eat your heart out!!!! there was very little descrip and no pic with this BIN. it had only been listed for a few minutes. i bought it and then asked the seller if he could send me a pic of the adapter.
i just got an answer saying that it was already boxed but if i was wondering ,, then it's a P/KA mount and i made a good deal.. $16.50 delivered???? i'd say so, as i've seen it go for 10X that..

Big OP grin !!!!

Dang Roy, you stink! Congratulations, you are right, those seldom go for much under $100 and I try to watch for them.

Nice job!

I've been collecting Tamron Adaptalls for over a year and have seen the PK/A adapters rise from around $30 up to $80 or $100 these days. I picked two up cheaply mounted on bargain lenses that I since passed on.

The AD-2 lens I use most is the 70-210 f3.5. It's very nice optically, pretty fast and covers a useful range. I've had a couple of them, but not long ago picked up one brand new in the box for $99! They still appear from time-to-time on auction sites and if you don't have one, I'd definitely keep an eye open.

Of course, I am still keeping my AD-2 300mm f2.8!
