcomed to have look/play before buying

You swine!! I hadn't seen this until now and I thought I had everything I needed (ok wanted) but now this is tempting as I only have a 18-55 kit lens in this range. Not sure if there's anything left in the piggy bank though and I've got bike insurance and tax this month :S

If you are seriously interested i can hold off for a month or 2 as i won't have the rest of the money for the 300mm for a couple of months yet i would think, basically this will be paying for the teleconvertor ;)

I would've loved to get the 17-55 Riz is selling but I can't justify that cost for a lens I will only use occasionally.

So before I commit I need to be sure of just one thing. It is the old non VR one isn't it? Because the later VR version is less popular with people who want sharp photographs (how diplomatic was that?) ok it's pants, so if it's the older one I can get you the money on 27th June (my next pay day) obviously a test before buying but that's not a problem as you can test my 300f/4+1.7x lens set up at the same time. ;)

Yes it is the non VR one, but it is not old, they still make 2 versions, and yes I bought it due to being renowned as a sharper lens than the VR version

And yeah I can wait till then no problem, and of course you can test drive it

I think i may need to try out your lens sooner rather than later Darryl, i have missed out on so many shots this morning due to lack of reach, and i was also reading that the 1.7 tele converter only actually adds 1.5 stops, so the f4.0 will become f6.0 which should be ok for my D700, i assumed it added 1.7 stops, but apparently not

You can have a test run of the 17-50 too if you want

I will just have to borrow the money from else where in the mean time (say hello Mr Credit card) :P

Looks like this could turn into another mini outing. Anyone else who wants to turn up you're more than welcome.
