As a lot of people still have and use their film cameras as I do, I still have my fair share of gear… My main film camera from the 80’s was an Olympus OM4 (which I still have), plus a collection of lenses which is a lot smaller now. But in this collection I have 3 Tamron Adaptall 2 SP lenses… Tamron SP35-80 f/2.8-3.8 Tamron SP70-210 f/3.5-4 Tamron SP35-210 f/3.5-4.2 Tamron SP x2 TC For years these have just sat idle and used very occasionally, and are in brand new condition… I’ve managed to get the Adaptall 2 to suit a Nikon. Well to cut a long story short, got them, tried them and these 25 year old lenses are better than I could ever hoped for… Now to sharpen up my manual focusing skills… As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words… (BTW EXIF file doesn't always show the correct FL and were all shot in jpg's) D300, Tamron 35-210 f3.5-4.2 @180mm, f/5.6, ISO 200 100% crop of above.... D300, Tamron 35-210 f3.5-4.2 in macro mode, 1/80s, f/3.5, ISO 4500 Not too shabby had held in macro and at ISO 4500 D300, Tamron 35-80 f3.5-4 + Kenko x1.4 TC @80mm, 1/125s, f/4, ISO 900 The Kenko works a treat on these lenses... D300, Tamron 70-210 f3.5-4 + Tamron x2 TC @210mm(equal to 630mm in 35mm), 1/640s, f/4, ISO 1400 (Hand Held) D300, Tamron 35-210 f3.5-4.2 @210mm, f/8, ISO 200 D50, Tamron 70-210 f3.5-4 in Macro Mode 1/250s, f/4, ISO200 Well as I said, I was more than happy with how these lenses performed, especially the 35-210 as it gave better than expected IQ for a 25year old 6x zoom, what do you think...??? Has anybody else found some of their old lenses had surprised them in IQ...???
