When I was in High School I won my first photography competition and with my winnings purchased my first wide angle lens, a Vivitar 28mm TX mount lens. Sadly, the concept never caught on. I checked with our Used Department and we currently do not have one in stock, but I was told we do get them in regularly.

I find all of my TX to P/K mount adapters on Ebay. Sometimes I get them by buying a common lens such as a 90-230 or a 135mm lens that has one attached. Then if I do not need that particular lens I sell it on Ebay without the adapter. I usually get a small profit from this as well. Other times I do a search on Ebay for a TX mount then keep it active for a year or more. They can cost as much as 40 dollars US when bought separately but you can sometimes get a lens with one attached for less than 20 dollars US.

Thanks Big Dawg I won't have to do that, as I have found one on E-Bay. Thanks for the info though.

Thanks again
