Tamron 28mmF/2.5 Adaptall 2 BBAR

Finally got some time to review this gem!

Condition:- purchased used, in excellent condition.

Build Quality

excellent - the focus moves smoothly and accurately. The lens feels solid and fairly heavy (not a bad thing). The aperture ring felt a little loose but maybe that is the design. Overall it is very solid and feels like it could outlast me.

Sharpness - perfect. Wide open (at 2.5 this lens is sharp in focus), and stopping down increases DOF. Works fine wide open.

Focus - using an adaptall-2 mount with focus confirmation or Live view one can perfectly focus images on my Canon EOS camera.

Here’s a sample image -this is most likely wide open at f2.5
