Seller jmvanauto on Ebay states the Tamron 200 2x is the earlier 200f (as mentioned on this forum earlier) and has the same optical formula which is nice as I have one and the 140F,he expects to get $395.00 US for it.

Not sure the price is justified but this is ultra rare. I have only seen it twice on ebay.

I have three auction results noted in my little list: 112; 264; 206; (the first looks like a bit of a bargain). That ebay BIN is tending to OTT, IMO.

Hi Marcus,I picked up mine a couple years ago and paid $80 Can. from local ad but was not really sure that it was that good,but it is exceptional on the Tamrons it was intended for and like you I collect Tamrons and over a lifetime have accumulated over 70.

One day one might perhaps float by at a price to tempt me...
in the meantime I just want my 014F to work better on my 31A, they don't seem to get on together.

I tried the 200 with a Tamron 500/8 mirror lens...and found it performed the same as the cheaper Tamron SP 2x TC Smile

Graham... it works great on 200-500mm f5.6 and 300 f2.8 it was designed for Pro lens and is very sharp in corners whereas 01F tends to produce softer corners.
