New (to me) Lens

I've been wanted a cheap big range zoom for snaps for a long time. Finally decided to get one. Not bad for $120! It's a used Tamron 28-300mm 3.5-6.3 purchased at KEH. Seems decently sharp and focus is consistent with Tamron. Slower than my Canon lenses and hunts in dark light, but it works. It will be perfect for what I wanted...a walkabout lens that could fall in the lake without me shedding a tear.

It's a used camera equipment place.
