Tamron Adaptall 2 135/2.5 (03B) for £21 - a steal.
Looks like a real nice lens you got there, I especially like the seascapes 4-7 with the boats, low hanging clouds etc. Great shots!

I would like to join this club and purchase a 135mm. My primes consist mainly of converted Contax' with the Leitax bayonet. My eye has fallen on these lenses: The K the A 2,8 or Contax 2,8.

Somehow I would like continue my Contax lineup, but the A 2,8 seems interesting, I like the A setting and the reviews are not all that bad.

Any thoughts? on the my dilemma.

@Jakob, vildt flotte billeder.

..yes, Im looking into that sometime soon..the short extension takes one from 150cm into about 90cm focus distance (I think, any experience on that?) with a 135mm.

..Yep, we Scandinavians sure are on to some 135mm secrets! (I have never seen anyone from Iceland here)

I made quick test on the kitchen table, I measured dinstance from front element (more important for me than sensor) and got some results:

Extension distance
0mm 130cm
12mm 79cm
20mm 66cm
36mm 48cm
68mm 35cm

These are not very accurate measurements, and I didn't calculate magnication.

Pontax is from Denamrk too?

(Maybe there is no Pentax cameras in Iceland )

Great notes and precise enough. It´s the 12mm I´m going for with my K 2.5/135 that some times feels just that little bit to far from the subject on close-ups. Thank´s

And yes, I just learned that Pantox (is that a parafrase to Pentax?) is from Bornholm, very much in Denmark, (but also furtherest to the east, south of Skåne..but you probably know that)

K 2.5/135 (with K7) Cropped some water away, zooming in to about 200% for a closer focus on the boy and dog (my son Gustav and fox Betty)

Yes, I agree, this lens has so much IQ that one does not notice the crop/enlargement at all. Thank´s. Regards
