[SOLD] Tamron SP 90mm f/2.5 Macro (BB52), Pentax F 35-70mm, Vivitar 500mm f/8.0 Mirro

1.Tamron SP 90mm f/2.5 1:2 Macro with 1:1 ext. tube (52BB) ($135 + shipping) [SOLD]
  • In great working condition. Cosmetic excellent
  • Includes both front & rear caps, rear cap original
  • Lens hood in 55mm is not provided.
  • Tamron Adaptall2 adapter for P/K or P/KA is not provided
  • Comes with 1:1 extension tube in original box as shown in pictures
  • normal wear, glass in great condition without haze, scratch and fungus
  • reasons for selling: I bought too many macro lens and I don't have the time to get into this Tamron Adaptall lens.
  • My reports: I have not tested this lens thoroughly but I took few test shots for product shots in 1:2 close up with the lens and results look excellent. The lens is well built with metal body. The focusing ring is good for MF and macro work with long and smooth ring. With PK/A adapter, the lens can be used in Av mode for apertures smaller than f/4.0, other bigger apertures require stop-down metering in M mode. With P/K adapter, stop down metering mode in all apertures

  • Lens is in great working condition. Normal wear. Cosmetic quite good.

  • My reports

4. Vivitar 70-150mm f/3.8 from Kiron ($35 + shipping) [SOLD]
  • In great working condition
  • comes with generic rear and front caps
  • A highly recommended value lens for the price. I like the lens but it overlaps with my Vivitar Series 1 zoom.
  • A two touch zoom design that I like it better than the one touch zoom in many other MF lens
  • no scratch, no marks, no fungus and haze on the lens
  • Reason for selling: It overlaps with my DA* 50-135mm f/2.8 and Vivitar Series 1 70-210mm f/2.8-4.0 from Komine

1.Tamron SP 90mm f/2.5 1:2 Macro with 1:1 ext. tube (52BB)






Lens alone goes with 1:2 macro
With extension, it is 135mm 1:1 macro








Both lens and extension are in good working condition. Very light wear on the lens barrel. Lens hood is missing in the lens but both front and rear caps are included.

Please NOTE: Sale doen't come with Adaptall adapter. A P/K tamron adaptall cost about $15 to $25 but the PK/A is hard to find and it cost about $90 and it won't AE unless f/4.0 and smaller. For f/2.5 to f/4.0, I can use M mode and stop-down metering.

If any of you enjoy fast focusing type of manual lens, you will love this two touch zoom from Kiron, I highly recommend this as a budget value zoom. Sharpness and ease of use is the strength of this zoom lens
