I have the 500mm Mirror Tamron lens, it is for aligning and fixing the Adaptall ring. It also aligns f8.0. I can see that you have not yet attached the ring. You need a camera specific ring for Adaptall lenses. This allowed the user to keep the lens when changing systems and just change the Adaptall ring i.e. switching from Nikon to Canon for example would cost you only $49.00

Yours like mine, is the newer version of the 2 manufactured.

Oh, by the way, it is one of the finest Cat lenses ever produced.
