Latest Review Posted Tamron Adaptall-2 SP AF 28-105mm f2.8 LD IF Aspherical (176A)
This lens was made during the period when the industry was transitioning to auto focus and was released as both an AF brand specificmount and as an MF in Adaptall mount. It's kinda huge and heavy especially for a plastic body but neither of those factors bother me. I needed a fast normal zoom to shoot low light indoor events and insisted on full frame. This odd old lens fit the bill nicely. Sharpness is only surpassed by high quality primes even wide open. The adaptall system makes it diverse. The focus ring is a short throw , narrow grip and touchy hence the low mark on handling. I've seen several whith problems (broken plastic) in the mechanism that locks it to the adapter so be careful or leave the adapter on it. This is also a common issue in the similar SP 35-105. .
Certainly not for everyone but I use mine all the time.
