For Sale: Tamron SP 90mm Adaptall 2 Macro with PK/A Mount and 1:1 EX. Tube

Asking Price

Item Description
Tamron SP 90mm f2.5 Adaptall 2 complete macro setup. Includes PK/A Adaptall 2 mount and dedicated Tamron Extension Tube for 1:1 capability.
This lens has served me well for 3 years. Exceptionally sharp, and legendary bokeh.
I have used it successfully on a Pentax *DS, K10D, and a K20D.
Like seemingly all Adaptall models, the electronic interface with the camera can be erratic. Now and then you have to slightly nudge the lens to restore seeing the aperture readout in the viewfinder. It also fails to show the aperture readout opening past f4, but the image in the viewfinder clearly does. The red poppy shot below was at f 2.8.

The image quality is primo, some examples:

Bokeh is truly beautiful. If I think about the 105mm Kiron/Lester Dine/Vivitar Series 1 prices lately, this is a good buy with the dedicated extension tube. Deduct the adaptall mount from the ask price and it's a really good buy - let's you buy other great Tamron glass!
