Mythical Adaptall 200F TC on eBay, with 300mm lens included!
Posted By: panoguy, 11-25-2011, 06:12 PM

I don't think these come up very often. There is an auction going for a pretty new looking Tamron Adaptall (30B) 300mm/2.8 with the 140F 1.4x TC and the very rare 200F 2x TC. This is the one that only works on these longer, faster lenses, and is apparently very good!

Go to folks! I'll keep butchering 01F 2X TC's into extension tubes...

Very good lens I used it handheld with a lot of success!!! I would love to try that TC and see if it is as good as i hear.

It will likely close in the 600 range, though I don't think the lens is worth that based on it's wider aperture performance(CA and PF wise).

From reading the comments.....I'm not so sure that the 300mm is included...and it sounds like there is a possible issue with the 140F

I'm fairly certain the sale includes everything shown in the pictures. Especially where the title of the auction is: Tamron Adaptal 300mm 2.8 SP lens however, later down(in the Q&A section), the seller adds the following remark: "The sale includes the 140F and 200F teleconverters"

I can't imagine those are the pictures the seller would use if the lens itself was not included.

Huh... "auction ended by the seller" after a few bids and with 3 days left.

My guess is either we'll be seeing separate auctions pretty soon, or someone (around here?) offered enough "offline" for the seller to forget the eBay terms.

Probably the latter. Happens all the time. I did that myself last week, selling a large telescope on behalf of an in-law. There's the dilemma: Let the auction play out and hope to score, or accept the offer? I called the in-law and was told to accept, so the "auction ended by seller -- item no longer available" message went out with three days remaining. BTW, the offer wasn't really 'offline' as it came through the eBay message system. And PayPal still got their cut, you-betcha.
