        If you want this particular lens I’m happy to point you in the right direction, eBay-wise. Just be aware that this is a manual-focus only lens, and you’ll need to get a Tamron to Canon adapter (also available on eBay). Too bad you don’t have a Nikon, as I have a spare Tamron/Nikon adapter that came with my lens and that’s of no use to me. 🙂

    That’s very generous of you … but just my luck! Can I ask how expensive that particular lens is? I assume you need it on a tripod for everything?

      I rarely use it on a tripod, but it does require steady hands and/or decent shutter speeds! The average price on eBay is about $150. Here’s a current auction:

      and another that’s in a bit better shape:

      The adapters are pretty cheap – the one I use cost less than $20.00.
