very rare tamron 70-150mm f2.8 with soft setting

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
very rare tamron 70-150mm f2.8 with soft setting

Asking Price
$540 (350)

Item Location
London (UK)

Item Description
This lens is almost never available. Here it is in adaptall mount (you'll need the tamron pentax adapter to go with it, widely available on ebay as you probably know)

I bought it to use without the "soft" setting, which is kind of fun but without it the lens is very sharp! see my photo gallery all the way below.

feel free to ask any questions - also possible to pick up yourself in london (hackney ideally) to save postage fees.

here's a couple sites that might be of use:

Tamron SP Adaptall-2 70-150mm F/2.8 SOFT Model 51A

and here's a gallery of some pics of and with the lens:

the portrait is taken using the soft ring setting - a side by side comparison of the material on the bed - one at soft 1 the other at soft maximum of 3
