Topic: Tamron 28mm 1:2,8 28mm lens - Pre Adapt-A-Matic ?

I thought this was an Adapt-A-Matic but I've no idea... it has a Minolta MD fitting.
Sharp lens... well worth £6.50p   wink
Quite a difference in the green?? the green of the rat catcher is correct. To be fair, I haven't set up the 7D to suit the Ozeck.

It seems to me this lens is razor sharp.

I guess this rocks perfectly as a 42mm equivalent.

It's definitely sharp Hanoi... it does focus to infinity so I guess between 40 & 48' ish... it's a bit difficult with this one it's big for a 28mm, very, very big on the nex.. lol.

Steve can probably tell what type of lens this is & the focal length when used on a nex Hanoi... Just under 'SRT-TO' there are 2 adjustable circlips - they move in opposite directions to allow the MD bayonet to be removed/screwed off, I think... any idea Steve??

You're right Harold... it's identical to the second one with the rubber focus band... I had a 300mm Adapt-A-Matic with an M42 fitted but I gave it away. I think this 28mm lens will be well worth keeping & would be best suited to M42 so I'll have a search on Ebay.
Thank you

What would we do without adaptall-2.org?

Re: Tamron 28mm 1:2,8 28mm lens - Pre Adapt-A-Matic ?

I thought I'd this this cheap macro combo (£12 for the 2), the Ozeck 28mm  1:10 macro manual focus lens & Tokina +2 TC - definitely  inexpensive macro combo that works... I wiped the dust off the poor mice...   wink
what do you think??

Looks promising.

Re: Tamron 28mm 1:2,8 28mm lens - Pre Adapt-A-Matic ?

Thanks Harold.
For those on a tight budget., I showed quite a few inexpensive combo's a couple of years ago, mostly with 200mm lenses & a Vivitar X2 -21 TC but I can't find the folder... must have binned it... I think the Clubman 150mm, Tamron 70~210mm & the Clubman PK 80~200mm were the best with that TC?? I'll have another look later? Be careful with the Clubman there are 3 series & one is U/S... I'll check the ones I still have ?

Even though they are pushing Raynox lenses it's a very helpful site Harold & will encourage all who use it... personally, I don't have the patience any more for sitting in front of a computer all day, I had enough of that when I worked.  I've see the results of using reversing techniques & stacking over the years & they produces wonderful results. I suppose what I've been suggesting over the years  is to gain experience by spending £10 on half decent lenses & any extra you have on a decent camera... have some fun learning what the old timers had to contend with first... you'll get many blurred images but every now & then you get a fairly good one...  sometimes... :lol:

Jim,

That last one of Rhingia campestris is one I would like to have taken.

If you increase that £10 to £20, in my experience, you can get various Kiron primes and zooms, if you are prepared to wait for one at the right price. Reversed (Nikon diaphragm still works) they give excellent macro quality at higher magniications. Conventionally mounted, they give good close-ups.

Thanks Harold... I was lucky on the day.
I do have a few Kiron's but really haven't had time to try them out?

Re: Tamron 28mm 1:2,8 28mm lens - Pre Adapt-A-Matic ?

I thought I'd try out one of the Kiron lenses... this one isn't in the photo but I think it's a good walk about lens. f4 - 70~150mm kino precision with macro... it's small for a 150, about the size of the 30~80mm Kiron in the photo. I'm sure I had a 150 before but it was nearly the size of the 200mm, might have been a 28~150 or 135?? I can't remember?
A couple of blue tits... I hope you like them, I was a bit too slow to catch one with a peanut... well, not one that was in focus... lol.
these shots don't show the plumage too well but you see them magnified in flickr... it's a sharp lens

Re: Tamron 28mm 1:2,8 28mm lens - Pre Adapt-A-Matic ?

Yes Jim your lens is very sharp !
The images of the flying bugs are also excellent .

I am a Pentacon and kiev( MF and35 mm) user,and also :contaxII,III,IIa  ,contaflex , contarex bullseye ,voigtlander ....

Re: Tamron 28mm 1:2,8 28mm lens - Pre Adapt-A-Matic ?

Jim,

That was my first Kiron used for macro, succeeded by my 105mm macro. The 70-150 gave some reflections between its rear element and the sensor, so I put a x1.4 TC, with a curved rear element, behind it. I think it only went to 1:4 without a TC.

Thank you Harold... you're right these lenses are worth trying out... I had a Tokina X2 TC I wanted to use on these lenses but as usual a close friend asked for it... & a Tokina 200mm to match... bare faced cheek... how could I refuse... lol
