Tamron 90mm f2.8 Adaptall 1:1 Macro Lens Price Reduced Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Tamron 90mm f2.8 Adaptall 1:1 Macro Lens

Asking Price

Item Location
Los Angeles, CA (United States)

Item Description
Almost New Tamron 90mm f2.8 1:1 Macro Lens Adaptall Mount for sale (I also have both PK/A and PK/M adapters available).

Yes, you read right, there is no typo. This is a Tamron 90mm f2.8 (not the 2.5 version) in the Adaptall Mount. As I understand it, this was the last adaptall model lens ever made. It uses basically the same lens formula as the current AF 90mm f2.8 macro so it can do 1:1 macro without additional tubes and teleconverters (unlike the old 90mm f2.5 which only does 1:2 by itself). Tamron 90mm's are famous for their smooth backgrounds and crystal clear macro capabilities. Compact and light, but still well built, it also functions great as a portrait lens which many people use 85mm's for.

The lens is almost brand new. I bought it without box as new old stock. I just didn't use it enough to justify keeping it. The lens is perfect. Glass and body are perfect. No scratches or defects anywhere. No dust inside. The focus is very smooth (better than the AF version which people complain about as being grainy). Since this is a macro lens, manual focus is what most people use most anyways because critical focusing is so important. Aperture clicks solidly. Extremely large and comfortable rubber grip. Absolutely no problems whatsoever. Includes the original front caps and the clear stand (which is the original back cap for an adaptall mount). Asking $185.

Also available for sale separately is a PK/A mount. This is the nice one that allows for in body aperature control. Beautiful shape, excellent condition with original rear cap. Asking $65 with purchase of the above lens, no extra shipping charge. ($75+$5shipping if purchased alone).

Also available for sale separately is a PK/M mount. This is really just a Ricoh adaptall mount with the annoying pin removed. It functions perfectly with any adaptall lens, but you will have to use the green button with stop down metering (unless you only shoot wide open). Asking $10 with purchase of lens above, no extra shipping charge. ($15+$5shipping if purchased alone).

I also have a whole bunch of filters and circular polarizers for sale. If you buy them with the lens, there is no extra shipping charges. Please take a look:

This is a beautiful lens and is basically new. If you like the Tamron rendering in a macro, and you like manual focus in a macro, this lens is for you!
