Tamron Adaptall 500mm f/8 Mirror Lens w/ PK mount, Posts worldwide!

Asking Price
$200

Item Description
I got my hands on another copy of the Tamron 500 adaptall lens, the sharpest mirror lens I've ever used, but I'm letting it go because I actually just found an extremely rare mirror lens I want to try out, that is much more expensive than this one.

This lens is somewhere between Fair and Good condition according to the grading scale used on this forum. There are some marks and light scratches all over the body and hood. There are no significant scratches on the glass, maybe just a few hairline ones. There is also a small spec inside the mirror that does NOT look like fungus to me (no long spiderweb/lightning shaped trails), along with some other tiny bits of dust. The glass is in great condition other than that with no fungus, haze, or other problems. I'm sure it will look excellent with a simple cleaning. Focusing is smooth and consistent, though it somehow feels different than the other 500/8 I had. I can't say it's better or worse, perhaps it's just made differently. It doesn't hinder performance at all.

This lens comes WITH a PK adaptall adapter so that you can immediately use it with your Pentax camera. It also comes with the original Tamron metal hood to protect against flare.
