    Not quite a free lens, but, a pawnshop purchase for the equivalent of £5 and one of the shots I took with it ;)

    The lens is the Tamron Adaptall (w/PK mount) 80-210/3.8-4 and the camera is/was a Pentax PZ-1

    The subjects...

    The date ... Oct 16,1996 ... the film, possibly, Fuji Colour 1600 (?)

    Cheers,

    Nice buy. I'm a fan of the Tamron AD2 range and have lenses from 17mm to 300mm, including a couple of the SP zooms. They work very nicely on my Nikon D600.

    Good stuff, Andrew, I have had (AD2 wise), the 17, 24, 28, 90, 135 and the 80-210. Currently, I have the 70-200/2.8 AF :)

    Cheers,

    Hi Jack,how are you?

    Many years ago I hankered after AD2 lenses after reading reviews,but at the time I just couldn`t afford then,sadly.
    I also wanted a Tamron 90mm 2.5 macro.I know it`s not AD2 but Happily I now have one from Ebay purchased recently.

    I`d thought my old Minolta 50mm 2.8 macro was sharp but the Tamron is better.I`ve been using it a lot during lockdown in the garden
    and I`m amazed at the sharpness.

    All the best,Dave

    Hi Dave,

    I'm doing quite well all things being considered :). Luckily, we haven't been 'locked down/in' and, consequently, I have been getting out and about taking snaps galore -- if you're part of FaceBook, check out my albums for the last several months --- https://www.facebook.com/jack.simpson.374/photos_albums---- As for the Tampon 90/2.5 for a few years and, yep, it was a cracker :).

    Hope you're able to get out soon, Dave, and, in the meantime, stay safe :)

    Cheers and here's some snaps from the last few days

    How many people does it take to photograph a police dog and his handler :

    Lenses don't interest me all that much to be honest. I love the photographs though. Particularly the shot of Daltry in his element and the four stages of image capture one!

    Before I saw the date I was going to say that the last two couldn't have been taken yesterday, seeing as the Ox is in his grave quite a few years now. I saw them live in Belfast a few years ago - only Daltry and Townsend obviously. They were performing Quadrophenia - great stuff.

    One of my favourite bands and sadly, after purchasing a number of tickets for aThe Who" concert in Winnipeg, the night they performed I was leaving on a jet plane for my first trip to the UK/Europe and, sadly/ironically, the last tour including Keith Moon :( So, I consider myself kinda lucky to shot Mr. Enthwistle (sp?)

    Cheers,

    Jack
