Question about Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DI XR for Canon
When my I tilt my Nikon d-80 forward, the Tamron 28-300mm lens slides open?! Or it falls to the fully extended position as the gravity increased by tilting it. I was told by the seller that they all are supposed to do that. Is this correct? and;When I asked the seller if this is supposed to happen, he said "they all do that" However, my Nikon DX 18-135mm lens does not slide. respectfully, d.r. whitehead II Additionally, if you will please; If in good used condition, is this worth $225? Tamron 28-300mm, w/ a filter and a hood/shroud or collar.
Many zoom lenses of this length, and even shorter have the problem whereby the lens either extends or retracts under its own weight depending on whether the camera is pointing up or down. I had a Canon 28-105mm lens with this problem. More expensive lenses have zoom locks to prevent this from happening. $225 sound like a good price to me!

My Tamron 28-300mm XR Di extends by itself when pointed downward. Can this be prevented and if so, how?
