Tamron SP 90 mm Macro model 72E & 172 E

I noticed a few missing lenses in the Tamron Data Base. I know there are auto focus models of the 72 B you have listed. I understand there were two models produced with Pentax mounts. One was 72 E followed by a 172 E. Both preceeded the current 272 E. Is there any reason why these are not listed? There may be no reviews available, but there are some offered for sale in the Marketplace from time to time. You do list other lenses with no current reviews. I recommend they be listed under legecy fixed focal length lenses. Maybe some of the members will be propmted to write reviews if they see the lens listed. I suspect they will get good reports like the older manual focus and new autofocus versions.

My old 52BB, manual focus version, is possibly one of the best lenses I've ever had. It's certainly one of the best focal lengths on a crop sensor.
