47A: This 70-210mm zoom was Tamron's foray into the autofocus arena for adaptall - it was only produced in the years 1987-89.

Online posts suggest that it is optically related to the 19AH.

Lens Review Date: May 19, 2017 I can recommend this lens: Yes | Price: None indicated | Rating: 7 

 
Pros: Fixed minimum aperture, fairly sharp
Cons: Bulky, slow autofocus
Sharpness: 8    Aberrations: 8    Bokeh: 8    Handling: 5    Value: 6    Camera Used: K-S1   

An interesting lens, which seems rather nice optically. But the battery-powered (3 AAA) on-board autofocus is only usable in bright light, and you can't really tell what the lens will decide to focus on.

Awkward to use as a manual focus, and awkward to use with autofocus, it's perhaps more interesting as an oddity than to actually use.

I'll let some pictures do most of the talking (All using the on-lens autofocus):
