Default Anyone know this lens (Tamron)

Hi all,

I just bought this lens 2hand - got it practially for free.

I'm looking for some additional infomation on it, so speak up if you got any info.

It's called Tamron 28-200 Aspherical LD (IF) 1:3.8-5.6 171A

It does not have autofocus which of course is a downside.

Some pics of the lens and a couple of test shots.

EDIT: The pics lost some in the down scalling

When you say it doesn't have autofocus, I take that to mean that the autofocus is no longer working?
If it's a Canon EF mount, then nominally, if has AF. Have you checked to make sure that the electronic auto aperture is working?

Nope, it's a 100% manual lens, aperture is also manual

You can se the aperture scale/settings at the 2nd picture.

This would be nice if you have the 500D body - manual focus and manual aperture togive you the flexibility the AF lenses lack with the 500D.
