That was KEH.com, right? They're a good outfit to work with.

TCav..thought I'd give you an update. Got the lens back today-took little less than 3weeks. Didnt say what was wrong but repaired it and seems to be working fine. Will give it a better workout in next few days if weather straightens up.
Thanks Again for your help.

Dennis

TCav-another update...took the lens out and shot about 100 photos and it broke again, the same thing as the first time. Called and returned it to them. Maybe just that lens or maybe the 180 has problems..dont know but not getting another one.Probably get a Sigma 180 or may just keep playing with tubes and CL on my 70-210 f/4 or the 300f/4 I got. The link below has a few of the pics from the Tamron 180 if interested.

It looks like it was great for a while. Too bad it couldn't stay the course.
