Pre-owned Tamron SP 180mm f/2.5 LD IF. Item is in perfect working condition. Lens front and rear elements are clean. Included are front and rear lens caps. We are a Tamron USA authorized retailer.
This is one of Tamron's 35th Anniversary Series lenses and was produced in limited numbers, just 3,000 being manufactured. It is the ideal portrait lens that many professional photographers have criticized for being too sharp! Nevertheless, the lens flare is well controlled within this optical design. This lens also uses internal focusing. Look closely at the optical design for this lens. You will note that Tamron uses two LD elements in the front focus group for near-perfect apochromatic performance and that Tamron uses their unique "spherical aberration compensator group" (the doublet in the middle of the lens) which maintains sharpness even at closer focus distances. The SP 180 remains razor-sharp throughout its focus range.
