Descriptions:
Tamron SP CF Macro Adaptall-2 70-210mm, f/3.5 (19AH)
According to adaptall-2.org, the best of Tamron's lenses in this range, and one of the best designed ever. To be fair, I think they were only considering manual focus lenses. Still, supposedly out-performs even the various Vivitar Series 1 lenses with similar stats. Last few eBay sales have been in the $70-90 range, although this lens is not nearly as common as the slower versions. It focuses closely at all focal lengths, down to 85cm, for magnification of 1:2.7 at 210mm.

My copy is in good condition, with just a few external dings and scrapes. Glass is clear with no haze, fungus or scratches, just a few dust spots. Focus and zoom are smooth, and aperture snappy. No zoom creep! I do not have the hood, but will include a 62mm UV filter and generic front cap, along with the case. While giving very good IQ, this lens is just a little too heavy for me. So maybe it can be yours!

Our good friend Hin Man has a nice write-up here as well:

I got this on a body I wanted, and haven't really used it much as I have other lenses in this range. My copy looks almost new. B&H and Adorama are selling these new for $130-200! Probably not selling many at that price - a used copy is much less. I took all the pictures of the 70-210 with this lens. This model appears too new for adaptall-2.org, and I couldn't find much about it on the web. It does have a macro mode at the long end, about 1:4. "Disney World" front cap is included. (Impress all those Canikon folks!)


Mounts are both in decent shape, with some signs of use. I have not been able to test the Fujica mount, nor the auto-exposure of the Ricoh mount. The Ricoh is usable on Pentax cameras, although it does have a Ricoh pin that I have not been able to figure out how to remove. If taken out of AE mode it goes on and off pretty easilty, and if it does stick for a minute switching AF on the camera on and off pops it free. Its a cheap way to try out all the many Adaptall lenses, but I suppose there is a little risk involved. If it is to be used on a Ricoh XR-P and the AE doesn't work, I will take it back with shipping paid both ways; same for the Fujica.

Thanks for looking! Let me know if you have any questions!

Nick
