Ahoy all!

I have several lenses for sale in addition to other stuff on various UK sites, but you can see some of what I have here. I also have a boxed copy of the Tamron SP AF 90/2.8 1:1 Di Macro (Model 272EM) which isn't listed (yet) and a rattling second Min 70-210/4 Macro and a non functioning Min 50/3.5 RS prime. The Beercan works (sort of) as the whole body feels like it'll fall apart and the zoom ring doesn't always go across the entire zoom range and can snag at 80-200mm (ish) and may be a simple fix, so these two can be had for £20.00 incl. UK delivery.

I'm open to offers

I'll endeavour to list all my other gear including A900,VG-C90AM, LowePro AW bag, tripod, F58, monopod and more, but I can't give a timescale, so is for info only.

Update:

I have 2x Tamron 272EM macro lenses that aren't listed yet if anyone is looking for one of the finest 'portrait macro' lenses you can get (see lenses section for specs/owner reviews/image samples/% rating).

What the 'going rate' is these days I don't know as new ones are anything from £250 + and subject to the usual optical/operational/cosmetic condition/completeness that determines what price bracket it's in, but buying from non toggers likely means they have no clue about how to inspect the inside of a lens, what they're looking for and what it looks like let alone its mechanical and operations plus any issues with front lens coating condition, and it's a 'scary' thought if the vendor is either feigning their their lack of knowledge and describing it in such a way that even with no knowledge, the lens in top condition, but you discover to your horror that you have a product that resembles something that's been in the desert, jungle, arctic and in battlefield conditions.

I mention this that it happened to me a couple if weeks ago when a Beercan I won was delivered and the entire body plus zoom/focus rings were rattling so much that when I could get the zoom to work, it was getting stuck at 80mm and 200mm, the inside of the lens was so contaminated with dust and fibres the like of which I've never seen before and the kicker was that when attached to the camera, it wasn't being identified by the camera and had to be used in MF and I contacted the vendor and got no reply so I started a dispute and the vendor responded PDQ and had a right cob-on and refunded me and said don't bother returning it and blamed me plus he said it was fine the last time he used it (whenever that was).

Anyway, I went off-topic, so I'm open to offers.
