For what it's worth, B&H lists the 28/2.5 for $48 + $17.95 for the adaptall in '85
Vivitar's f/2 went for $60 and 2.8 for $35

In '84 the 2.5 was $64 + adapter (unpriced) at Adorama...

Adorama sold a Tamron 28/2.8 for $95.50 + $13.50 for the mount in '78, while a Vivitar 2.5 went for $92.50

I think it had to do with a) marketing b) how recently the lens was introduced

Could I be cheeky and request a PDF copy as well please?




Being a newbie, what does AE mode do and why is this necessary?
Alan, I'm trying to see what PDF you're talking about?

AE mode with the PK-A mount = the 'A' setting on a SMC-A lens

pacerr offered a PDF of the instructions for the Tamron 03A and I would like a copy for myself if possile. However, being a newbie at forum etiquette as well as photography I realise I should have contacted him directly.

I live and learn, even at my age....
