It does not fit the Lens
on February 26, 2013
It is too large for the lens which I bought from Amazon in 2011. Otherwise it looks similar to the one I lost.
And Adorama (Amazon's Vender) is no help, I spent a lot of wait time to get someone in their New York store who might know if the Tamron lens has been made in more than one diameter but they said I had to ask Amazon. I have yet to try that but I would be surprised if there is anyone in Amazon Customer Service who is a lens expert.
I rechecked Adorama's website and called again for a so called lens expert, no help!
I went to another large New York Camera Vender not used by Amazon, their website identified the problem. The Tamron lens manufactured more recently is smaller, filter size 62mm, the older version filter size was 72mm. I ordered and have received the correct Lens Hood.
