Tamron Adaptall 24mm

Has anyone used this lens, its seems like one of the cheaper 24's out there and the old adaptalls have a reputation for being better than a lot of the off-brand lenses out there, plus the crop sensor goes a ways towards eliminating corner softness.

The extra half a stop (its a 2.5 not a 2.8) makes it kind of attractive.

At some point I'm probably going to buy a 90mm macro anyway so I wouldn't mind having the adaptall mount, or do you need a mount for each lens.

Don't know about the 24mm, but I do have experience with the Adaptalls.

Theoretically you don't need a separate mount for each lens. However, I can report that out of the three different mounts (OM, Nikon AI, Pentax KA) the Pentax mount is the most fiddly to get seated right... and people report issues with the communication with the camera body.

I would not hesitate to share a single mount on the OM, and only for a moment with the Nikon. The KA mount I'd want to get a separate mount for each lens, sooner or later.

Plus the KA adaptalls are in short supply. If you don't mind a non-A mount, they are much more plentiful.
