Item Description
Tamron SP 55B 500mm f8 catadioptric (mirror) lens.
Mirror lenses, in general, do not enjoy a great reputation. The exceptions are the Tamron SP mirror lenses which are outstanding. Nowhere can you get such reach (500mm or an equiv. FOV of a 750mm lens on an APS-C DSLR like the Pentax). This lens has seen very little use. It comes with the original screw-on metal Tamron hood, the original front lens cap, the original snap hard case, the original set of 30.5mm rear filters, and even the original detachable tripod socket (something that the later 55BB version sadly dropped. That's one reason the 55B is usually more sought-after. This kit also included the Pentax KM adaptall mount making it usable immediately on any Pentax k-mount film or digital camera.

Pentax Q owners: With a PK to Q adapter, this lens will give you an incredibly lightweight compact 2750mm equiv. field of view!

Here is a set of images taken with this same model lens from Flickriver: Flickriver: Photoset 'Tamron SP 500mm f/8 55B Adaptall Mirror Lens' by KBauschardt The thing those images don't make obvious is from how far away they were taken and the way this lens can pull distant objects this close with this much clarity, color and contrast (the very things you normally see lacking in a lesser mirror lens).

Everything inside the case is in very good condition (lens, hood, filters, mount & detachable tripod socket). The hinged case itself has age cracks in the vinyl and some areas of wear that have been touched up for appearance sake. The original box is included and it is in wonderful shape, as well. You won't find many that are this nice and complete.
