    Some questions about the Adaptall 80-200 for sale:
    1. How big are the "white spot marks" you mentioned? I couldn't tell from the picture. Do they ever show up in photos?
    2. How snug/secure is the 3rd-party tripod ring? Can you easily rotate the lens 90 degrees to shoot vertical on a monopod?
    3. How sharp is this lens wide open? How's the contrast?

    I currently use a Vivitar Series 1 70-210 f/3.5. I like it very much; it's sharp and contrasty wide open. I use it for night-time HS football, coffeehouse concerts, etc.

    The only reason I'm considering another lens is:
    1) To get something even a little faster (f/2.8 vs. f/3.5), and
    2) to get a zoom with a tripod ring. There's not really any good place to mount a tripod ring on the Vivitar, at least not without losing the range around 150mm - 210mm.

    Thanks for any additional info!

    Nick, Earlier today I ran across an ad of yours that apparently was posted on 4-2-11. (i cannot find it now). It had 4 items in the ad and 3 of them were sold but the last item was a Pentax PZ-20 with (I think) two lenses, and a flash. Is this item still for sale?
