I take great pictures don't I Good luck with the sale hinman!
Thank you Wally, I should have asked you first for your permission to use your product shots. The lens is a beauty and I will make more product shots to show its characters. I shipped out the other two sold lens with Quantaray and Promaster earlier and have a chance to finally weigh the Tokina 80-200mm f/2.8. The Tokina lens weights 2lb 7 oz and it is less heavier than the 3 lb weight as in the latest Sigma/Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8.

Thanks,
Hin

This Tamron adaptall-2 lens is the best manual focus zoom lens that I have used for that focal range in 70-210mm. I have owned first three versions of Vivitar Series 1 zooms and this 19AH can easily beat the three Vivitar Series 1 zoom in terms of sharpness, macro is not as good as the Vivitar but everything else is found better in this adaptall-2 lens. The focusing ring is nicely designed for quick and precise focusing.

Thanks,
Hin

Any available shots taken with the Tamron? I already have an Adaptall K-M mount for my Tamron SP 35-80, uber sharp!


Edit: Never mind, I checked out the info on your site!

Thank you for the quick purchase and I will ship it first thing on Wednesday morning.

The only lens left in the lot is the Tamron SP 70-210mm f/3.5 adaptall-2 19AH, please feel free to contact me if you have questions. If you have an interest or that you need an Tamron adaptall-2 p/ka adapter or Tamron 2x adaptall-2 TC adapter, please PM me. I can also lower the price without the leather case as I am motivated to finish the sale, please PM me for details.

Thanks,
Hin

The Tokina zoom is on its way to buyer. A bump in case there is a potential buyer for the Tamron SP 70-210mm f/3.5 19AH adaptall-2 lens.

An update: I have decided to withdraw the sale for the remaining item with Tamron SP 70-210mm f/3.5 adaptall-2 to keep it longer.

Instead of closing the thread right the way, I will leave it for the weekend so that any interested party can still PM me with questions and keep informed if they are looking for this lens.

Warmest,
Hin

Closing thread to keep Tamron 19AH for longer.

Much thanks to everyone, especially all the great buyers.
