Tamron 500mm f8 mirror lens

Looking for a Tamron 500mm f8 mirror lens in good shape at a reasonable price for my wife. I know where I can buy one for $160 right now, so I'm looking for one for less.

Thanks!
Bob :-)

Wow, 160 is a steal for this lens! Does it come with the adapter?

Probably not, but I don't need an adapter.

Are you set on a Tamron lens.

I have a Vivitar 500 f8 mirror lens that I'd be happy to let go if you are interested.

PM me if you are interested.

Check with KEH. They have a bunch of them at very low prices. I would encourage you to stick to Tamron. I have a Sigma 600 F8, a Bower(Samyang) 500 F6.3 and a Tamron 500 F8. By far the Tarmon is the sharpest. Make sure you get one with the hood included. It is absolutely essential to get good contrast.

Hey blackcloudbrew. Thanks for the offer, but my wife is really wanting the Tamron.

demp10 Re: KEH - Yep. That's where they're around $160. Not too worried about the hood, since I can get an aftermarket one cheap on eBay. But yeah, a hood is essential. I use one on my 3M-5CA all the time.

No problem, just thought I'd give you an option. Best of luck on getting one.
