Picked up a Tamron 200-500mm F/5-6.3 DI IF SP LD for my D7200 from KEH. It is their Bargain Grade, but they have seemed to be a bit on the conservative side with their grading when I've bought from them in the past, so I'm hoping for a decent piece of glass. For $350 shipped, I figure it's worth the gamble.

Lens gets good reviews everywhere I've read. A little extra reach over my 70-300 will be nice.

Nice! Hope it works out for ya!

I was happy with my one experience with KEH. I sent them a sigma lens and rated it as bargain, mainly because I thought there was a misalignment in the FE. The quote was for like $250 and after they checked it out they ended up paying me $430 for it. So they're good in my book.

Lens arrived last night. I can see no reason why this was graded a bargain lens. Other than a little grim on the focus ring and maybe one spot on the front glass, this is in very good shape. Auto focus is a little on the noisy side, but that was expected after reading reviews. Hope to get out this weekend and give it a workout.

Nice score. What, pray tell, is KEH? It looks like I need to go dumpster diving in their bargain bin.

Dang, that thing looks as big as the 150-600!

But looks like you got a steal with the grade. I've always been very impressed with KEH's ratings.
