Tamron Adaptmatic

I've had this old tamron 70-220mm f4 Lens sitting around for ever and really had no use for it since it is an FD mount....or so I thought. I always had a sneaking suspicion it was an adaptal or something of the sort lens. I checked today and it turns out it is. Its an adaptmatic lens which is the predecessor to the adaptall series of lenses. Tamron Adapt-A-Matic Series Lenses Its the 2nd version of this lens. I was wondering if it would be worth it to look into getting a K mount adaptmatic mount so I could try this lens out on my K100D? If so, what should I pay and where should I look for one? Also, what metering options would I have?

Thanks in advance,

Tyler

Adaptamatics are fairly rare. I'm not sure, but you might have better luck finding an M42 adapter.

The AD2's could use AD1 adapters, but Adaptamatics need a dedicated mount (as far as us Adaptall users can find)...
