I got a Tamron 80-210mm lens (03A, not 103A) for the adapter it came with recently.
Now inside the lens, right behind the rear element, there is an actual hair!
it's loose, and when you tap the lens, you can actually move it too the side.
I tried opening up the lens, but the system is so complex I closed it again (after 4 tries, messed up 3 times) and decided not to go any further.
Does anyone have any idea what I could sell this lens (without adapter) for?
I got it for only 10GPB, and I'd like to get half of that back...do you think that's possible?
apart from the hair, the glass is fine
