Very rare lens. Only one i've seen in my 10 years of photography. This one was available on eBay one day while searching for Pentax lenses.

First - forgive me if something is ununderstood. English is not my native language
This is my very first review. I hope it will not be my last
I saw the Tamron 107b sales advertisement on one Finnish site. It was on sale with Pentax 1,7x af adapter. It already has Pentax K-mount adapter attached to it. Price was 750 €.
It caught my eye from the first moment. I am not a proffessional photographer but I love to try and learn all the new (especially old new) things. So I decided to give it a try.
I asked about this lens from as many good photographers I knew and did a lot of research via Internet.
I could not resist the temptationd to try this big tank.
I did not see this lens myself before buying it. I sent my husband (or partner, weīre not married) who works in Finland to get it for me. He drew all day to the seller and back I only sent money to him.
When I got the first pictures from a carseat on a way back I was very happy to see it has also hard leather box. The guy was selling his Pentax gear because he went over to Canon-side. I instantly asked what else he got... I also bought 2xL teleconverter with 100 euros. I donīt have any lens to try with it but I just could not leave it alone behind. I might get some more lenses for this one or sell it to some Pentax-lover. So, thank you, Pertti! Maybe you are/were also a member. I really love it!

It is quite heavy, real tank. It has tripod mount. I havenīt used it much yet but first dates with it have been joyful.
It is possible to turn focus ring with my left hand. It might be a bit stiff on the edgesbut I donīt mind.
I wish I could get outside much more. Since it is December and quite dark and mostly cloudy outside, also my days go by at work in daylight, I wait for late winter and spring time.
I add some example photos I took on the first night to try (not very elaborated - sorry) and some of my first birdie-animal photos.
I am still learning and want to improve my skills. So I promise to show more soon
Now I am looking for nice gimbal head to use it with

Some very first examples used with 1,7xAF adapter: - lights were moving a lot due to stormy weather.But I really wanted to try

Only Tamron 107b with K-1, all handheld:

Here is my Flickr album where are some more photos:
