Final Price Drop! Tamron Adaptall-2 28mm, 135mm, 28-70mm, PK-A mounts

For sale I have three Adaptall-2 lenses (28/2.5, 135/2.5, 28-70/3.5-45) and one Adaptall-2 PK-A mount. The lenses do not include a mount.

Please see my other listings for more MF prime lenses and film cameras if you are interested.

Payment will be via Paypal or US Postal money order.
Shipping will be at actual cost with delivery confirmation based on your zip code. I will ship worldwide, but I do not lie on customs forms. International shipping without any tracking is at your own risk, but I will provide a scan of my receipt from the post office if that makes you feel better.

Adaptall-2 Pentax PK-A mount. $80. I found that I have another one of these (how did they multiply?), so here's another nice one tested by me and are working appropriately. I have one Tamron Adaptall Pentax rear cap. If you get one the 28mm lens as well, I’ll throw in the rear cap.


Tamron Adaptall-2 28mm f2.5 (model 02B). $45, $40, $35, $30 $25Optics are clean and clear except for the usual internal dust specks. Aperture blades are dry and snappy. Helicoid is smooth and well-damped. Cosmetically, the lens shows only very light wear. Includes the original front cap, an original rear cap for the Tamron AD2 P/K mount, and the original case.





Tamron Adaptall-2 135mm f2.5 (model 03B). $40.. SOLD This is an underrated lens in my opinion. It’s lighter and more compact than the Pentax equivalent, but has the bonus of focusing closer (down to ). In (informal) comparison with my S-M-C Takumar 135mm f2.5 (version 1), a well-regarded lens, I found the Tamron to be its equal in IQ and bokeh. That is to say it is sharp even wide open, becoming extremely sharp when stopped down, with excellent, smooth background blur. Plus the Tamron has the useful close focus (this is rather soft wide open but becomes nicely sharp at middle apertures). It also has a built-in sliding hood. If my Takumar wasn’t a real beater with little resale value, I would have sold it and kept the Tamron. The lens has some internal dust and one very, very faint coating scratch (only visible when hit with a flashlight at just the right angle) on the rear element that will have no impact on IQ. There is also some cleaning fluid residue (visible only if the light strikes it a certain way) on the inside of the rear element (this lens had some fungus and so I disassembled and carefully cleaned and removed all the fungus, treated the whole lens with a UV light, but I never could get that rear element perfectly clean). Aperture blades are dry and snappy. Helicoid is smooth and well-damped. Cosmetically, the lens shows light wear. Includes a generic front cap (no rear cap unless you buy the PK-A mount).



Tamron Adaptall-2 28-70mm f3.5-4.5 tele-macro zoom (159A). $4 or Free with one of my other lenses or the PK-A mounts. No mount included.Whoever screwed on the filter mis-threaded it and it is rather jammed on. I don’t want to force it off as I can see a crack in the filter ring, so forcing it off will likely break the filter ring. There is also a long crack in the plastic on what would be the front rim of the lens (see picture)—perhaps the lens was dropped and that’s what caused the problem both with the filter and here. The crack appears purely cosmetic. I will include the original owners manual. I’m short on 52mm front caps, so I’ll include the stuck filter (Hoya HMC Skylight 1B) will have to suffice. Optically, the lens is clean and clear with only the usual couple pieces of internal dust. The Hoya filter has a few spots of damage to the coating (common with the HMC), and the front element of the lens has a couple of light fingerprints and pieces of dust that I can’t reach to clean. Aperture blades are dry and snappy. A great cheap little user of a lens.

Yes, and thanks to you one of the PK/A adapters is now sold. I still have another one available.

Also, I've dropped the price on the 28/2.5 by $5!

The sale of the 135/2.5 has fallen through, so it is now back to being available for sale.

Another price drop on the 28/2.5. Don't forget it comes with the original case, although I forgot to photograph it with that. That's the final price drop I'm making on it.

Another $5 price drop on the 28mm, now only $30. If you take both the 28 and 135, I'll even drop another $5 off the price!

Final chance to get the 28mm, as I'll be moving soon and so would have to withdraw the lens for sale on Wednesday if someone hasn't taken it by then. So let's drop it a final $5 to get it sold. Now only $25!

I can't believe it, but somehow I have found another Adaptall PK-A mount I had (maybe it's the love-adaptor of the other two I sold?). So I can once again offer an Adaptall 2 PK-A adaptor for $80. As with the other two I sold, it is working properly.
