Tamron Aspherical XR 28-200mm f3.8-5.6 Macro Lens Pentax AF

Up for auction is this Tamron Aspherical XR (IF) 28-200mm f3.8-5.6 Macro Lens for Pentax AF.  Serial No. A036000225. Until recently this was my favorite lens for use with my DSLR, but recently I noticed that many of my pix had lower contrast and required more sharpening. A close inspection revealed that the lens has developed a faint tracery of internal fungus that's causing diffusion. That's ok for portraits, maybe, but not for most of the stuff I shoot. So out it goes.

Other than the fungus this is is a very nice lens with not much sign of wear. Zoom and AF focus work as they should, and there are no scratches on the lens.
