What Tammy is this?

In my search for a 'bargain' 300mm+ prime, I've come across a Tamron that I just can't seem to identify through these forums. So wondered whether anyone could shed some light?

It's a Tamron 300mm/f5.6 w/- Adaptall-2 K-Mount. Now that's the easy part...
  • It's not marked "SP" - so seems to rule out the 54B.
  • It doesn't appear to be the CT300; because:
  • This Tammy has a 62mm filter size (both others have 58mm); and marked AUTO with "EE" on the ring.
  • Other details "Made in Japan" and numbered 340898.
I know photos would help, and I'll upload when I can. Meanwhile, it seems a pretty clean example at an OK price, so I'm tempted.

Can anyone help ID the model or knows of this lens?

Cheers.

Tamron Adapt-A-Matic 300mm F/5.6 Model 670Au

"EE" went with Konica's first commercial auto exposure ('electronic exposure') if that helps

Spot on I think Nesster! Thank you!

Can I ask how you located this...or are you already familiar with the lens?

....I've really got to work on my Googling.

I know enough about the adapt-a-matics to look in that section of adaptall-2.com and there are some knowledgeable Tamron folks over at mflenses.com.
