[SOLD] 2 Tamron 90mm/2.5 Macros with adapters - Adaptall-2

I've got two Tamron 90mm f/2.5 Adaptall-2 macro lenses available, along with adapters.

Lens 1: Fair condition, focus ring is discolored and slightly stretched. Not loose, it grips tightly when focusing. Visible dust inside lens, no effect on image quality.
Lens 2: Very good condition with normal dust in glass, otherwise fine.

Also have two Adaptall-2 adapters available:
Adapter 1: P/K (manual exposure) mount, perfect condition, includes rear cap
Adapter 2: P/KA (auto exposure) mount. Two issues, 1st is that the adapter often requres some fiddling before the lens aperture information is passed to the camera. From what I've read, this is pretty common. 2nd is that this adapter doesn't seem to stop down past f/8. I've tried it on both lenses and it behaves the same way. It works perfectly up to f/8, but turning the aperture dial past that has no effect. Everything looks and feels smooth, so not sure what the deal is there.

Both lenses include 49mm filter and Tamron front and rear caps.

Pricing is as follows:
SOLD Lens 1: $75
Lens 2: $100
SOLDAdapter 1: $20
SOLDAdapter 2: $35

Shipping in US is $6 for single lens with or without adapter. Adapter alone is $3. Int'l shipping at actual cost.

In the images below, Lens 1 is on the left, Lens 2 is on the right. Note that some of the visible dust on both lenses in the picture was actually on the surface of the filter which I didn't notice when taking the photos last night.

The lens on its own is 1:2. With a 2x TC or extension tubes it does 1:1.
