Latest Review Posted Tamron Adaptall-2 SP 80-200mm f2.8 LD BBAR MC (30A)
my copy was an 'ugly' from KEH - I bought it as a BGN but it had separation inside the lens so they refunded part of my payment. In addition, my lens had a malfunctioning aperture lever (would not stop down past about f/8), and after a few days shooting with it one of the zoom cams came off inside the camera so it was locked in the 110-135mm range until I fixed it. I opted to keep it with a partial refund rather than send it back for a full refund, but for others not experienced with lens repair, it would have been a no-go. The separation is not severe and is outside of the light path past f/5.6. Despite the setbacks I've had with this lens, I enjoy using it. the contsant fast aperture is nice, very beneficial for manual exposure/metering. Contrary to others, i really like the heavy weight. I put 3000 pictures through this lens one day at a Indy car race without a tripod, and I'm not a big guy. Spend the money and make sure you get a good copy.
