In general the older lens may be sharper at equivalent focal length it i suspect , if it is like other tamrons of the 1980's will suffer from lateral CA much more than the newer lens. That being said, if you can get the 180/2.5 with a KA adaptor cheap enough and you want length more than anything else, go for it

The tamron 70-200 is a super lens, though.
