Been interested in this lens for a while now with heavy recommendations from peers. $160 rebate total ($85 education + $75 normal). Anybody know what a good sale price for the lens is?
Yeah sorry I meant $340 after rebate, not $360. You can also get 2% back at Amazon now and Adorama I think. Plus whatever your credit card gives you. I've rarely seen this lens go for less than $499 new from an authorized dealer. And make sure you buy from an authorized Tamron dealer to be eligible for the rebates and the great 6-year warranty.
- Placed an order, read some pretty critical reviews how the lens isn't all that much sharper than an 18-55mm kit lens.. and some other negative things (quality control), so I sent a cancellation request.
- Looked at more video reviews/samples and decided that I do want the lens, so I sent a request to disregard that cancellation request
- Today I was thinking that $300 is definitely more than I want to spend (on a lens), so I'd hoped that they wouldn't be able to renew the order (it had been canceled). Turns out they did, only I'm not sure my credit card is being charged for this one!
Oh well, it has been marked shipped and I'll have hands on it soon enough. If I get it, try it and decide it's not worth $300 of my hard earned dollars, I'll send it back for a refund.
